Is everybody confused about what data privacy means in the world of COVID-19 - how does Test and Trace impinge on your privacy and balance with public benefit; what does working from home do to corporate security and confidentiality?

How will Brexit and the recent court ruling (Schrems 2) on data transfers to 3rd countries affect what organisations operating in multiple geographies need to do in order to manage the compliance risk from data transfers?

We look back at how data privacy has evolved over this period and particularly how the supervisory authorities have been enforcing the regulations with look at a couple of recent cases and discuss if GDPR has made a difference to how organisations are processing personal data. Also how has the pandemic changed or reinforced our views on data privacy? This talk is intended to provoke discussion.
