Technology has been advancing rapidly, and unfortunately the law has been slow to catch up. Luckily, here in Illinois, we are one of the few states that have protections in place against misuse of an individual's biometric data. The Illinois Biometric Privacy Act (BIPA) gives consumers a way to fight back against large corporations and employers who make use of biometric data such as fingerprints, retina scans, and facial recognition. Take a look at the infographic below to learn more about BIPA and how it can protect you.
