Ep. 131: How The Response to COVID19 Is Affecting Your Data Security
April 20, 2020
Hosted by George Rettas
Cyber Security Legal Expert and Senior Fellow with the Center of Intelligence and National Security at the University of Oklahoma, Adriana Sanford appears on Ep. #131 of TF7 Radio to unpack a variety of different concerns across the cyber security space as a result of the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Sanford talks about the current request to telecommunications carriers to provide users location data for pandemic research and what that means both from a legal perspective and a security perspective. Sanford also breaks down Uber's recent lawsuit against the city of Los Angeles regarding handing over the location and other data about their scooter rentals. And she also opines on topics everyone is asking about: can your COVID-19 disposition affect your work status, whether or not businesses can legally check your temperature without your consent, and whether or not they are required to notify you if they shared your location or medical data with a government agency.
