India’s new data laws are asking companies to localize their data. Not just sensitive data – like names, numbers, and addresses – but also non-sensitive data. BSA, the Software Alliance, which includes tech giants like Microsoft, Amazon Web Services, Intel, and Adobe among others, has launched an international coalition to advocate for the ability to move data across borders. “The trusted, seamless movement of information across borders drives the global economy forward. It supports innovation and job creation,” said Victoria Espinel, president and CEO of BSA.
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.
