Dr. Ann Cavoukian lends privacy expertise to D-ID advisory board

 

Privacy by Design framework creator Dr. Ann Cavoukian has joined D-ID’s advisory board to share her privacy expertise, the biometric facial recognition-blocking company has announced.

Cavoukian is a three-term Privacy Commissioner for the Canadian province of Ontario, and is currently the Executive Director of the Global Privacy & Security by Design Centre.

“We are thrilled and honored to welcome Ann to our Advisory Board,” comments D-ID Co-founder and CEO Gill Perry. “Her rich experience and deep understanding of privacy regulation will be a huge asset for us as we continue to advance our revolutionary facial-recognition blocking platform.”

“Our face is among the most sensitive biometrics in existence,” says Cavoukian. “If a facial image is obtained without consent, it can easily be compromised, resulting in devastating occurrences such as identity theft. Technologies such as D-ID’s can greatly protect facial images and take individuals and organizations out of harm’s way.”

Cavoukian recently criticized Toronto Police for a lack of transparency in their use of facial recognition.

D-ID won a 2019 Netexplo award in April, and is also presenting its deep-learning facial image shielding technology at Identity Week 2019 in London.
