SiliconAngle – Duncan Riley – 7/31/18
Nearly a year after the notorious hack of Equifax Inc. saw the theft of 146.6 million customer records, a new report has found that there’s a big gap between what consumers want in data protection and what businesses are providing.
The findings come today from CA Technologies Inc. and Frost and Sullivan’s The Global State of Online Digital Trust report. It based its findings on a global survey of consumers, cybersecurity professionals and business executives about their trust in the organizations.
“We wanted to understand the differences in the perspectives of these very different audiences,” a spokesperson for CA Technologies said. “Do they hold the same view of the importance of digital trust? How is digital trust viewed differently around the world? With that information, we can build an evaluation index that can be measured over time to understand how the state of digital trust globally is evolving.”
