EC Ruling Invalidates Safe Harbor - Now What?
John Rostern, VP, Technology Advisory and Assessment Services

Data Protection Commissioner. In the ruling the court said that the existing U.S.-EU Safe Harbor agreement, overseen by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC), is flawed in that it allows the U.S. government access to online information related to citizens of the European Union (EU).
