Background:

Digital service providers frequently undergo independent third party assessments (i.e., IT certifications) to signal a high degree of service security and privacy. However, the academic literature presents a pattern of inconsistent findings with regard to certification effectiveness. As prior research only analyzes the impact of certifications from a black box perspective (i.e., embedded vs. not embedded a certification seal), we currently lack a deep understanding about certification effectiveness. By conducting interviews with consumers of digital services, we want to derive a detailed theoretical model about certification effectiveness.


Objective(s):

The objective of this theses is to interview cloud service customers (end users or managers in organizations) and analyze the interviews to identify factors that influence certification effectivness.
