THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
Delegates attending this seminar will focus on the progress being made and next steps for protecting children and young people online.
It takes place as the Digital Economy Bill passes through UK Parliament which includes stricter age verification requirements for commercial providers of online pornographic content, a new regulatory framework for enforcement, and enabling payment providers to withdraw their services from infringing sites.
Bringing together policymakers, industry representatives, parents, educators and charities, areas for discussion include progress made in filtering and technologies; latest progress on tackling emerging new dangers, and longstanding risks - including cyber-bullying, sexual grooming, pornography and radicalisation; the changing role of parents and teachers - particularly in light of increased mobile internet access out of the home and at school; how well different organisations and sectors are helping tackle the issues; and the developing policy framework in light of Brexit, as well as longer-term issues for government and regulators.
