Consumer Privacy and Data Analytics
The Consumer Privacy and Data Analytics Subcommittee is pleased to report that its proposal to the present at the annual ABA Business Law Section conference has not only been approved, but it will be featured as a showcase session. The title of the session is “Privacy Twilight Zone: Returning to Work in the Age of Covid-19.” In this session, panelists will share their insights on privacy related issues arising from the reintroduction of the workforce back into the workplace under new screening technologies related to social distancing surveillance and the bulk collection of COVID-19 data. Distinctions between government entity and the private sector requirements will be drawn, followed by legal issues arising from what type of data will be collected, where, how, and most importantly what happens to it in the age of artificial intelligence where even so-called anonymized data could potentially lead to identification of an individual. The expert team of panelists will share their insights on how these issues are being addressed within their respective specialties: government, medium and large multi-national corporations. Finally, the panel will present the results of a Covid-19 work group’s Play Book consisting of participants from Global 1000 companies.
We are delighted to include in our panel Microsoft’s Senior Attorney for Employment Law, Brian Flock, out of Seattle. Mr. Flock will be joined by John Isaza and Seaton Daly III. John Rothchild, of Wayne State University, will be moderating the panel. Mr. Daly currently works out of Seattle and Mr. Isaza out of Boston.
