One thing that continues to surprise me is the misinformation around the topic of data privacy and the legal requirements. Especially around hot topics such as the Cloud Act. I’m not an attorney, but I give quite a few presentations and I make it habit to ask who has read the swiss data privacy act or who knows what ISO 27001 governs. I would say the hands raised to these questions is definitely below 10% but everyone seems to have strong opinion about it.
