Creating a fair & trusted
European digital ecosystem

is one of EU’s biggest challenges

“We have such an increase in the online traffic that we need to make rules that put order in the chaos. That is what the Digital Services Act is all about: creating the rules, making the online world safe, reliable and secure for all users of the digital roads. We should all be able to trust what we do online.” 

Margrethe Vestager

“We are witnessing another industrial revolution—a digital one. Rapidly evolving technology, superfast connections such as 5G, the massive amount of data this connectivity generates and artificial intelligence will reshape the lives and societies we know today.”
