  • EPIC Urges UK ICO To Address Law Enforcement Use of Private Data/Systems, Security Issues, AI, and “Soft Biometrics” in Draft Biometric Data Guidance

    In comments filed October 20th, EPIC urged the UK ICO's Identity and Trust Team (Technology Policy) to make updates to its draft biometric data guidance. In particular, we recommend that the guidance be expanded to (i) address the pervasive ties between law enforcement and private companies' biometric data and systems; (ii) establish baseline security standards for biometric processing, including a template risk assessment; and (iii) detail the risks of scale and scope of harm present where AI is integrated into biometric systems.
