The Federal Trade Commission and regulators in other countries have issued guidance regarding security practices for the home as most employees work from home instead of the office. This is especially difficult in regulated industries that process credit card, health information or other regulated data.
We have summarized below key takeaways of the regulatory guidance on remote working to minimize risks to data security. We have also summarized the guidance from more than 60 U.S. and global data protection authorities and governmental agencies on health data collection, COVID-19 diagnosis disclosure, and return-to-work approaches here.
Our team is assisting many clients in addressing challenging legal, operational and compliance challenges related to COVID-19. If you would like to discuss those that you are facing, please contact us:
