BSA Statement on SAFE Data Act
WASHINGTON – September 17, 2020 – BSA | The Software Alliance released the following statement on Senator Roger Wicker’s introduction of the SAFE Data Act.
“BSA applauds Senator Wicker for his important work toward ensuring that a federal privacy law gives consumers rights in their personal data and places obligations on businesses to handle that data in trusted and responsible ways,” said Craig Albright, Vice President, Legislative Strategy at BSA | The Software Alliance. “The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the many ways that data can help us as a society, including in combatting this virus – and it also shows the importance of finding the right set of privacy and security safeguards when using data. We are encouraged by the continued support for comprehensive federal privacy legislation and look forward to continuing to work with Senator Wicker and his colleagues on these important issues.”
