Senate Commerce Chairman Eyes Data Privacy Bill This Year
Roll Call, February 28, 2019

Victoria Espinel, president and CEO of The Software Alliance, said a federal bill also ought to make a distinction between companies that control data and those that process data. A bill that doesn’t draw a distinction between the two types of companies could undermine consumers’ privacy because controllers of data make decisions on how data is collected and have the primary responsibility for privacy, while processors don’t have all of a person’s information in their possession, Espinel said.
