Building trust online

ICAEW’s IT Faculty says there is a growing need for informed debate about privacy, IP rights and information security

First published in 2011, Building Trust in the Digital Age: Rethinking Privacy, Property and Security confirms that IT transforms the way businesses operate but concerns about the control and security of digital information have been fuelled by major data breaches, identity thefts and computer viruses.

The publication summarises business practices, underlying theory and new areas of debate.
