What are the advantages to giving individuals greater access to and control over their personal data? What are the prospects for reaching an international accord on data use and protection of individual rights? This episode features a discussion with Kabir Kumar, a Director at Flourish Ventures, an investment fund with a focus on promoting financial inclusion, both in the U.S. and globally. Kumar discusses the privacy and data control policies that he is advocating with the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, the vacuum created by the lack of U.S. leadership in data regulation, and how India – a leading IT and software provider – may help shape policy in this area.
