01 July 2020 12:24 GMT

The Spanish data protection authority ('AEPD') has published a technical note explaining on 14 misunderstandings in relation to biometric identification.

The document, aimed at data protection officers, managers and delegates, among others, aims to offer information about the most common confusions and inaccuracies that are usually associated with the use of this technology, so that these groups can understand the implications of such a complex type of treatment .

The technical note has been developed together with the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) in the framework of the collaboration that the AEPD maintains in the technological field with various national and international institutions. Collaboration with EDPS materialized for the first time in the development of the technical note Introduction to Hash as a pseudonymisation technique for personal data.
