Governments around the world are utilising contact tracing apps to promote social and economic recovery by easing COVID-19 restrictions while keeping communities safe.
Whether enough people will download and use these apps in order for them to be effective remains to be seen, and provides an insight into the role of technology, law and communications in building public confidence to achieve policy outcomes.

What are the prevailing privacy expectations? Is privacy by design enough?
Does law compete or complement? What oversight is needed? Are we getting the balance right?
Moderated by Margie Tannock, Partner, Squire Patton Boggs.
