Cybercrime continues to cause increasing threat to business processes, eroding stakeholders’ trust in internet technologies. In this research paper, we explore how six dominant algorithmic trust positions facilitate cognitive processing, which, in turn, can influence an organisation’s productivity and align its values and support structures for combating cybercrimes. This conceptual paper uses a cognitive perspective described as a Throughput Model. This modeling perspective captures several dominant algorithmic trust positions for organisations, providing a new and powerful approach which seeks to enhance our understanding of the cognitive representation of decision-making processes. These trust positions are (1) rational-based trust, (2) rule-based trust, (3) category-based trust, (4) third-party based trust, (5) role-based trust, and (6) knowledge-based trust. Finally, we provide conclusions and implications for future research.
