Sedona Conference Moves Forward on Recommendations by Professor Brian Ray

Professor Brian Ray continues to play an important leadership role in the Sedona Conference, a leading international non-profit organization focused on law and technology policy.

Most recently, Professor Ray chaired the Biometric Data Privacy Brainstorming Group. The Sedona Conference WG11 Steering Committee recently announced two drafting groups for new white papers based on outlines suggested by Professor Ray’s group: (1) a biometric privacy primer and (2) legal principles that should govern notice and consent in connection with the use of an individual’s biometric facial recognition data. The Sedona Conference typically selects only a small number of brainstorming group outlines to develop into full white papers.

  1. Brian– You’re on fire! This is great. Cool news re the grant, too. I’d love to hear more about it. Also, I’ve been doing something similar with environmental students for at least a decade — not cyber at all — but putting students from law, engineering, environmental science and environmental policy in the same class and working (sometimes) on scenario-based learning. If I can help at all, please don’t hesitate to ask. Heidi
