Privacy Talks Series
Trends in Biometrics Legislation, Regulation and Litigation
From the General Data Protection Regulation to the California Consumer Privacy Act – and all the other new data protection frameworks arising in the US, Asia and Latin America – navigating the global data protection landscape is a challenge for most organizations. In this virtual series, Cooley practitioners provide attendees with practical guidance and best practices around managing data protection-related issues. We also keep you up to date on recent developments in the ever-evolving regulatory landscape.
Session 1: 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 discuss trends and theories from the plaintiffs’ bar, describe regulators’ areas of focus and highlight key new legislation. We also discuss practical strategies companies can use to reduce litigation and regulatory exposure associated with their use of biometric data. Cooley partner Bethany Lobo leads this presentation.
