Trends in Biometrics Legislation, Regulation and Litigation
The biometric privacy legal landscape is fast evolving. Private litigation is raging under the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act, with more than 1,500 related cases filed to date. The Federal Trade Commission and state regulators are increasingly overseeing uses of biometric data, along with new and pending laws governing biometrics. We’ll discuss trends and theories from the plaintiffs’ bar, describe regulators’ areas of focus and highlight key new legislation. We’ll also discuss practical strategies companies can use to reduce litigation and regulatory exposure associated with their use of biometric data. Cooley lawyers Bethany Lobo, Liza Cotter and Andrea Batalla Eguidazu will lead this presentation.
