As the world rapidly changes to address the COVID-19 pandemic, what’s at stake for privacy?

The world is rapidly digitising in response to the new world order. Working from home means using personal WiFi and Internet. Companies are adding network technology to expand coverage and capability. Tele-health regulation is being approved in days instead of years. Apps like Houseparty and video conferencing are exploding. New government initiatives including contact tracing apps are being implemented at lightning speed.

To explore the privacy issues around these developments, join Australian Information Commissioner and Privacy Commissioner Angelene Falk, New Zealand Privacy Commissioner John Edwards, IDCARE'S Managing Director David Lacey, and IIJ Principle Consultant Taiji Miyaoka.
