Applied Biometrics for Security of CI

4 August 2016, JRC Ispra

The meeting reviewed the outputs from this TG that are being finalized. One of these is a report assessing the privacy issues concerning the use of biometric technologies. This work has identified the main areas of current concern, particularly associated with the use of biometrics for surveillance, and the impact of recent legislation, including the General Data Protection Regulation, and the Data Protection Directive. Additionally, the experts brain-stormed the possible biometric-related topics that could form part of the future work programme for this Group. These ideas are documented into the summary report of the TG’s recent activities.
