GOVIS Lunchtime Forum - Reflecting on COVID-19 #2 - The Covid Tracer App

Wed, 16th June 2021, 12:30-1:30pm, Meeting rooms G.01 and ONLINE, MBIE Head Office, 15 Stout St, Wellington

#2 in a series of forums reflecting on the impact of COVID-19 on government information and technology.

The COVID-19 pandemic has been one of the most significant events to affect New Zealand in recent history. All of us have been affected in some way.

This forum looks at the Ministry of Health's Covid Tracer App. Merrin Macleod and Patrick Hindmarsh from the team involved with developing the app will be presenting. They will talk about Privacy by Design in the app and lessons learned about the public perception of privacy and data handling.

Merrin and Patrick have kindly made their slides available - you can access these here.

This will be a hybrid event. You can come in person or join online via MS Teams. Note that in-person spaces are limited and people who work for GOVIS member agencies will be given priority.

A light lunch will be provided for in person attendees.
