The last five years have witnessed a tsunami of filings in state and federal courts arising out of alleged violations of Illinois’ Biometric Information Privacy (“BIPA”). BIPA governs private companies’ collection, use and storage of individuals’ biometric data (e.g., fingerprints, handprints, facial scans, etc.), and imposes stringent statutory penalties for noncompliance—ranging from $1,000 to $5,000 per violation. This CLE presentation will provide a primer on BIPA’s requirements and a summary of recent trends in BIPA litigation that companies should consider as they evaluate their own biometric-usage practices and develop strategies for defending potential BIPA lawsuits.
