PLDO Partner Brian J. Lamoureux to be a Featured Speaker on “Data Privacy Rights for the Greater Good” Webinar

Rhode Island – June 17, 2020 – Pannone Lopes Devereaux & O’Gara LLC (PLDO) Partner Brian J. Lamoureux, a prominent business and employment lawyer and leading voice on social and digital media law, will be a featured speaker during a webinar hosted by Compass IT Compliance, entitled “Data Privacy Rights for the Greater Good,” on Wednesday, July 8, 2020 at 1 p.m. (EST). Attorney Lamoureux will be joined by Derek Boczenowski, Compass’ VP of IT Audit, to discuss the use of tracking methods and measures deployed in the workplace as a result of the COVID-19 crisis and the potential for “mission creep” over time that may further erode our privacy rights under the guise of the “greater good.”

Panelists will address the huge volume of data collection in the “new normal” and its associated risks, as well as the implications of navigating unchartered waters while complying with the myriad of evolving employment laws and regulations. They will also discuss the impact of new products and emerging uses of tracking applications that go beyond the government’s original intent and purpose of safeguarding the public’s health and well-being during the pandemic.

“I am looking forward to discussing these important policy topics,” said Attorney Lamoureux. “As we rapidly begin to use tracking apps and technology to manage the pandemic, it is important to pause and reflect on what impact these technologies will have in the long run in the workplace and in our lives. Although it’s too soon to know the full scope of this impact, it’s never too late to have this conversation.”
