The purely utopian view of the Internet was never credible. Especially as we now know that the Internet can be used to facilitate different forms of harm, such as cyber bullying, hate speech, promotion of terrorism, and the depiction of child abuse. User generated content on the Internet is not subject to the usual editorial controls and legal remedies associated with the traditional media.
In June 2019’s Online Harms White Paper, the UK government stated that the digital economy urgently needs a new regulatory framework to improve our citizens’ safety online. These problems challenge regulators, technology developers and business leaders to come up with disruptive solutions that will create new opportunities in this market-place.
By presenting these problems in front of a diverse group of key influencers and entrepreneurs, this series of events is aiming to come up with solutions which could take us a step closer to a safer internet.
This event will feature three short presentations that address these questions and will conclude with an open forum. This event starts with networking over refreshments and pizza with the talks starting at 18:00. This event is kindly hosted by the PwC.
