The Technological and Digital risk: Research Issues is the second volume produced by the international research group Rischio, comunicazione e società/Riesgo, comunicación y sociedad, born in 2017 and led by Gevisa La Rocca and Juan Martínez Torvisco.

The research group connects two Universities: Kore University of Enna and University La Laguna.

Each year the research group addresses a different aspect of the link between risk, communication and society. It invites all the scholars working on these topics to contribute to the expansion of knowledge.

In 2018 the international research group published a volume in Spanish, with the aim of tackling risk in a multidisciplinary manner.

In this volume, on the other hand, attention is paid to technological and digital risk and is a prelude to a new definition of risk.
