The European Data Privacy Board and many Data Protection Authorities from across Europe have provided updates and reflected on data handling in a time of crisis. We have summarized the key takeaways to keep in mind.
With Europe taking drastic measures to curb the spread of the corona virus known as Covid-19, it is clear that many things have to take a back seat, as governments and society work to stabilise the spread of the virus. However, data, and specifically health data, is an integral part of understanding how the virus spreads and ensuring appropriate measures are taken. Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) from across Europe have provided reminders and guidelines for dealing with data privacy amid these unprecedented circumstances.
We have analysed the key points from several European Data Protection Authorities, to keep in mind as you conduct business and handle personal data. While each DPA has a different perspective and approach, ultimately they all share a call to continue protecting personal data.
