In today’s world, we complete many digital interactions every day, ranging from basic text messaging to complex financial transactions. To maintain the security of this digital ecosystem and ensure everyone’s privacy, it’s crucial for technology companies, governments, and other organizations to establish digital trust.
Encompassing key factors like reliability, transparency, integrity, and security, digital trust assures individuals that their online transactions, interactions, and business processes are conducted in a safe and secure manner.
Digital trust instills confidence in the proper functioning of digital systems, technologies, and platforms, as well as their ability to safeguard sensitive information and preserve the privacy of user data. Consumers must have this trust to engage in digital activities with peace of mind.
According to a recent survey conducted by McKinsey & Company, which involved over 1,300 business leaders and 3,000 consumers worldwide, consumers have high expectations for companies to secure and maintain their digital data. Plus, the survey findings indicate that organizations that build digital trust are more likely to experience higher annual growth rates.
At Jotform, we earn digital trust by protecting users’ information and privacy, while being transparent and providing them with top-notch tools. Trust is fragile and difficult to regain once lost. That’s why we’ve made digital trust the cornerstone of the entire Jotform infrastructure.
