Biometrics & Digital Identity Verification – 2021 Data Protection & Privacy Regulation Insights

The events of 2020 have prompted a dramatic acceleration of online access, cyberattacks against businesses and consumers, and news headlines about the use of physical biometrics technology like facial recognition to prosecute crimes – or commit them.

One of the more novel approaches in this space is behavioral biometrics which is used to assure that the person on the other end of that log in is who they claim to be, based on how they engage.

But what are the regulatory, legal, and privacy challenges to leveraging physical or behavioral biometrics and their impacts on the choices you make for your organization and your customers?

Watch CSO Worldwide Managing Director Bob Bragdon in a BehavioSec sponsored event as he sits down with UK biometrics Analyst, Alan Goode and an expert panel to review:

  • A featured presentation by Alan Goode on his report findings including current and proposed regulations across the EU, US, APAC, and LATAM with real-world enforcement examples 

  • Biometrics modalities and how their differences impact security, compliance, and data privacy – including legal findings on behavioral biometrics, GDPR, and explicit consent requirements 

  • Live (recorded) discussion between the expert panelists
