Have our Privacy Gains Gone?

Kayva Pearlman, XR Safety Initiative’s Founder and CEO, joins our host, Ashwin Krishnan, on this podcast to share her concern that we may be losing our hard-won data privacy protection. We are currently seeing privacy regulations relaxed. While we mustn’t let data privacy impede the fight against COVID-19, we must be cognizant of the ramifications. Kavya explains, “after this passes, the data destruction clause has to be there.”

For small to medium businesses or small teams working in response to COVID-19 who lack privacy protection resources, XRSI are offering free privacy reviews. Reach out to them via their website.
