France's National Commission on Computing & Liberties (CNIL), its personal data watchdog, has issued guidance on the appropriate use of biometric facial recognition software technology. Readers who are deploying facial recognition software for compliance or law enforcement purposes are advised to consult these guidelines.
France is presently far ahead of the United States in this field, and its actions should be required reading for any user of facial recognition technology for the image identification of individuals, whether it be to confirm client identity in banking customer due diligence, or to identify unknown subjects in a law enforcement investigation.
Readers who wish to review the guidance may access the complete text of the document Reconnaissance Faciale: Pour un Debat á la Hauteur des Enjeux here.
