Gemalto, Microsoft, Nokia, and Philips have announced an initiative to address the issue of trust in new and emerging digital services. The initiative aims to bring European public and private stakeholders together to advance ‘Trust in Digital Life’ through the development of a common vision. Based on the vision, the initiative will create an agenda to promote alignment of public and private policies. This joint initiative aims to help consumers overcome the fear of identity fraud and data breaches. ‘Trust in Digital Life’ takes a multi-disciplinary approach- involving users, markets, legal and societal aspects, and technology– that will accelerate research and development of trustworthy technologies and products.
