Internet regulation, responsibility and safety: Policy, practicalities and the role of providers

The focus:
Latest thinking on regulation, the internet and internet safety – including moves to increase the responsibilities of ISPs, social media services and content providers.
Key discussion areas:
  • The way forward for industry responsibility and practice – including ISPs, platforms, content sites and social media providers;
  • Options for policy that balances internet freedoms and online safety, taking into account practicalities, commercial objectives and civil liberties alongside protecting individuals, vulnerable groups and wider society;
  • The future of relationships between industry and governments, law enforcement and other authorities including issues such as the use of message encryption;
  • Data protection policy and regulation, as well as the EU GDPR and NIS Directive, the recently announced Data Protection Bill 2017, and the UK’s changing relationship with Europe; and
  • Latest developments in both online threats and the approaches to tackling them, including established online threats such as radicalisation, sexual abuse, fraud, trolling and piracy.
