Months-long bipartisan negotiations over a federal privacy bill have hit a rough patch in the Senate, with Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) releasing his own measure after disagreements with Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) over whether to allow individuals to sue over privacy violations.
BSA | The Software Alliance, which represents companies like IBM and Salesforce, said they were glad Moran’s bill distinguishes between businesses that control data and those that process data on behalf of others. “This distinction is key to safeguarding consumer privacy without creating new security risks,” Craig Albright, BSA’s vice president of legislative strategy, said in a statement.
