Next steps for data reform in the UK

Morning, Monday, 31st October 2022


This conference examines the next steps for data policy and regulation in the UK - as well as the future of international data relationships and the way forward for improving the use of data to boost the economy.


With senior contributions from the ICO and DCMS, it will be a timely opportunity to discuss the Data Protection and Digital Information Bill as it progresses through parliament.


Delegates will discuss options for the UK in the context of the evolving international data landscape and measures in the Government response to the Data: a new direction consultation.


Stakeholders and policymakers will look at the use of data to drive research, innovation, and economic growth and to improve the delivery of public services - as well as the future of data rights and control, security, exchange, responsibilities, legislation, and regulation in the context of ICO reform.


Overall, areas for discussion include:

  • the international data landscape - International Data Exchange, security and use - options for the UK
