During Biometrics Month which encompasses four days of the Biometrics Congress (6, 13, 20 & 26 October), this satellite workshop will dive deeper into the topic of biometrics and privacy.

This very interactive course will help you develop a better understanding of potential privacy risks biometrics may pose and how to use the guidelines as a tool to work through important considerations such as consent, proportionality and purpose to name a few.

The workshop will take participants through a range of scenarios discussing how they potentially impact on privacy and how this could be managed. This is a must-attend event for anyone involved in the planning or implementation of a biometric system providing thought-provoking debate and guidance. It will address:

  • The role and composition of the Biometrics Institute Privacy Expert Group (PEG)
  • The aim of the Privacy Guidelines
  • What is the thinking behind them?
  • An explanation about each guideline principle
  • Why new guidelines have been added
  • Why a Privacy Impact Assessment is important


Terry Aulich is head of the Privacy Experts Group (PEG) of the Biometrics Institute. Terry Aulich is also the chairman of Aulich & Co, strategic advisors, pollsters and market researchers since 1993.

He was a state minister and federal senator for over sixteen years where he was chair of a number of influential committees, one of which was the Australia Card committee which recommended the successful implementation of Australia’s Privacy Act, the 100-point bank identification system, the tax file number system and other anti-fraud measures.

As a head of the Biometrics Institute’s Privacy and Policy Expert Group he provides strategic advice to the CEO and Board. He is also chair of the Privacy Committee of the Australian Market and Social Research Organisation.
