Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) is renewing calls for passing the Judicial Redress Act, The Hill reports. The bill, upon which the EU-U.S. Umbrella Agreement is partially predicated, would extend some data privacy rights to European citizens in the U.S. “In support of the critical, collaborative relationship that the U.S. has with the EU, it is more important than ever that Congress pass the Judicial Redress Act into law so that we can begin to put back together these U.S.-EU data-sharing protocols,” said Murphy, who co-sponsors the bill. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT), also a co-sponsor, said, “Unless the U.S. and EU resolve this matter promptly, the global economy will be deprived of the benefits of data services.” Meanwhile, Salesforce has published an FAQ to help address questions and concerns related to Safe Harbor’s invalidation.
