The collection of DNA data which, like other biometric data, can be used not only to identify an individual, but also as evidence in an investigation to determine whether they have committed a crime. The ISO/IEC 27000 series provides best practice recommendations for information security management and ISO/IEC 27001 describes an information security management system. The standard includes more than a dozen areas, of which the following five main topics should be considered a minimum. proportionality and minimization. The data collected must be proportionate to the purpose of the identification system in order to avoid unnecessary data collection and “functional slippage”, both of which can lead to privacy risks. This is often worded in such a way that only the “minimum necessary” data – including transaction metadata – should be collected to achieve the intended purpose.
