Pandemic Surveillance: Privacy, Security, and Data Ethics

About the eBook

As the COVID-19 pandemic surged in 2020, questions of data privacy, cybersecurity, and ethics of the surveillance technologies centred an international conversation on the benefits and disadvantages of the appropriate uses and expansion of cyber surveillance and data tracking. This timely book examines and answers these important concerns.

Pandemic Surveillance frames and defines digital privacy and security in the context of emerging surveillance technologies, providing informed dialogue on international conversations regarding pandemic surveillance. The book examines the challenges of regulating pandemic surveillance technologies across diverse geographical settings, including Europe and Latin America, along with comparative analysis of social credit systems in China and the United States. Margaret Hu and her impressive selection of contributors explore the legal, scientific and ethical challenges in a world with a growing data surveillance architecture, providing policy recommendations and forward-looking solutions, including the importance of ethical frameworks, to minimise potential misuse and abuse of surveillance technologies.

Delivering a well-rounded examination of pandemic surveillance and data-tracking technologies, this book is a crucial read for researchers and scholars focused on information security and data privacy, including specialists in the area of cyber ethics and data ethics. Students and academics interested in health policy and bioethics will also benefit from the insights in this text.
