Online Trust Audit Updates & Translations Now Available

Megan Kruse
By Megan KruseDirector, Partner Engagement and Communications

A slightly updated version of the Online Trust Audit & Honor Roll is now available in English, French, and Spanish.

Changes include:

  • Accidentally marked Google Play as top scorer in Appendix C (instead of Google News)
  • Missing bar in graph on page 5
  • Several minor spacing, grammar, and miscellaneous edits

The Online Trust Audit & Honor Roll assesses nearly 1,200 organizations, recognizing excellence in online consumer protection, data security, and responsible privacy practices. This Audit of more than 1,200 predominantly consumer-facing websites is the largest undertaken by OTA, and was expanded this year to include payment services, video streaming, sports sites, and healthcare.

This is the first time in the Audit’s 10-year history that we’ve translated it, and we’re proud to bring it to a wider audience. Going forward, we will work toward adding more global sectors and regions into the report findings.

The Trust Audit Planning Committee, open to Internet Society organization members, has already had its first meeting to discuss the methodology for next year’s Audit. A public call for comment on the draft methodology will come later this year, so watch this blog or follow us on Twitter or Facebook to keep up with our work.
