Sharon R. Klein Quoted in Law360 Article, 'Wash. Expands Biometric Privacy Quilt With More Limited Law'

Sharon R. Klein (CIPP/US), a partner with Pepper Hamilton, chair of the firm's Privacy, Security and Data Protection practice and a leader of the Technology practice, was quoted in the July 21, 2017 Law360 article, "Wash. Expands Biometric Privacy Quilt With More Limited Law."

"It appears that Washington is trying to have the best of all worlds, by protecting citizens from the sale and commercialization of biometric databases while at the same time not restricting businesses that are using the data for purposes such as enhancing security, which is becoming increasingly common due to the rise of two-factor authentication," Sharon Klein, who chairs Pepper Hamilton LLP's privacy, security and data protection practice, said.
