Late this week I flew to Scottsdale, Arizona to participate in another very solid CDM Media CIO event, entitled the “CIO Cloud Summit.” While I will draft a separate research communication summarizing some of the key takeaways from this event, I had a interesting side conservation with one of the delegates – Drew Simonis (Information Security Officer at Willis Holdings – one of the largest insurance brokers globally) – who was kind enough to share some links to a leaked set of draft EU documents that will eventually help shape where EU data privacy law will go over the next three years, as the EU puts in place a new set of regulations to standardize what is today a wide range (and often chaotic set) of country-specific policies and practices.

Recently we published a premium research deliverable in our CRS-Base subscription service (“A Brief Look at Data Privacy Concerns and Enterprise Cloud Migration,” – if not a Saugatuck subscriber, click here to purchase and download) that details some of the issues. This was a follow-up to a business trip to Germany that I took in late October, where I had the opportunity to meet with a number of IT leaders in the metro Frankfurt area, including the CIO of R+V Versicherungen (huge Insurance provider), the CTO of HZD (service provider for State of Hessen), and a VP and CIO at Deutsche Bank AG (retail division) – as well as senior business and technology leaders at T-Systems and Software AG.
