Face Recognition Data Security

Data security and cyber security have come knocking (and pounding) on the PACS door and rightfully so. In the world of biometrics, concern over biometric data security has long existed. After all, you've only got two irises and 10 digits, those get compromised and it's a problem. But in the case of face recognition, do you think we can hold biometric face data to a lower standard? Is a standard even necessary? People do not have a reasonable right to privacy in a public area and can be made to comply in the workplace (e.g., photo badge). Our faces are fully exposed every day, everywhere and to everyone. So forget about reverse engineering a biometric face template to reveal the root image data. It's already out there. Do you think in the unique case of this biometric, that a different standard may apply to the securing, safeguarding and transferring of biometric data?
