Clark, Prestegaard, Presenters, CICU Biometric Webinar

Phillips Lytle LLP Partners Anna Mercado Clark and Linda T. Prestegaard presented for an exclusive webinar hosted by The Commission on Independent Colleges & Universities (CICU) titled, “Are You Collecting Student and Employee Biometric Data? Avoid Risks When Collecting and Managing Biometric Information” on Tuesday, April 27 via Zoom.

Do you use fingerprints, palm prints, iris scans or face scans to permit access into buildings, or to track employees or students physically or virtually? Are you thinking of employing facial recognition technology, using smart devices or allowing employees to use smart devices, or tracking students during testing? If so, you may be collecting biometric information that is subject to various legal requirements. Remote work and learning during the COVID-19 pandemic have increased adoption of these technologies by educational institutions. CICU and Phillips Lytle LLP discuss how you may be collecting biometric data and how to manage the resulting security risks, as well as educational institutions’ privacy, security and employer obligations when gathering the personal data of employees and students.
