BSA Statement on the Washington Privacy Act

WASHINGTON – February 14, 2020 – BSA | The Software Alliance offered the following statement on today’s Senate passage of the Washington Privacy Act.

We look forward to continuing the valuable conversation with policymakers to create a consistent privacy standard that gives consumers confidence in how their data is used and businesses clarity in their obligations to keep data private and secure.”
