LJD Week 2020:
Exposure Notification Systems: A Privacy Smart Response to COVID-19

November 16, 2020 / 2:00-3:00PM ET

View the three featured sessions on WB Live, Nov 16-18th 

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought forward key issues in the area of privacy policy. As global leaders, institutions and the private sector rely increasingly on personal data to acquire information on individuals and communities in the fight against COVID-19, many concerns remain about how information is collected and used.  

Google and Apple announced a joint effort to enable the use of Bluetooth technology to help governments and health agencies reduce the spread of the virus, with user privacy and security central to the design. This session will explore the Google and Apple’s Exposure Notification initiative as well as how contact-tracing technologies have been successfully used in several countries in their response to COVID 19.
