Webinar 25 April 2019: Rethinking trust in the digital age

25 April 2019

Ethical Leadership in Business Talks

 

In the digitalized economy, public trust in the benefits of the digital transformation has been the basis for growth and progress.

However, the public’s trust in digital services and products is constantly being challenged by incidences such as security breaches, identity thefts, black mailing and user profiling by business. Distrust is growing and with it resistance to the ongoing transformation. Now is the time to act and rethink the role of trust in the digital age!

  • Which technology solutions can be developed to rebuild and sustain digital trust?
  • What role do values and ethics play in strengthening trust in the digital economy?
  • Do we need to redefine the concept of trust in the digital age?

 

Join us for this hour-long webinar on Thursday 25 April at 2pm CET!

You’ll get a good idea of the upcoming conversation on digital trust and the unique experience provided by the Caux Forum Ethical Leadership in Business event 2019.
