The Legatum Prosperity Index, a ranking based on factors such as economic growth, education, health and quality of life, has put Norway at the top its list seven years in a row. Despite a relatively small population, Norway is an economic force. A quarter of its GDP is derived from oil and natural gas exports, but it also shows strength as a new economy. Bloomberg says it’s the 14th most innovative country in the world, and it currently ranks ninth in the World Bank’s annual ease of doing business report.
Norway’s Personal Data Act governs how businesses can collect, store and use information about Norwegian citizens. Personal data can only be collected with the consent of the individual, and the collector must inform each subject of his or her rights under the law. The Norwegian Data Protection Authority is responsible for enforcing the Personal Data Act.

Identity Verification Partners
The GDC global identity verification platform integrates the best available data and verification intelligence curated from our dozens of in-country partners. Each partner maintains identity verification solutions in their home country, helping in-country clients solve a variety of business problems. They deliver the most reliable identity verification results because they speak the language, understand the regulatory environment, and offer local expertise.
Before joining the consortium, partners are required to go through a thorough vetting process, and their data must pass rigorous testing before it is released to GDC customers. But once they qualify to participate, they are our true partners and a big part of the GDC difference.
