From Connected Commercial Council:

The Connected Commerce Council was pleased to host The Progressive Policy Institute (PPI), R Street Institute and the Texas Association of Business for a webinar to discuss the importance of technology platforms and digital tools for empowering Texas businesses, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The discussion also covered pursuits by elected officials in Washington, DC, and across the country, to stifle the technology sector and prevent the industry from providing these crucial services.

The conversation covered the current privacy landscape, the need for clear privacy legislation and enforcement, what consumers and corporate leaders seek from legislation, and the current legislative environment surrounding tech in Congress.

The significance of digital tools amidst the pandemic has been underscored by a recent study showing that one in three small business owners claim that they would have had to close all or part of their business without digital tools.
