Thomas Boué, policy director at the BSA | The Software Alliance, which represents tech companies such as Microsoft, Symantec and Workday, said companies could use technical measures, such as encryption, to safeguard data, or adopt organizational structures, including being transparent about the volume and nature of requests from government authorities when legally permitted.
He said technical measures such as encryption “may work in some cases, but not in others” and that there is no “silver bullet” to address data-transfer risks.
"There's no one size fits all,” he said. “It cannot be happening across the board. It's going to have to be for each transfer that the company is exporting and the company is importing. They will have to look at all these and what are the best safeguards possible.”
