Welcome to the ISO/TC 223 Societal security webpage

Mrs Åsa Kyrk Gere, Chair

ISO/TC 223 develops international standards that aim to increase societal security, specifically the protection of society from and response to incidents, emergencies, and disasters caused by intentional and unintentional human acts, natural hazards, and technical failures.

Here you can find everything you need to know about this committee and the work that we are doing. We hope that you find our developed ISO standards useful and I would also like to invite you to contribute to the ongoing work as well as becoming a member of the committee.

These organizations must now consider how to embrace, utilize and manage social media in order to make strategic decisions, maintain operational awareness, and increase their communication capability.
