Under Biden, Software Group Expects Harmonization With European Allies Over Privacy and China Policies

Inside Cybersecurity, November 10, 2020

By Sara Friedman

BSA | The Software Alliance is advocating for a renewed focus on international diplomacy during President-elect Joseph Biden’s first term and increased engagement with European partners to reach new agreements on privacy protection.

“There is a lot of conflict in the US-Europe relationship right now on trade, data flows, taxes, privacy, and the US and Europe have largely shared values,” Craig Albright, vice president of legislative strategy at BSA | The Software Alliance, told Inside Cybersecurity. “Taking away some of that conflict by being able to resolve issues and finding additional areas of collaboration is going to be a priority for the Biden administration.”

BSA wants to see a new agreement on international data transfers that will address a European Union Court of Justice ruling from July that found the US-EU Privacy Shield governing data transfers was inadequate to protect the privacy of EU citizens.
