Virtual Seminar: Cross-Border Data Flows—Enabling Local Economies and Driving E-Commerce
June 17, 2020
Data flows are critical in today’s connected economy, particularly as governments, businesses, and communities respond to the widespread impacts of COVID-19. Companies of all sizes in every sector are better able to offer products and services, manage supply chains, reach new markets, create jobs, and invest locally when they have access to data across borders and cloud-based technology.
BSA and the Global Data Alliance host this virtual seminar, looking at the ways in which cross-border data flows enable local economic growth and drive e-commerce in a rapidly evolving environment. Panelists from a cross-industry coalition of companies that are committed to high standards of data responsibility discuss the importance of cross-border data flows to their operations and how data barriers affect their business in various regions across the globe.
