Conversations with Experts: Privacy and Technology in a Post-Pandemic World

2021

In dealing with the pandemic over the past year, CAAs have discovered resourceful and creative ways to connect with their communities via their websites, social media, videoconferencing software, and other forms of remote interaction and outreach. While these measures have helped to safely maintain CAAs’ relationships with their communities and other external parties, they have also created new relationships between CAAs and other parties’ private data and information. Eleanor Evans is counsel in the Nonprofit Representation, Government and Administrative Law, and Business Law groups at Hemenway & Barnes LLP. As the former Executive Director and General Counsel of CAPLAW, she has years of experience advising CAAs on the legal requirements related to their role as human services providers. Attendees joined this session to ask her about best practices for collecting, storing, and disseminating private data gathered online from clients and other external parties.

Held on: April 29, 2021
