IDC’s Future of Trust framework illustrates that Trust is an indicator of the quality of the relationships found between individuals, between organizations, and between individuals and organizations. Competitive edge, customer loyalty, and willingness of consumers to share personal data is a direct result of high trust within organizations. In healthcare and life science (HLS) organizations, trust is a particularly critical component as the HSL industry deals with patient’s lives.

“Implementing Trust is 8% technology and 92% people and process. Foundation Medicine culturally transformed the security, governance, risk, and compliance functions of its business,” said Frank Dickson, group vice president, Security and Trust at IDC. “Now Foundation Medicine is able to leverage a platform as a single source of truth to transfer data securely, manage spreadsheets, communicate the business impact to key stakeholders, and make strategic, risk-informed decisions, all in a much timelier manner than the previous manual process allowed, ultimately making the business more agile, audit-ready, and protected in the long run.”
