Microsoft, AWS and Adobe Align to Lobby Against Data Localisation in India — But the Issue Goes Beyond Privacy

Business Insider India, January 23, 2020

By Prabhjote Gill

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.
