Apple and Google have an ambitious plan to help officials track coronavirus â here’s what needs to happen now
Digital contact tracing is not a magic bullet, and there are a lot of steps that still need to happen before digital contact tracing apps like those enabled by Google and Apple start slowing the spread of the coronavirus around the world.
According, Myke Lyons, CISO at Collibra, the Data Intelligence company: “This is a massive opportunity for Google and Apple to build trust with consumers. One of the biggest challenges in dealing with data privacy around contact tracing will be understanding where all the data is and knowing the systems that house it. There is a lot of misinformation and distrust around data, and consumers need to know how their data is being used, where it came from, how it is being secured, and what will happen once the data is no longer needed.”
