Public safety v. privacy: the covid-19 tracing apps conundrum
Covid-19 tracing apps are still under development in many countries all around the world, and are rising issues in relation to the precarious balance between upholding privacy of the individuals and benefits to public health.
We will discuss this very interesting and actual topic with prominent speakers from the Norwegian and Australian DPAs, and we’ll also comment an interview of the tech company that developed the South Korean app with our legal experts from Australia, Israel, Singapore and Belgium. No doubt, countries have gone different ways: in Australia the covid-19 tracing app has been generally welcomed by the population; in Israel the Services are authorized to track contacts of covid-19 patients even in the 14 days preceding their diagnosis; Singapore was among the first countries to implement such measures with positive results on the prevention side, though collecting a lot of personal data; while Belgium, like any other EU member state, had to balance the national pandemic situation with the EU GDPR and national DPA requirements applicable to this technology.
