Episode 21: Samm Sacks


This week’s episode of Ta for Ta features Samm Sacks, a Cybersecurity Policy and China Digital Economy Fellow at New America, where her research focuses on emerging information and communication technology policies, especially as they relate to China. Samm leads New America’s DigiChina Data Governance Project, which produces analysis of developments related to data privacy and security, artificial intelligence, and data governance. In this episode, Samm reflects on her (sometimes indirect) career path and strategies for thriving in a traditionally male-dominated industry. Samm also recounts her experiences offering testimony on data governance issues before the U.S. Congress, and her concerns about the future of U.S.-China relations in this complex and constantly evolving field.
