Event

Technology manifests itself in the real world and in our day-to-day interactions. At the push of a button, we can travel from A to B and easily access goods and services. This does not come without its own challenges – not least to personal safety and national security.

Protecting tech users is a top public policy challenge for the next decade. While innovation has enabled leading digital platforms to raise the bar on safety, it is crucial that platforms and business continues to work with policymakers and experts to adapt to new challenges. Tech solutions, combined with legislation like GDPR, are evidence of a growing awareness of the power of data and companies’ duty of care.

Join us for an engaging discussion that will explore how we can ensure that we keep safe in an ever more connected world. This half-day summit will convene major tech companies, policymakers and safety experts to explore emerging solutions to some of the most complex safety challenges faced today.
