What is Community Data?

Community Data is an information submission and collection initiative that involves the general public, non-profit organizations, corporations, and government agencies.

The Community Data initiative makes it possible to verify the credibility of every member of a community through the information about them submitted by their family members, friends, colleagues, business associates, partners, and neighbours.

For many years, people have relied on community data to verify individuals' credibility before going into any form of agreement with them.

The practice has also helped in KYC compilations for fortune 500 companies and saved them from bankruptcy as many prospective partners with good financial records from Credit Bureaus were discovered to be heavily indebted and fraudulent through community data.

Community Data is an age-long verification technique that has proved to be the safest and most accurate matrix used to measure credibility and character.

The adoption of this model gives DenyList leverage above its contemporaries. It is an all-around verification process for users in determining the credibility of prospective employees, clients, partners, applicants, etc.

The three goals of the Community Data Program are:

  • To access data of individuals at the smallest geographies possible.
  • To assist organizations to access individual data for better decision making.
  • To network, communicate, and disseminate the results of individual credibility data as widely as possible.
