Biometrics Institute publishes questions for organizations to ask for responsible use
The Biometrics Institute has published a set of five questions for organizations to ask in order to ensure the responsible use of biometrics in a blog post by Chief Executive Isabelle Moeller.
The questions were supplied, at Moeller’s request, by the Biometric Institute’s Privacy and Policy Expert Group (PEG), which has been discussing the EU GDPR on an ongoing basis.
The questions include: Is the collection of biometric data proportional? Has informed consent for the collection of biometric data been received from the data subject? Has the biometric system and its owner been accredited? By whom? When? What data subject information is shared with the data subject (data portability) or others (data sharing)? and Can the data subject request that their biometric data be updated? Or erased?
The post provides details on what the questions mean and how to answer them. Moeller also refers readers to a recent blog post on privacy, and the Institute’s privacy guidelines.
Other resources produced by the Biometrics Institute include its recently-published good-practice guide for enterprises.
