Governments’ Handling of COVID App Data

I was able to contribute to this article from FST Media: Exposing the fault lines in governments’ handling of Covid app data. I talked about the need for citizens to have trust in the collection and use of data, lest lack of trust undermine the utility of the data.

If the risks aren’t properly managed, the end result is harm to citizens through the direct release of data or degraded performance of contact tracing and the impact on public health.
