Mandatory Sharing of Non-Personal Data Will Undermine Innovation: BSA on Non-Personal Data Report

The Non-Personal Data Governance Framework‘s recommendation for a new law, new regulator and a compulsory data sharing architecture is “premature” and has “little global precedent for the regulation of NPD [non-personal data]”, BSA, the software alliance, wrote in its submission to the committee of experts.
BSA, whose members include Cisco, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft, and Salesforce, said that mandatory obligations are counterproductive for data processors, such as enterprise software and cloud service providers, as they handle data only on behalf of their clients, and “may be prohibited from accessing that data except to carry out their customers’ instructions”.
