Nieuwe ISACA-gids schetst de belangrijkste componenten van de implementatie van Digital Trust

De nieuwe digitale vertrouwensstrategie van ISACA omvat een toekomstig raamwerk

SCHAUMBURG, Illinois – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Hoewel we het ons misschien niet altijd realiseren, creëren de meeste van onze interacties als consumenten een digitale voetafdruk – of we nu een vriend betalen via een mobiele app of ons online registreren voor een doktersafspraak. Maar kunnen we er altijd op vertrouwen dat onze transacties en interacties in deze digitale ecosystemen integer worden uitgevoerd? Een nieuwe gratis whitepaper van ISACA, Digital Trust: A Modern-Day Imperative, onderzoekt dit steeds belangrijker wordende concept van digitaal vertrouwen, hoe het zich verhoudt tot zowel consumenten als aanbieders, en hoe het in de praktijk werkt.

Digital Trust geeft een gedetailleerde definitie van digitaal vertrouwen – het vertrouwen in de integriteit van de relaties, interacties en transacties tussen leveranciers/aanbieders en klanten/consumenten binnen een bijbehorend digitaal ecosysteem – en onderzoekt hoe noodzakelijk het is voor ondernemingen om dit vertrouwen op te bouwen en te behouden.

New ISACA Guide Outlines Key Components of Digital Trust Implementation

ISACA’s new digital trust strategy includes an upcoming framework

SCHAUMBURG, Ill.–(BUSINESS WIRE)– While we may not always realize it, most of our interactions as consumers create a digital footprint—whether we are paying a friend through a mobile app or registering online for a doctor’s appointment. But can we always trust that our transactions and interactions in these digital ecosystems will be conducted with integrity? A new complimentary white paper from ISACA, Digital Trust: A Modern-Day Imperative, explores this increasingly important concept of digital trust, how it relates to both consumers and providers, and how it works in practice.

Digital Trust provides a detailed definition of digital trust—the confidence in the integrity of the relationships, interactions and transactions among suppliers/providers and customers/consumers within an associated digital ecosystem—and examines how imperative it is for enterprises to build and maintain this trust.

The paper, launched at the ISACA Conference North America today, is the first resource in ISACA’s new digital trust strategy.

“Think about a digital space with fewer attacks, more innovation and business growth, and enhanced confidence, with IT professionals leading the way,” said ISACA CEO David Samuelson. “Our global community of like-minded IT professionals works in pursuit of digital trust. More trust means more success. And as security, privacy, assurance and quality professionals, the ISACA community is a key enabler of that success.”

The Digital Trust paper outlines how consumers consider six key elements when assessing digital trust:

  1. Quality
  2. Availability
  3. Security and privacy
  4. Ethics and integrity
  5. Transparency and honesty
  6. Stability and resilience

Many enterprises already realize that valuing digital trust provides them with a competitive advantage, both with their reputation and bottom line. Digital Trust outlines some of the ways that providers can put digital trust in practice, including:

  • Refraining from using dark patterns or techniques to trick or influence data subjects to make a specific choice
  • Conducting regular audits to ensure that controls are in place and working as they should
  • Providing employees with trustworthy technology to do their jobs, and not monitoring them without their knowledge or consent.

“It is absolutely critical for digital trust to be woven into the fabric of any enterprise—to avoid harmful security and privacy incidents, strengthen relationships with consumers, and advance reputation and the bottom line,” says Mark Thomas, president, Escoute Consulting. “Professionals who work in security, audit, governance, risk or privacy all play an essential role in driving digital trust forward, so it is vital that each understands their part in establishing, evaluating, adjusting and implementing digital trust practices within their organizations.”
