Having been asked by Government to be the Champion for the #WeProtect - Child Internet Risk Dashboard, techUK outlined the work on the CIRD (and the role of technology tools in general) to the Prime Minister and international delegates at the Global Summit, and at the most recent meeting of the Child Internet Risk Dashboard group on 28th February it was felt that this project was coming to a successful conclusion.
