Ensure Your Pandemic Response Plan Is Privacy-Proof

Don’t panic – prepare today’s pandemic response plan to accommodate tomorrow’s privacy implications.

  • COVID-19 has thrown organizations globally into a panicked frenzy as they attempt to adopt and scale operations to align with government recommendations and keep employees safe.
  • Enforced data privacy best practices may contradict procedures that are implemented in the best interest of employees’ safety.
  • Processes adapted as a part of crisis response and management may not always align with privacy regulations and laws (GDPR, CCPA, HIPAA).

Our Advice

Critical Insight

  • An effective pandemic plan will be privacy-proof in order to support the future strategic direction of the organization. Don’t throw your privacy best practices out the window; be adaptable and create a repeatable process that is well-documented and well-circulated.

Impact and Result
