Data Privacy in Times of Covid-19
We are currently facing one
of the worst health crises in history. This is forcing businesses to convert their activities into digital formats under enormous pressure. Not only our
professional life is affected by the ongoing pandemic, but also our whole daily
life. Students started attending webinars, companies asked their employees to
work from home, gyms offered online courses and museums opened virtual
galleries. The world as we knew it is changing rapidly and experiencing a huge
digital boom. Existing tools are suddenly used exponentially, and new ways of
virtual communication emerge, e.g. many governments are currently using digital apps
to track Covid-19 cases and thus try to control the pandemic.

In this webinar we will
therefore discuss risks and challenges, as well as solutions
and best practices that can be taken up by the private sector to ensure that
the privacy of employees and within the supply chain is protected.
The event will take 90 minutes and is taking place on Thursday, 09 July 2020.
