According to CICC, the new version of “information security technology personal information security specification” implemented on October 1 of this year requires that before collecting face, fingerprint and other personal biometric information, the personal information subject should be separately informed of the purpose, method, scope and storage time of personal biometric information collection and use, and obtain the consent of the personal information subject. This is obviously a strong signal released by the government to strengthen the protection of personal information.
With the development of science and technology, in recent years, face recognition technology presents the trend of accelerating landing. From the construction of smart city to the login and unlocking of mobile client, we can see the shadow of face recognition technology in various scenes.
According to the research of China Capital Clearing Corporation, on the issue of “compulsory use” of face recognition, 27.39% of the respondents met compulsory face recognition in the scene of “traffic security inspection”, followed by “real name registration” (26.42%), “account opening and account cancellation” (25.94%), “payment transfer” (25.81%), and “access control” (21.76%). Zhongshou clearing learned from the interviewees that compared with face recognition, the interviewees are more willing to use fingerprint, mobile phone verification code, password and other verification means.
Face recognition is an information technology to recognize or verify a person’s identity by scanning the face features. It is another convenient biometric technology after fingerprint comparison, iris scanning, speech recognition and so on. It has been widely used in social real life. However, due to the uniqueness and sensitivity of personal biometric information such as facial features, once the consumer’s “biometric code” is illegally collected and abused, it is very easy to endanger their personal and property security. For example, the sales calls of real estate agents, the information leakage of patients and returnees in epidemic areas during the epidemic period, and the theft of airline mileage caused by personal information leakage of a star all indicate the loss of face information leakage and abuse or the violation of privacy.
In view of the current reality of the popularity of face brushing technology and such disputes, China first clearing believes that for the abuse of face recognition technology, it is a wise move to improve the relevant regulatory regulations as soon as possible, fill in the blank of system design, and effectively protect the legitimate rights and interests of citizens.
