Public health emergencies and crises such as the COVID-19 pandemic present unique security and privacy concerns for companies and other organizations. In fact, the related challenges CISOs and other security and privacy professionals have been confronted with as a result of the current COVID–19 crisis continues to rise.
For example, to facilitate a surge in “work-from-home” demand, many companies have expedited IT infrastructure expansion and cloud capability resulting in shortened security vetting and testing processes. There has also been increased stress on existing systems and, for most companies, a significant increase in cybersecurity incidents. In addition to security concerns, companies are using personal data and analytics in new, previously unforeseen ways to safeguard their workforces, customers, and business operations, which present a myriad of privacy challenges. In addition, other privacy concerns and risks arise from the collection of new data, such as temperature results and COVID-19 tests.
This webinar will examine risk considerations post-pandemic and address such questions as:
What privacy challenges should I be thinking about and preparing for post-pandemic?
Are digital health surveillance techniques in the workplace privacy infringing? Are there any unintended consequences for the workforce?
What will “business as usual” look like post COVID - 19 from a privacy perspective and how does that impact the CISO role?
Do CISOs need to take extra precautionary measures for any health data that is generated as the result of employee testing?
