In a landmark ruling today the Court of Justice of the European Union found that the current 'Safe Harbor' agreement (which underpins the vast majority of the transfer of data from the EU to the US) is invalid. This ruling strikes an important blow for data protection for EU citizens.
Safe Harbor has long been used by large corporations to justify transferring data out of UK and EU datacentres, into US based locations. By using "Safe Harbor", companies agree to be bound by the same restrictions as they have in the US, despite not being explicitly required to do so by US law.
