Everyone is a Screenager: Understanding the Implications for Digital Trust (Tuesday, November 3 @ 1:30 - 2:15pm): Although connected devices help companies capture new categories of data that can turn into insights to drive relevant and compelling products and services, digital trust is at a deficit. The majority of consumers remain cautious about sharing their personal information online and, when they do, they trust established brands more than other companies. Paul Johnson, Research Manager for the Communications, Media and Technology team from Accenture will explore the importance of digital trust and how companies can leverage digital identities and technology to build digital trust in the IoT era.
