A wide-ranging group of a dozen companies have formed the Global Data Alliance to put a greater focus on cross-border data flows. The alliance will advocate for policies that encourage the free flow of data across borders and push against rules that hinder the flow of data.
Members of the alliance, which was launched by BSA | The Software Alliance, include AT&T and Verizon, Mastercard and United Airlines.
BSA | The Software Alliance (www.bsa.org) is the leading advocate for the global software industry before governments and in the international marketplace. Its members are among the world’s most innovative companies, creating software solutions that help businesses of all sizes in every part of the economy to modernize and grow.
With headquarters in Washington, DC, and operations in more than 30 countries, BSA pioneers compliance programs that promote legal software use and advocates for public policies that foster technology innovation and drive growth in the digital economy.
