Two US-based associations representing software and telecommunications providers asked the Brazilian government for interim guidance on international data transfers before a newly formed enforcement agency issues new protocols to protect personal data next year.
The Software Alliance, also known as BSA, and the Global Data Alliance, which includes BSA members, said in a Wednesday letter to Brazilian government officials that their members, including Microsoft, AT&T, Pfizer and United Airlines, need legal certainty that their current data transfer practices will be permitted when they are based on internationally accepted standards and consistent with the overall objectives of Brazil's Personal Data Protection Law.
"Data transfers enable the digital tools and insights that are critical to enabling entrepreneurs and companies of all sizes, in every country, to create new kinds of jobs, boost efficiency, drive quality, and improve output," the groups said in a letter addressed to presidential Chief of Staff Walter Souza Braga Netto and Economic Minister Paulo Roberto Nunes Guedes.”
