About the Event

Public health authorities are looking to use cell phone data to track both the spread of the COVID-19 virus and people’s social distancing practices. These and other technological responses promise important public health benefits. But they can also seriously endanger our privacy. What is the right balance between public health and privacy, and how can we achieve it?

Join us as a panel of experts discusses how technology is being used to battle COVID-19, the privacy threats that this creates, and how society can best safeguard our privacy – and our health – during the pandemic.
