Privacy Governance in the Time of Pandemic

By: Sonny Zulhuda

How does the Pandemic bring about the challenges to privacy and data protection? Is there anything we should be worried about? The isolation, restricted movement, disease control measures, tracking apps, contact tracing, work-from-home, online learning… and the list goes on. All these dots when connect to each other will reveal that privacy concern is real and its protection can be a critical game-changer. Just in time to test the efficiency of the Personal Data Protection law.

This is the gist of my keynote presented in the Sixth International Conference on Internet Applications, Protocols and Services (NETAPPS2020) on this Wednesday. This International Conference is held by the Computing School of the Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM). The Slides of my presentation can be downloaded here. And the presentation itself can be watched from their FB Live Page.

As their event website pronounces, the main goal of this conference is to serve as an affordable platform to promote greater engagement of network researchers from around the globe, notably from the ASEAN and the Asia Pacific region, in the Internet research activities principally on those related to the work of Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF). A very interesting and dynamic area. Well done.

And Thank You organisers, for having me!
