*Survey last updated April 30, 2020*

Our latest edition, spanning 39 jurisdictions, answers five common data privacy and security questions employers may have in light of COVID-19, especially as lockdowns are slowly being eased in some countries and employers prepare to re-open workplaces.

As the world grapples with the COVID-19 pandemic and its profound impact across regions and industries, many companies are facing difficult business and legal challenges and are required to make some urgent decisions in order to keep their workforce safe and ensure business continuity. Data plays a crucial role in containing the spread of the virus but not every data processing can be justified on that basis. A balance must be found between protecting public health and personal privacy .

Baker McKenzie is pleased to provide you with a guide designed to help employers assess whether or not certain data processing they may consider in light of COVID-19 is compliant with data privacy regulation.
