ICO GDPR Dahua Complaint thumbnail

IPVM has filed a GDPR complaint against Dahua UK's facial recognition conducted at their booth during this year's IFSEC show.

In this post, we explain the reasoning behind the complaint and the difference between this one and the one we made last year, including:

  • Complaint Cause
  • Conference vs Exhibitors
  • Most Egregious
  • Previous Dahua GDPR Claims
  • Reasoning

Overall, we hope our case adds clarity on how facial recognition can be used under GDPR.
