Data Protection: Lessons learned from the COVID-19 lockdown and how best to prepare for a second lockdown

Webinar | 23 September 2020 | 12:00 PM CET

Host: Dulce Miranda

Presenters: Dr. Söntje Julia Hilberg, Gonçalo Quintino, and Arnaud Raynouard

The outbreak of the COVID-19 has significant impact on different areas including data protection. In case of a second lockdown, what measures and policies should your organization have in place? Are the temporary measures implemented in the first lockdown useful and applicable in a second lockdown? We’ll discuss:

  • If a vaccine is developed:
    • Can you write a policy to ask people to declare whether or not they have been vaccinated?
    • Can you keep a log and force people to do it?
    • Would the EU/governments be open to changing data privacy laws to allow this for exceptional circumstances like pandemics?
  • If an effective treatment is found:
    • COVID-19 will then turn into something more like an everyday sickness, do you then abolish your policies or keep it in case something similar happens with a different disease?
    • Can you ask employees in their contracts to opt into disclosure of health information and what are the consequences?
  • How to build a resilient Data Privacy Organization and a data privacy compliant crises management?

Join our Deloitte specialists who will share the lessons learned and what can be done in the next phase from a data protection perspective.
