And what exactly is at stake when it comes to data collection, especially by foreign companies? Dia Rekhi in conversation with Glenn S. Gerstell - Former General Counsel of the National Security Agency, and Kanishk Gaur, Cyber Security Expert and Founder - India Future Foundation in the latest episode of The Morning Brief podcast.
