Barclay Damon Live: Cyber Sip—"Biometric Privacy Claims—Tips to Limit Your Exposure," With Bryan McCarthy

In episode 34 of Barclay Damon Live: Cyber Sip™, host Kevin Szczepanski welcomes back Bryan McCarthy of Transatlantic Reinsurance Company to discuss limiting exposure to biometric privacy claims. They continue the conversation they started in episode 28 about the effects of Illinois’s Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). BIPA is intended to protect residents of Illinois but has ramifications for businesses across the country. Hear Kevin and Bryan review what companies can do to protect themselves through insurance coverage for biometric privacy claims—claims about fingerprints, retinal scans, and other biometric data not being handled properly under BIPA. Beginning with who is subject to the statute (you may be surprised) and then moving on to the wisdom, as Bryan says, of “everyone being on the same page” with regard to coverage, they give a solid overview. Tune in.
