Trust: A Perspective for European Security Practitioners

By: Dominic Trott, Duncan BrownVP of Enterprise Research Europe, Mark ChildResearch Manager, European Security


This IDC Perspective examines the Future of Trust from the perspective of European CISOs. Trust is a top priority for European enterprises from the CEO-level downward — particularly in terms of ensuring the success of DX initiatives, which are accelerated by the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This provides a unique opportunity for CISOs and security teams to demonstrate their importance not just as technology experts but as business leaders to support business outcomes that are critical for enterprises' survival given today's socioeconomic context. The challenge is that the focus of today's European trust programs is technical in nature. This report seeks to connect the technical underpinnings with business benefits that can support broader buy-in of trust to drive organizationwide cultural change.

"IDC research indicates that almost two-thirds of European organizations have prioritized trust to the extent that they have launched a digital trust program. However, it is a concern that the goals of these programs are so heavily dominated by technical ambitions. This points to a focus on meeting regulatory requirements around data privacy and security and a reaction to the impact of cloud migration and multicloud delivery models. However, enterprises must ensure that these technical ambitions represent just the early stages of broader trust programs. Unless they also address people and processes, European organizations risk missing the opportunity to drive broader cultural change. This report seeks to connect the technology pillars of trust with a set of target business benefits, acting as a 'blueprint' to inspire successful European trust programs," said Dominic Trott, research director, Security and Privacy, IDC Europe.
