European Commission leadership late Wednesday suffered the "slings and arrows" of a European Parliament unhappy with the institution's handling of the now-invalidated Safe Harbor agreement, Sam Pfeifle reports for The Privacy Advisor. Parliament’s LIBE Committee also met this week and asked the Commission why Safe Harbor lasted 15 years. Meanwhile, Georgia Institute of Technology Prof. Peter Swire, CIPP/US, writes for Privacy Perspectives on the legal paths to move forward, and Denis Kelleher suggests that UK Information Commissioner Christopher Graham’s advice not to panic over Safe Harbor is the right advice for now. And in an interview with viEUws, European Data Protection Supervisor Giovanni Buttarelli shares "lessons to be drawn from the ruling, the impact of the decision on EU citizens as well as the efficacy of new instruments aimed at ensuring a high level of data protection."
