Julie Dawson


Chief Policy & Regulatory Officer

Julie leads regulatory and government relations, steers ethics framework development liaising closely with the Yoti Guardians Council, and prepares Yoti for external accreditations - such as ISO 27001, HIPAA,  BCorps for ethics and transparency and the SOC2 security accreditation.

Yoti is an identity checking system that allows organisations to verify who people are, online and in person. Yoti has a team of over 300 based in London, with offices in Mumbai and present in the US, Canada and Australia. We count over 11 million installs of the Yoti app, following our launch in November 2017. For consumers, it’s an app that helps them prove who they are and confirm the identities of others. We distinguish ourselves with our approach to privacy and security; the system has been architected so that it's impossible for us to monetise users personal data.

Julie serves on a number of Boards - WEF Digital Identity Innovators & Global Coalition for  Digital Safety, member of the IEEE  Children’s Advisory Group, the OSTIA Online Safety Tech Industry Association and the techUK digital identity and Public Sector Board.
