LumenVox’ Top 10 Blogs of 2020


As 2021 begins, we wanted to look back at all the content we put out to educate and inform our LumenVox readers in 2020. We touched on a diverse set of subjects from artificial intelligence to fraud strategy for contact centers—and even introduced a podcast series with LumenVox thought leaders. Here’s a summary of our top 10 blog posts that resonated with our audience in 2020.

  1. On Voice Biometric Privacy and Informed Consent – In 2020 it was announced that a biometric data privacy suit implicated the voice biometrics company, Pindrop. According to the plaintiffs, informed consent requirements were not followed when collecting, storing, and utilizing voiceprints to authenticate customers for Amazon Web Services, which the plaintiffs claim violates the Illinois Biometric Information Privacy Act (BIPA). This scenario is exactly what LumenVox works hard to avoid. Find out how here.
