As a society, we are likely experiencing the largest technological expansion in human history. The evolving digital transformation comes with the crucial responsibility of safeguarding the well-being and security of individuals in the digital realm.
We stand at a pivotal juncture where adapting to the new digital world while prioritizing the health and safety of users is of paramount importance. This concept is encapsulated in what we call “cyber ergonomics,” a holistic approach that blends the benefits of technology with the basic principles of safety, productivity, and comfort.

All in all, we must protect our mental and physical well-being from the strains of the digital world, just like we protect our computers. Embracing digital transformation with cyber ergonomics involves taking a holistic approach “by design” and “by default” to digitalization. It prioritizes the health, safety, and comfort of individuals while harnessing the benefits of technology to drive innovation and efficiency in today’s digitally driven world.
