Personal data in the ERA of COVID-19

Coronavirus continues to make significant adjustments to our life. 

Interaction patterns are rapidly changing resulting in new risks. We are on the verge of large changes in our personal data.

Moore ST are pleased to introduce you the publication, in which we have examined some of the modifications and trends of the last few weeks in Russia and around the world regarding personal data protection and liability for dissemination of false information about COVID-19. These will help to be familiar with what is expected in the nearest future: 

  • The rules of processing of data concerning health status are being simplified in Russia 

  • The European authorities consider the processing of data about health status  in connection with the coronavirus to be of public interest

  • There will be no fines in the UK for lowering the standards of data processing

  • Using online platforms for video and audio conferencing at work and the risks associated with them. Worldwide practice.

  • Responsibility for spreading fake news about the coronavirus is being tightened.
