Data Protection Think Tank: the ethical use of biometrics

Biometrics is a hot topic in data protection, with public and private sector alike wrestling with associated compliance challenges.

Police use of facial recognition technology has come under media and ICO scrutiny, with an ICO opinion on private sector use due in the new year. Retailers are also exploring facial recognition for faster checkouts and customer loyalty programmes.

For some sectors, regulatory requirements such as strong customer authentication are leading to a fine balancing act between security and tackling crime, and protecting privacy rights.

Join us at this event to delve into privacy implications of using biometric data and discuss how you can address some of the challenges and make the most of the technology whilst staying compliant. You'll work through real world examples in groups to facilitate real discussion of the issues and resolutions.

There will also be the opportunity to network with your peers and collaborate over discursive case studies.
