IAPP: The Privacy Advisor Podcast: Should we give up our data to help the herd?

Telecommunications companies across the world, including in Germany, Brazil and China, have granted their governments access to customers’ cellphone data in an effort to help track COVID-19. In the U.S., government officials are consulting with big tech companies and public health professionals on the possibility of doing so, while authorities in the Netherlands have said emergency legislation must be enacted before sharing occur. In this episode of The Privacy Advisor Podcast, Heather Federman, CIPP/US, vice president of privacy and policy at BigID, discusses the potential long term implications of these emergency provisions and the role privacy officers should play in boardroom discussions on sharing customer data.
