Privacy, like everything else in 2020, was dominated by the covid-19 pandemic. Employers and governments have been required to consider privacy in adjusting workplace practices to account for who has fever and other symptoms, who has travelled where, who has come into contact with whom and what community members have tested positive or been exposed. As a result of all this need for tracking and tracing, governments and citizens alike have recognised the inevitable trade-offs between exclusive focus on privacy versus exclusive focus on public health and safety.
The 2020 edition reviews privacy laws of 26 countries, plus global, EU, and APEC overviews written by local practitioners.
