As the world scrambled to deal with covid this time last year, we saw a glut of new data being collected in the name of pandemic control.

As vaccine rollouts gather pace across the region, and leaders cautiously plan for a mass return-to-work, businesses are faced with the prospect that many of the challenges they considered ‘unique’ a year ago are nowhere to stay. High on this list is the challenge of managing personal data in a ‘track and trace’ world.

Join us for a look at how different parts of the region are addressing this challenge and a discussion on how to ensure businesses are covid data compliant in 2021 and beyond.
