Data security

Jaama has recently joined the Association for Driving Licence Verification (ADLV) in the lead-up to the abolition of the current paper counterpart at the start of 2015.

The body is made up of providers of driver licence checking and aims to make sure companies submitting batch checks for driving licences online are audited to meet the DVLA's data assurance standards.

Jaama MD Martin Evans says: "We do have some customers who are quite edgy about sharing information. We have to act as a conduit for those companies and they can be sure in the knowledge that we're doing things correctly and securely.

"It's a case of reassuring them and making sure the data is encrypted."

Jaama's electronic driver entitlement checking service (EDECS) is used by a wide range of fleets and contract hire and leasing companies to check the validity of employees' driving licences. The service is available as a stand-alone product or can be integrated within Jaama's Key2 software to look at a driver's safety record and points history. Employees have to give their permission for checks to be carried out against the DVLA's database for companies to be able to use the system and access information.

The ADLV will conduct regular audits of members to make sure they operate within a strict code of conduct to ensure that the DVLA's data assurance standards are met.

Evans says: "Joining the ADLV changes nothing for our customers except that we will work in partnership with the organisation and the DVLA in the development of the next generation of the EDECS licence-checking service.
