BSA | The Software Alliance on Wednesday became the latest group to offer up a privacy framework, joining the likes of the Internet Association and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. The proposal calls for federal privacy legislation that would, among other provisions, require tech companies to be transparent about privacy practices; specify why they need certain information; offer their users informed privacy choices; and guarantee data quality.
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.
