From OECD and GPA:

More than one year since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, governments continue to take drastic measures to curb the spread of the virus. The use of data, and in some cases personal data, have been central to some of these measures, but have raised a number of privacy and data governance concerns. As a result of the pandemic unprecedented volumes of personal data have been collected, processed, stored and shared, and as governments plan their next steps moving forward with vaccination programmes and plans for the road to recovery, it is crucial that they reflect on some of the lessons learned. 

21 June 2021, Paris, France & Virtual
