As data privacy continues to be a large concern, a Tuesday report from CA Technologies revealed the extreme differences in digital trust between consumers, cybersecurity professionals and business decision makers.
The report defined digital trust as the confidence placed in an organization to collect, store, and use peoples' digital information in a manner that benefits and protects those people.
The report found that consumers have a digital trust index of 61 points out of 100, 14 points below that of business decision makers and cybersecurity professionals, at 75 points. This signals "mismatched perceptions" of perceived consumer trust versus actual consumer trust, a press release noted.
