Protecting Data Privacy in a Pandemic: New Considerations under GDPR

June 3, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 1:45 pm

All aspects of the compliance world are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many organizations are facing layoffs and/or managing newly-remote workforces, and as such, need to review their policies and protocols to ensure employee and customer data processing and handling is in compliance with GDPR. Doing due diligence on providers is key as well, since data processors must also be in compliance. And it’s not just about IT security – how are hard copy documents being addressed when employees work from home? 

Join Chris O’Connor, Director of eDiscovery Strategy at CDS and Jonathan Armstrong, Partner at Cordery in London, for a discussion of GDPR compliance in a COVID-19 world.  We will review topics such as: 

  • Appropriate technical and organizational measures (TOMs)
  • When to use a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA)
  • Identifying exposure and protecting against data breaches
  • Communicating with customers
  • Managing and overseeing remote employees
  • Minimizing risk
