The new date for this webinar is Monday, 15th June 2020 from 2-4pm.
The Covid 19 pandemic has forced us to change the way we work and the way we deliver services. Whilst the use of digital and online tools has greatly assisted us to continue providing services we need to be mindful of the data protection implications of working from home and possibly using personal devices to a greater extent than we usually do. In addition, we are possibly recording and using information in new ways. The need to share sensitive information about people’s health status has never been more important both in terms of those using our services as well as those delivering services. This webinar provides an opportunity to consider various aspects of our response to Covid 19 from the point of view of data protection.
Alastair McKendrick, Partner at TC Young solicitors will present the following topics and respond to questions:
- A recap on lawful bases for recording and sharing personal / sensitive information and implications of Covid 19
- Response from ICO to the Covid 19 pandemic
- Any particular sensitivities about recording Covid 19 status
- Home working during the pandemic: using personal devices or software; accessing work servers or software; good practice for information sharing within orgs; implications of working from home in terms of sharing space with others outside of the organisation.
- Coming out of home working and moving away from using personal devices
- Use of video conferencing to support people: advising how it can be used, how to mitigate against risk and advising about situations when it might or might not be appropriate
