Data Protection Considerations after the Lockdown

June 2, 2020

About the Webinar

It is the fact that current pandemic has significantly impacted the different fields ranging from business operations, healthcare economy to cyber security. Governments have been making unprecedented interventions in response to the coronavirus, however all the sectors seem to change in front of our eyes. It obviously became challenging for organizations to manage data protection compliance.

In this webinar, we look to the future of privacy with Baroum Mrad, a Data Protection Officer at Cantonal Hospital of Ticino in Switzerland. We will provide recommendations and practical advice to organisations with respect to some aspects of privacy and data protection after the lockdown. We will also delve into whether the pandemic will lead to mass digital surveillance by governments. If so, the bigger question is whether or not the governments would retract these privacy contravening measures once things get back to normal.
