How COVID-19 Is Set To Reshape Federal Privacy Law Debate
Law360, April 27, 2020
While the coronavirus pandemic has derailed most nonurgent lawmaking efforts, pressure continues to mount for Congress to enact uniform privacy legislation that factors in the growing concerns over moves by companies such as Apple and Google to harness the troves of personal information they hold to track the virus and contain its spread.
"The pandemic really accelerates a lot of the ongoing discussions on privacy legislation because it highlights a concrete example of not only the need to use data in important ways, but also the importance of getting it right when it comes to the type of privacy and security safeguards that need to be placed on different uses of data," said Kate Goodloe, director of policy at tech industry group BSA: The Software Alliance.
