Gartner Data Ethic and COVID-19: Making the Right Decisions for Data Collection, Use and Sharing, Lydia Clougherty Jones, Jim Hare, Frank Buytendijk, 17 April 2020



Ethics are a set of moral principles that govern
behaviour. With the many Covid-19 track and trace
apps currently being generated, developers need

collection, use and sharing of data, guided by
moral reasoning to do the right thing at the right
time and for the right reasons.”
