At the Digital Trust 2025 Conference, co-organized by the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies and Center for Digital Trust (C4DT), EPFL, we addressed a number of key questions: How does a lack of digital trust manifest itself today? Is this justified, based on current privacy and security issues, or is it exaggerated? What lessons can be learned from other sectors on how to build the trust that will be needed for our digital future?
The final high-level panel built on the topics of the day to discuss how digital trust can develop to meet the needs of existing and new online services. The challenge is multi-stakeholder, as companies, governments, technologists will all have a role to play in designing security, ensuring that it is implemented, and ensuring that organizations and end-users understand and address the challenges to protect themselves and their customers.
