Data Privacy

BSA members are committed to protecting the privacy and security of consumers’ data. BSA promotes a user-centric approach to privacy that provides consumers with control over their personal data while ensuring industry can continue delivering value to consumers by providing innovative products and services.

BSA supports a single, clear set of strong federal standards for consumer data privacy in the United States and encourages interoperability around the world. Privacy systems must support the free flow of data across international borders so cloud computing and other valuable data services can flourish.

With these considerations in mind, BSA has developed a Privacy Framework as a guide for policymakers as they seek to draft privacy legislation in the United States and BSA Global Privacy Best Practices to encourage high-level standards around the world.

BSA also supports efforts to ensure that law enforcement authorities can access stored content, but only pursuant to a process that has sufficient privacy and due process protections.

BSA supports modernizing data policies so they are clear, effective, and predictable for individuals, businesses, and governments.
