Organizations

The Digital Trust Label gives organizations a way to convey their commitment to credibility (please also see our clarification here). Get audited and start building trust in your digital services today. Benefits include:

Better regulatory compliance

The regulatory landscape for digital technologies is rapidly evolving – but not always in a coordinated and clear way. This can leave companies struggling to conduct business in compliance with complex new rules. Certification based on a solid assessment can help companies navigate new and shifting regulatory landscapes

Response to growing user demands

Organizations using the Digital Trust Label signal their understanding that trust must be earned as technology, consumer expectations and business opportunities evolve. The Digital Trust Label puts the user at the heart of the experience.

Competitive advantage through credible trustworthiness

By signing up for the Digital Trust Label, you agree to an audit as part of the certification process. This sends a strong signal to your users about the trustworthiness of your digital services. The Digital Trust Label makes digital services comparable and enables organizations to aspire to achieve an ambitious rating, leading to a competitive advantage.
