Europe: Future of Trust

Trust is a nebulous concept. It has traditionally been viewed through one of two lenses: either in a broad sense, relating to equally nebulous themes such as perception and loyalty; or in a narrow sense relating to specific technical approaches such as the Zero Trust security architecture or silicon trust modules in chip design. IDC's Europe: Future of Trust research theme aims to bring together the specific and the general in an end-to-end approach. It encompasses a suite of top level 'elements' such as risk, compliance, security and ethics that are important at the board level. But it also explores how these across both internal governance level and across the ecosystem through supply chain management. This research theme will also explore the technologies that underpin trust programs, as well as the business benefits that they can drive.
