The National Telecommunications and Information Administration is examining how commercial collection and use of personal information can lead to discrimination.
“The NTIA intends to make a factual basis that policymakers can build on,” said Kate Goodloe, senior policy director for BSA | The Software Alliance, a trade association. Goodloe added that she hopes the advisory agency effort signals that the Biden administration will push for comprehensive privacy legislation, which the software group supports.

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.
