WPF presenting US biometric privacy analysis at Biometric Institute

Pam Dixon, ED of the World Privacy Forum, will present a detailed analysis of privacy and biometrics in the US to a multistakeholder group convened by the Biometric Institute. The talk will outline key biometric misunderstandings, key risks, priorities for solutions, and key solutions that already exist. WPF has done extensive work in biometrics, including original research on the Aadhaar biometric ID in India as well as new research on identity ecosystems in African countries and other jurisdictions.

The presentation is being hosted by the Biometrics Institute, and will be held at the US Department of Homeland Security in the Washington DC area.
