The word “digital policy” is used to describe all the political decisions and definitions relating to digital technologies and the changes triggered by their proliferation.

The term “digital policy” is used in the public debate, particularly with regard to the conception of the actions of the legislature and the executive to shape digital change.

Beyond the relams of the political process and governmental action, the word “digital policy” is sometimes also used in the context of companies, institutions and organisations under private law to characterise the main features of dealing with digitisation and digital transformation in the sense of a general political decision.
