Corporate governance practitioners are faced with both challenges and opportunities in a digital era. Boards of directors need to ensure that the data of their stakeholders are safe, and their companies will not become targets of cybersecurity attacks. Stakeholders such as employees and consumers find it easier to get mobilized and engage in collective actions with the help of social media platforms, increasing their power over companies. Retail investors can coordinate their trading activities through information sharing platforms such as Reddit, as shown by the GameStop saga. A growing number of publicly traded companies hold their annual shareholder meetings virtually using online platforms. Governments scramble to enact regulations that can address new realities in a digital era. Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the rate of the digitalization of the world economy. However, we have not developed much insight into how companies can navigate challenges and opportunities brought by the digitalization of businesses to corporate governance. Against this background, the theme of the 8th annual ICGS conference is “Corporate Governance in a Digital Era: Challenges and Opportunities.”
