The significance of regulating people's personal data in the context of implementing each person's right to privacy of personal life and family life becomes especially crucial for the purposes of ensuring biogenetical safety of people in Russia. This requires raising the issue of implementing the right to privacy in the context of the biotechnological revolution. The special legal significance of this issue in the Russian Federation is connected with the passing of such laws as the Law "On personal data" and the Law "On state genome registration in the Russian Federation".

This article analyzes the legal status of biometric personal data. We note the need for legal regulation of the protection of biometric information as confidential data.

The results of this research are based on using the following methods: universal dialectical method of scientific cognition, as well as general scientific methods based on it (description, analysis, synthesis, induction, deduction, comparison, analogy, generalization) and specific scientific methods (comparative law method, systematic structural method and formal law method).
