Barclay Damon Live: Cyber Sip Podcast—"What's Up With BIPA?," With Bryan McCarthy

Host Kevin Szczepanski is back with episode 28 of Barclay Damon Live: Cyber Sip™. Kevin and his guest, Bryan McCarthy of Transatlantic Reinsurance Company, explore Illinois’s Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA), its 2008 origins, and what it mandates. Bryan, a senior claims examiner for Trans Re, and Kevin agree that the topic of protecting biometric information is critical and timely—whether that information comes from a fingerprint, retinal scan, or facial recognition. Also critically important: knowing if, when, how, and by whom the information is being collected, stored, and destroyed. You might be surprised to learn how broadly applicable this Illinois-based act is, how non-compliance is punishable, and the trends in class-action lawsuits because of it. Listen for more.
