The quality of the trust network consists of confidential, reliable, and available company and personal data by and for users on the trust network. Companies and individuals protect their confidential data by controlling it themselves. Also, companies make agreements about the reliability level of the data. Making the data available on the trust network creates certainty about access to reliable data. The accountability and responsibility for organising compliance with legal and contractual obligations, particularly the TTP policy, create certainty for users on the trust network about the quality range of data of other users. The degree of compliance is indicated in the Accountability Seal Register.
Confidential, reliable, and available company and personal data are essential for the effective organisation of business activities such as sales, human resources and purchasing when entering obligations, making explicit agreements and contract management. Ultimately, they guarantee the continuity of business operations.
In the information ecosystem, a company organizes the – access to – relevant company and personal data by partners (each company manages the quality of its company data, which has only been recorded once).
