ABPICast – Data Privacy x COVID-19

Lawyer Danilo Doneda, professor at the Brazilian Institute of Public Law – IDP and member of the National Council for Data Protection and Privacy in the House of Representatives, advocated at ABPI Cast that, in the absence of legislation in force, the use of personal data in the fight against the coronavirus must be done with total transparency and based on a strategy that defines how the data will be treated. “Eventually, one should think about an emergency data protection system and the anticipation of a minimum regulatory framework”, said Doneda, in an interview with the participation of Tatiana Campello, member of ABPI’s Executive Board.

With the pandemic, the entry into force of the General Data Protection Law (LGPD No. 13,709/2018), initially scheduled for August 15th this year, was extended by the Federal Senate to January 1st, 2021.
