Virginia senator urges U.S. leadership on data protection and privacy laws

Sen. Mark R. Warner, D-Va., shares the importance of ensuring the U.S. continues its leadership on data privacy and protection, at a Nov. 1 conference sponsored by the American Bar Association Standing Committee on Law and National Security

Warner, who is vice chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and co-chair of the Senate Cybersecurity Caucus, worries that America is ceding leadership to other countries in these critical areas. Reflecting on current U.S leadership, Warner says that Russia, China and other foreign adversaries would like nothing more than to see the United States continue to distance itself from democratic allies and surrender America’s leadership position in a rules-based international order that has kept the world peaceful and prosperous since World War II.
