Next Privacy Multistakeholder Process to Focus on Facial Recognition

The National Telecommunications and Information Administration has announced that the next privacy multistakeholder process will focus on "privacy safeguards for the use of facial recognition technology." The process was designed by the Obama Administration to apply the Consumer Privacy Bill of Rights to industry, and recently developed a voluntary code of conduct regarding mobile app transparency. In comments to the agency, EPIC recommended that the CPBR be codified in the form of comprehensive privacy legislation. For more information, see EPIC: NTIA Multistakeholder Process.
