Overview (Program Summary)


In recent years, the collection of biometric data has become increasingly prevalent. While the goal is to safeguard companies and individuals from fraud and identity theft, there are rising concerns about the risks to data privacy, cybersecurity, and compliance. When the technology is compromised and a cyber incident occurs, businesses are not only vulnerable to biometric lawsuits, but possible enforcement actions as well. As litigation risk rise, many companies are grappling with the challenge about whether, and how, to roll out biometric technology.

Join us for a 90-minute presentation where speakers from Crowell & Moring will cover:

• Overview of existing biometric privacy law and prospect of future legislation in other U.S. jurisdictions—particularly Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy Act
• Trends in recent biometric lawsuits and common issues for organizations considering or currently implementing biometric technologies
• Enforcement efforts and what to do when regulators get involved
• Practical guidance for corporate counsel

Attendees will come away with a better understanding of the key issues that they should keep top of mind to ensure biometric regulatory compliance, issues likely raised during biometric litigation, and what to consider at the business operations level when implementing biometric systems.
