Digital trust strategies are neglected
New research from international IT governance professional association ISACA revealed that while most organizations see digital trust as key to business success, digital trust strategies are being neglected in a significant number of companies. The 2023 State of Digital Trust report surveyed more than 8,000 digital trust professionals. It found that companies with high levels of digital trust are more likely to have a positive reputation (70%), experience fewer privacy breaches (57%), experience fewer cyber security incidents (55%) and have more reliable data on which to make decisions and have stronger customer loyalty (51%).
However, it also found a clear disparity between thinking and action when it comes to digital trust, with only 7% of European business and IT professionals fully confident in their organisation’s digital trustworthiness. Thirty-three percent do not measure their digital trust practices at all. Only a quarter (27%) of organizations offer any kind of digital trust training to staff, and 41% have no dedicated digital trust staff role and are unlikely to in the next five years , according to the report. Lack of leadership buy-in and lack of alignment between digital trust and business goals were cited as blockers to progress, as was lack of budget. Similar sentiments were found regarding the provision of digital trust training: 49% of respondents identified a lack of staff skills and training as a barrier to achieving high levels of digital trust.
