Digital contact tracing & the future of privacy



In their efforts to tackle the COVID-19 crisis, organizations are considering the development and use of smartphone applications for contact tracing. This technology tracks down anyone who potentially might have been infected, so those contacts can be in quarantine to prevent further spread. Even though these applications differ in technology and methods, there is an increasing concern about their implications for privacy and human rights. In this webinar we will evaluate their suitability in terms of impact on the users, employed technology and governance methods.
