Examining the Intersection of Voiceprints and Data Privacy Laws

The use of so-called voiceprints for authentication purposes is becoming increasingly common. Along with the benefits of those AI-driven technologies come multiple risks, especially privacy risks.  A recent Practising Law Institute seminar took a deep dive into voiceprints, examining the issues raised by the underlying technology, how voiceprinting differs from other voice-based systems, how voiceprints are treated under biometric privacy and other data privacy laws and other risks associated with the technology. The program featured Gail Gottehrer, founder of the Law Office of Gail Gottehrer; Ronald J. Hedges, senior counsel at Dentons; and Debbie Reynolds, founder and CEO of Debbie Reynolds Consulting. This article distills their insights. See “The Rise of Facial Recognition Technology: Uses and Risks” (Jan. 22, 2020).
