The technology industry has been ranked most-trusted for the seventh consecutive year, ahead of the automotive and food and beverage industries, according to the 2013 Edelman Trust Barometer. However, Edelman’s corporate practice chairman, Ben Boyd, warns that "It's a double edged sword: As technology enables more data capture and data dissemination, data concerns are going to rise. For the tech industry, that's how do we continue to deliver value while not compromising things customers' value." The survey was done with 31,000 people in 26 countries. 57% of people surveyed trust media ahead of government institutions (48% trusted), but behind NGOs (63% trusted) and businesses (58% trusted).
