Solvency II and Data Quality

OCDQ Radio is a vendor-neutral podcast about data quality and its related disciplines, produced and hosted by Jim Harris.

During this episode, Ken O’Connor and I discuss the Solvency II standards for data quality, and how its European insurance regulatory requirement of “complete, appropriate, and accurate” data represents common sense standards for all businesses.

Ken O’Connor is an independent data consultant with over 30 years of hands-on experience in the field, specializing in helping organizations meet the data quality management challenges presented by data-intensive programs such as data conversions, data migrations, data population, and regulatory compliance such as Solvency II, Basel II / III, Anti-Money Laundering, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA), and the Dodd–Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Ken O’Connor also provides practical data quality and data governance advice on his popular blog at:
