Cloud, Data, Analytics & AI Update | August 2017

Despite the Summer Holidays, techUK has been busy with all things Data. The Government released its paper on 'The exchange and protection of personal data' which set out its ambitions to maintain data flows post-Brexit. Check out techUK's response here.

techUK also held a sold out event on how GDPR will affect the Health and Social Care industry, with a panel of industry experts who explored various issues, ranging from requirements around sensitive personal data to the preparedness of the health and social care industry.

With the success of Supercharging the Digital Economy in 2016, we are delighted to announce that Supercharging is back this October and will focus on the global digital economy. To avoid disappointment, secure your place now - tickets are available on the techUK website.
