Microsoft reflects on the EU-U.S. Safe Harbor collapse on the decision taken on October 6.
Microsoft's Brad Smith - President and Chief Legal Office explains about the decision taken, and where it may lead every business that thought it had an effective model for data transmission and storage.

In practical terms, these revelations mean that European policymakers now need to assess anew whether European citizens continue to have privacy protection that is “essentially equivalent” to the rights that apply at home after their personal information crosses the Atlantic. If they do not, then the Safe Harbor put together at the turn of the century cannot be resuscitated without new changes. What this really means, as is now clear to officials on both sides of the Atlantic, is that the old harbor needs to be replaced by something better.
