THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This timely seminar will be an opportunity to discuss the latest priorities for regulation online and the way forward for policy in balancing national security, commercial objectives and civil liberties.
Following recent acts of terror and commitments from all UK political parties to address hateful and terrorist content online, delegates will consider what practical steps that can be taken for regulating this space, whilst ensuring that the internet remains open; and free-speech, uncompromised.
Areas for discussion will include the use of encryption on messaging services; the responsibilities of providers in aiding law enforcement and for protecting people online, particularly children and vulnerable groups; the use of the dark web for criminal and terrorist activities, and how this can be monitored and regulated; and protection against traditional online threats such as sexual abuse, fraud, trolling and piracy.
