Content, Privacy & Data Regulation
Protecting consumer privacy without inhibiting developers’ ability to innovate.
Consumer protection, specifically related to digital privacy and data regulation, continues to be a focus of policymakers worldwide. But we believe good intentions can have unexpected results. Unnecessarily burdensome standards for securing online communications and tracking confidentiality can have a horrendous impact on small businesses and software developers. We work with the tech industry and lawmakers to help them better understand this complex topic as they write new regulation.
