The Impact of Privacy and Data Protection Legislation on Biometric Authentication

Today as never before, users are sharing personal information, and over the past few years this data increasingly includes biometric data.

But what rights do consumers have, and what legal obligations apply to businesses that collect Behavioral biometric data? This paper examines the legislation as it pertains to Behavioral  biometric data, and the legal guidelines as it relates to cloud services.

This white paper from Goode Intelligence (GI) explores the impact of privacy and security on biometric systems and data. It identifies state privacy and data protection legislation that is applicable to biometrics and examines a legal memorandum commissioned by behavioral biometrics specialists BehavioSec.

The white paper argues that as more and more biometric solutions are deployed to mainstream digital services, questions surrounding the privacy and security implications of biometrics are increasingly being asked. With the growth of biometric technology and its expansion on to consumer digital services, privacy and security concerns are correspondingly growing.

The white paper explores:

  • The impact of privacy and security on biometrics
  • Definition of Biometric Data
  • The impact of data protection legislation on biometric data:

– The European Union experience
– Other regions experience

  • Legal analysis on BehavioSec’s Behavioral Biometrics Technology
  • An introduction to BehavioSec’s Behavioral Biometrics
