Workshop Title The proposed new session title was then reviewed and discussed:

It was proposed to consider adding in How the EU looks to cope through regulation with the Challenges and Opportunities of the European Union’s Digital Transformation on Cybersecurity, Data Protection and Safety
Session Description The proposed new session description was reviewed:
The European Union's (EU) regulatory framework for digital services, data protection, privacy, hate speech, child safety, and cybersecurity reflects the EU's ongoing efforts to address the challenges and opportunities presented by the digital transformation and to ensure that digital technologies serve the common good while respecting fundamental rights and values.
The standards creation process can help bring together a wide variety of stakeholders to contribute to structuring the process of making systems safe and trustworthy for all.
This session aims to explore how collaborative standards development and its outputs can help support the implementation of the EU’s regulatory framework and discusses how standards strengthen linkages between European cyber policy and non-government sectors.
Suggestions to improve the description noted the need to restate and add more substance to the second statement on “The standards creation process can help bring together a wide variety of stakeholders to contribute to structuring the process of making systems safe and trustworthy for all “ to include details on the standards development process and how standards are used to implement EU regulation.
