The Video Game Ethics, Trust, and Safety working group (VGETS) aims to address these challenges by leveraging existing knowledge and frameworks from related industries to develop new operational security standards for the video game sector.

By creating collaboration frameworks among trust and safety professionals in the video game industry and experts in cybersecurity, anti-abuse, law enforcement, and child safety, VGETS seeks to prevent and respond effectively to the unique problems faced by gaming. Our ultimate goal is to create a safer and more secure gaming experience for players, developers, and publishers alike.
