Bill’s Approval Marks Progress Toward Safe Harbor Alternative

By | Monday November 30th, 2015

which would give foreigners data protection equal to that of US
citizens. The bill’s passage is a step toward enacting data protection

replacement for the Safe Harbor agreement. The European Court of Justice
recently invalidated the EU-US Safe Harbor agreement because it did not
provide adequate privacy protection for EU citizens. The bill now goes
to the Senate.
