Much of the discussion about cloud services remains focused on the needs of less-mature organizations and on technical rather than business considerations. Debate concentrates on whether to move to the cloud, which workloads are best to “lift and shift” from a cost, security and compliance perspective or how to avoid supplier lock-in, currently one of the biggest concerns when moving to the cloud.

Think of the irony. Not too long ago, the cloud was seen as a risky place to store and manage enterprise data. Now, with cloud increasingly seen as the safest place to move data, too much data may be getting moved offsite.
Enterprise software’s days are numbered, and if you don’t adopt artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, your data center will be useless.
The CSA Code of Conduct for GDPR Compliance is designed to meet both actual, mandatory EU legal personal data protection requirements (i.e., Directive 95/46/EC and its implementations in the EU member states) and the forthcoming requirements of the GDPR.
