Next steps for online safety in the UK

Morning, Monday, 12th September 2022

This conference is examining the next steps for online safety in the UK.

It will be a timely opportunity to discuss key measures contained in the draft Online Safety Bill, as it continues its passage through Parliament, as well as other priorities for creating safe online spaces in the UK.

Delegates will also look at the potential impact of the Online Safety Bill and what it means for the sector, citizens and digital platforms in the UK.

Areas for discussion in the agenda include:

  • Online Safety Bill - stakeholder perspectives on the Bill - related legislation, including the Gambling White Paper and Online Advertising Programme
  • the future for regulation of online spaces - reporting and responding to complaints
  • priorities for improving Media Literacy in the UK - tackling fake news
  • implementation of the Bill following its final passage - data, age verification and other digital rights
  • safe online spaces – governments priorities

 We are pleased to be able to include keynote sessions with Professor Clare McGlynn, Professor of Law, Durham University; Simone Vibert, Head of Policy, Internet Matters; and a senior speaker confirmed from Ofcom - as well as contributions from BT; Childnet International; Meta; and TrustElevate.
