IDC Security Forum From Secure to Trusted - A Journey to DX Leadership

DIGITAL Event | May 26, 2021


This new decade has already provided many lessons. One is that the mantra “never let a good crisis go to waste” could have been written for the cybercriminal fraternity.

Another is that the concept of digital trust is rapidly becoming a business imperative in the digital era.

At the heart of this all, as always, is security: the critical barrier between data integrity and compromise; and a fundamental building block for digital trust.

But trust encompasses so much more.

  • From privacy and compliance to sustainability
  • From ecommerce to trusted ecosystems and
  • From ethics and transparency to brand reputation and loyalty

Engendering digital trust is a business imperative, but it requires leadership and governance from board level to ensure that it becomes part of the very fabric of the business.​

From Secure to Trusted: A Journey to Digital Leadership

Mark Child

Research Manager, European Security, IDC CEMA

The past year has been characterized by dramatic transformation and a shift of engagement models from physical to digital. Relationships in the digital sphere need to be underpinned by trust – which can take a long time to accrue yet be easily lost. What drives trust between an organization and its employees, its partners, and its customers? Security is a core pillar, aligned with risk. Privacy and compliance are also of paramount importance. But ethics and sustainability or corporate social responsibility are also on the radar. To become a trusted digital business requires focus on multiple disciplines; however, without trust those fundamental business relationships will not thrive.
