In this episode, I talk with Samm Sacks. She is a Cybersecurity Policy and China Digital Economy Fellow at New America. Her research focuses on emerging information and communication technology (ICT) policies globally, particularly in China. She has worked on Chinese technology policy issues for over a decade, both with the U.S. government and in the private sector.

  4. Are US tech firms helping the Chinese government?
  5. The right approach for the US dealing with China tech/data issues
  6. US companies need to manage US data better too
  7. EU is creating global standards
  8. EU is pushing back on US accessing European data
