At the heart of every relationship that HP shares with its customers is trust. That's why we're honored to learn that the Ponemon Institute, a leading research firm, has ranked HP in the top 5 most trustworthy companies for 2012. This year's study positioned HP as the second most trusted company for privacy issues. 


The Most Trusted Companies for Privacy Study ranks the 20 most trusted businesses according to consumers. Many of this year's highly ranked firms come from the technology industry.


According to the study, "[m]ore than 100,000 adult-aged consumers were asked to name up to five companies they believe to be the most trusted for protecting the privacy of their personal information. Consumer responses were gathered over a 15-week period concluding in December 2012 and resulted in a final sample of 6,704 respondents who, on average, provided 5.4 discernible company ratings that represent 25 different industries."


As for the findings, 73% of respondents identified "substantial security protections" as their top concern. This an area that HP will aim to continuously excel in.
