BSA | The Software Alliance Policy Director Henry Young is quoted as one of the two technology industry lobby group leaders that states government agencies must have access to private sector digital identity tools to help combat identity theft.
Commenting on the letter, BSA Policy Director Henry Young said: “BSA joined association partners in sending this letter because it advocates for a technology-neutral approach. The US government should not select either a specific solution developed by industry or one the government develops itself because it inhibits innovative approaches to cybersecurity, which are needed in a constantly-evolving cyberthreat environment.”
