The Role of Trust in Security
Jim Alkove, Chief Trust Officer, Salesforce
“Trust” is defined as “a reliance on the integrity, strength, ability, surety, etc., of a person or thing; confidence.” As security has matured and aligned with the business, a growing focus on trust has become a priority for those organizations and their security teams. But trust needs to be more than a concept to deliver true business value. It must applied both externally (with customers, partners, suppliers, and investors) and internally (with employees). It must encompass business trust, digital trust, and people trust. It also requires a stable of the organization’s leaders committed to delivering on its promise. Understanding how it comes together is different for every organization, but for Salesforce it’s a corporate imperative. Join us for a wide ranging discussion on the role of trust, the tools necessary to make a SaaS partnership secure, and how the culture of an organization informs its approach to trust.
