Stephenson Harwood has been involved in advising on key data protection issues emerging from coronavirus ("Covid-19") from the start of the pandemic. We have continued to advise on these challenges as restrictions, guidance and legislation have evolved.

Our presence in many of the highly affected regions has enabled our team to be at the forefront of the issues which, in turn, has allowed us to gain a thorough understanding of the specific challenges faced by our clients across the globe. 

Managing data protection and privacy risks while responding to the threat posed by Covid-19 and the ever-evolving regulatory landscape caused by Covid-19 is undoubtedly a challenge. However, organisations handling personal data should be reassured that data protection law will not prevent them from responding to the pandemic appropriately.
