Data and privacy – how COVID-19 is rewriting the rulebook

United Kingdom

Temperature checking, thermal imaging and more – how is the tension between data & privacy and data sharing and usage in the public interest playing out in the time of COVID-19?

We are joined by Alex Milner-Smith, Co-Head of the Data & Privacy Group at our Ius Laboris UK firm, Lewis Silkin, to discuss how past data protection norms are being pulled out of shape by the pandemic. We also take a practical look at how to undertake a data privacy impact assessment and Alex provides his checklist of issues for employers to focus on from a privacy perspective.
