Everyone is a Screenager: Understanding the Implications for Digital Trust
The amount of personal data that companies can now collect on consumers is unprecedented and growing. New connected devices will help companies to capture whole new categories of data at scale and use datasets in ways not yet conceived. This provides immense opportunity for businesses that can turn data into insights to drive highly relevant and compelling products and services.

In this new era, 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. How should companies close this gap and leverage digital identities and technology opportunities?

Paul Johnson, Research Manager - Communications, Media and Technology team from Accenture will explore the importance of digital trust and what actions to take today to build digital trust in the IoT Era.
