Now that many Americans are online constantly, Aaron Cooper, vice president of global policy at BSA | The Software Alliance, said he thinks even more pressure will be put on Congress to craft and enact federal privacy legislation, despite a bogged-down negotiation process among lawmakers.
But until that happens, Cooper said one thing companies can start thinking about — if they haven’t already — is how to standardize rights to data access given to all consumers.
“We need all companies to be acting responsibly and to be providing those same rights to consumers,” Cooper said. “Otherwise there is going to be consumer confusion,” which is “not good for anyone.”
