Overview:

The increasing use of biometrics across industries has provided security improvements and better access control in the way companies do their businesses today. With its various advantages, the market for biometric technologies has also grown rapidly, redefining the norm of human authentication and identification.

While convenience and security are the biggest rewards of using biometric data, this trend has also raised several regulatory and litigation risks, specifically under the Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). The number of BIPA-related class action filings has surged in recent years, underscoring the need for business entities to be more proactive and meticulous when it comes to their compliance practices.

In this LIVE webcast, experienced class action lawyers Jennifer A. Riley (Duane Morris LLP) and Gregory P. Abrams (Faegre Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP) will delve into an in-depth analysis of the current trends and recent court rulings involving the Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). The speakers will also provide the audience with practical strategies for bringing out the best in these lawsuits in a rapidly evolving legal climate.

Key topics that will be covered in this discussion are:

  • Overview of the Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA)
  • An Up-Close Look at the Biometric Legal Landscape
  • Recent Trends in Biometric Litigation
  • Navigating the New Regulatory and Legal Framework
  • Notable Class Action Cases
