Webinar: Emerging Biometric Data Risks

Events / Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2018

In recent months, the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA) has been the subject of renewed interest from the plaintiffs’ bar, with more than 60 BIPA-related class actions filed since August. Given the increased use of biometric-based technologies and attention focused on their potential privacy implications, every indication is that this trend will continue. BakerHostetler hosted a webinar on Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2018.

Webinar attendees learned about:
  • Types of biometric identifiers and technology, and the various applications for their use in commercial contexts.
  • Employment related litigation.
  • The history of BIPA lawsuits and the latest on recent decisions that are likely to influence litigation going forward.
  • Other similar state laws and pending legislation related to biometric identifiers.
  • Suggested compliance strategies and proactive steps to consider in response to this trend.
