Can someone please explain to me in plain English what "Safe Harbor" is? I ran across a DoD ( department of defense)article about it but I didnt really understand it very well. From what I gathered the US and the EU have 2 seperate standards for cyber security so this safe harbor thing was like a bridge between the two? I guess? anyway if you have thoughts on this fire away.

It has to do with personal data and privacy protection. Apparently the US and the EU maintain different standards, the EU's being a bit tighter. The biggest differences from what I can tell is that Europeans have more control over their personal information, even after it has been collected by companies.
