EVENING LECTURE BY ROSEMARY JAY, HUNTON & WILLIAMS - The Impact of the General Data Protection Regulation on Use of Biometrics

6 - 7:30 pm (followed by reception)

The evening lecture will be a keynote lecture by Rosemary Jay, senior consultant attorney at Hunton & Williams and author of Sweet & Maxwell’s Data Protection Law & Practice.

Her lecture, Heads and shoulders, knees and toes (eyes and ears and mouth and nose…), will consider the impact of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) on the use of biometrics.

Biometrics are touted as one of the next big things in the connected world. Specific reference to biometrics and genetic data has been included for the first time in the General Data Protection Regulation. How does this affect existing provisions? Will the impact of the GDPR be to encourage or to restrict the development of biometric technology?
