This IDC Perspective discusses the future of trust and provides the definition of trust. Trust enables decisions to be made between two or more entities that reflects a level of confidence both in terms of quantifiable risk and subjective reputation that that enable a transaction to occur for mutual benefit. The discussion of trust introduces a new vocabulary such as acceptable uncertainty and transparency at scale. Trust is an up-leveling of the security conversation to include attributes such as risk, compliance, privacy, social responsibility, and even business ethics These elements transform the conversation from what "must" a company do to prevent negative outcomes to what "should" a company do. Thus traditional approaches to security, risk, compliance, and privacy are facing challenges in both scope and scale.
"Trust is an up-leveling of the security conversation to include attributes such as risk, compliance, privacy, and even business ethics as digital transformation has magnified organization threat vector. However, trust is more than just about mitigating harm but also maximizing return, creating a differentiated impact on revenue, expenses, and shareholder value," Frank Dickson, program vice president, IDC's Security and Trust.
