July 20, 2021 – Post-Pandemic Privacy – Sharon Polsky

July 20, 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

You’re invited to join us ONLINE for our July event.

About Our Event

The pandemic proved to be a perfect platform for promoting privacy-invasive programs, practices and platforms — from contact tracing apps to Zoom meetings and proving who’s had which vaccine.
Remote school, remote work, remote medicine, and other technological innovations facilitated life through the pandemic. Many of the new technologies and processes are here to stay — but at what cost to individuals’ privacy and organizational risk?

You can expect to learn:

  • The history and harm of COVID Vaccine Passports
  • Key privacy and practical implications of adopting or requiring proof of vaccination
  • Proper post-pandemic privacy practices
