Please note the date of this seminar has changed.


This timely conference will consider priorities for the Government’s upcoming National Data Strategy, in the context of recent policy developments in this area in the UK and more widely.


We expect discussion to focus on key emerging areas of focus for the Strategy, as well as wider issues around the use of consumer and personal data in the digital economy.


In light of the Government’s overarching policy focus on achieving a balance between supporting innovation in data usage and addressing concerns around security, privacy, consent and liability - and with further policy developments including the Smart Data Review and the new Centre for Data Ethics and Innovation - delegates will examine next steps for developing and putting into place sustainable best practice for businesses, charities and the public sector in the handling and protection of data.


Attendees will also discuss next steps for driving investment and innovation in data-driven technologies such as AI, as well as the way forward for building public trust and confidence as they are rolled out across a range of sectors and use cases.
