Thanks to Dustin and Constantine for pinch-hitting for me last week. The family and I had a lovely time vacationing at Mont Tremblant.

Have you been on any kind of summer vacation this year? I have to admit, it’s a bit weird. Masks are everywhere (make sure to get one that allows you to breathe!), hand sanitizer is in abundance, they use these neat little guns to take your temperature, you get asked a million questions and cleaning stations are all over the place. Sounds fun and relaxing, eh?

Since March, it has definitely been anything but normal. That being said, I’m lucky to have known a number of companies that have pivoted and done good things to help fight the pandemic. Whether it be a portable ultrasound device that can check your lungs or a mobile pre-check device that can screen for COVID-19, there are plenty of people out there trying to do good things.

And, I say I’m lucky because the folks I’ve been dealing with all recognize the need to do privacy properly. Notwithstanding the lightning speed at which they are advancing their solutions, they are taking the time to build privacy into the process. That fits well with my philosophy. I’ve never thought that privacy is a roadblock to doing good things. It’s a way of doing good things better.

Another group that thinks this way is PrivacyWorks Consulting over on the West Coast. They offer great privacy training classes, and they aren’t letting the pandemic slow them down. Check them out because, after all, privacy is something that we need to keep top of mind while we get through this.

August is around the corner, folks, so do make sure you take in some of that summer sun and relax a bit, whether you take time at home or venture out with your bubble — just a bit.
