Risk governance is crucial for societal transition which will be based on an increased role of digitalization of all aspects of society as digitalization brings new opportunities but also new risks and challenges. Digitalization is also influencing decision-making processes and the actions of various stakeholders. 

The presentation of Nadejda Komendantova covers two aspects of risk governance and its connection to digitalization. On the one side, digitalization creates new challenges for interconnected critical infrastructure such as electricity networks. On the other side digitalization influences risk perceptions of various stakeholders and requires new decision support tools to address impacts of the risk perceptions on stakeholders’ actions. These examples highlight the need for a multi-risk governance approach to address existing and emerging challenges.
