Standing for Privacy in the Face of Crisis
The past few months have taught us that COVID-19 does not discriminate as every industry, individual, and institution has been deeply impacted by the pandemic’s negative repercussions. To say that we are all eager for life to go back to normal would be an understatement.
As the fight against COVID-19 continues, it seems like new solutions are presented daily as leaders across all industries are racing to stop the spread of the virus. We appreciate everyone’s efforts in coming together for the greater good. However, in the speed to find a solution, privacy protections are put at risk. If left unaddressed, there could be severe long term consequences as civil liberties are compromised.
At Banjo, we have worked to create our Live Ground Truth platform to support those fighting COVID-19. We’re leveraging our technology to help stop the virus spread and bring back some sense of normalcy to our country. We understand that, in using technology to create solutions, it is more important now than ever to protect user privacy and defend civil liberties.
To read our stance on privacy protection in the face of COVID-19, here is an article written by Banjo’s CEO and founder, Damien Patton.
We hope to begin a dialogue that COVID-19 solutions and privacy protection are not mutually exclusive. In fact they can, and should, go hand-in-hand.
