Data Policy with Samm Sacks


Samm Sacks

Senior Fellow, Technology Policy, Center for Strategic and International Studies @CSIS


Samm Sacks, Senior Fellow at CSIS, is perhaps America’s leading expert on Chinese data privacy policy. Yes, you heard that right, the world’s most advanced surveillance state has a corporate data privacy policy even more stringent than what’s currently on America’s books. In this episode, we compare China’s new law to the GDPR, what privacy policy means for Chinese tech firms with international ambitions, and the implications of the latest Facebook scandal involving Huawei.
