“USCIB United States Council for Bu: business urges policymakers to avoid trade-distorting date privacy measures”, 4-Traders quotes Ottawa lawyer Clifford Sosnow in an article about the paper released by the Business and Industry Advisory Committee, which found that restrictions to cross-border data transfers would reduce global trade.


“Governments must avoid restricting trade through data localization measures,” said Clifford Sosnow, chair of the BIAC Trade Committee and partner with the Canadian law firm Fasken Martineau LLP. “Considering the importance of this issue for competitive markets, this paper offers recommendations to address the impact of data localization and at the same time deal with privacy and security concerns.”
