Businesses and corporate legal departments may not have to dramatically inflate their privacy spend in order to account for the impact that COVID-19 has had on employee data, but chances are businesses won’t be able to reallocate that money to help soften the blow of diminished revenues either.

But how organizations may or may not have to adjust that spending to address privacy challenges emerging around remote working and employee health information is unclear.
