I never thought of GMAC's efforts to scan my body as Privacy efforts, more of security, but i guess all along they were working for for me - to protect my privacy!
The winner in the Small Organization category for Privacy Innovation (fewer than 5,000 employees), is Graduate Management Admission Council (GMAC), a not-for-profit organization of graduate-level business schools around the world that also owns and administers the Graduate Management Admission Test, or GMAT. The organization was recognized by the 2009 Innovation Award judges for its data protection program in support of the GMAT exam. This comprehensive program incorporated opt-in consent for all programs and services as well as advanced biometric palm vein technology to authenticate test takers. GMAC became the first organization to be authorized by France’s privacy authority, the CNIL, to process such data.
