BSA | The Software Alliance signs a letter with nearly three dozen other to ask G-7 countries to throw their support behind policies that allow for the unrestricted movement of data across borders.
“Without a shared commitment to permit the cross-border exchange of information, our collective ability to protect ourselves from a wide array of environmental, economic, health, safety, and security threats will be greatly diminished,” the groups wrote in a statement released today.
The associations signed onto the statement span the G-7 economies and beyond, including BSA | The Software Alliance, U.S. Chamber of Commerce, National Foreign Trade Council, Canadian Chamber of Commerce, Australian Services Roundtable and Japan Information Technology Services Industry Association.
