In its current form, the directive would require platforms to install content filtering technologies or be held liable for users&rsquo; copyright infringement.

However, he questioned the need for children to have access to their own devices whilst at school.

We were delighted to welcome over 170 attendees to discuss the future potential for IoT and the skills and security challenges that we face in realising that potential. A full round-up of the day is <a href="insights/meeting-notes/item/12288-event-round-up-future-of-iot">available here</a>.</p> <p>Security clearly remains a challenge for consumers – who are also concerned about privacy as evidenced in our <a href="insights/reports/item/11743-the-connected-home-a-view-of-the-uk-market-and-future-trends">2017 Connected Home Report</a> – as well as enterprises who are concerned about the additional attack service that IoT can introduce. We will be focusing on how we can drive up security standards in the IoT ecosystem working with members, wider industry, regulators and Government. If you're interested in keeping yourself more secure using IoT products then do look at <a href="https://iotuk.org.uk/cyber-hygiene-infographic/">IoTUK's cyber hygiene work with UCL</a>.</p> <p>In addition to this work we are looking forward to the start of a series of interesting events and workshops with the Housing Association Charitable Trust to see how technology solutions can help that sector tackle some of its core challenges.

A successor of the Smart Grid Forum, this new forum is tasked with helping to implement and steer BEIS and Ofgem's Smart Systems &amp; Flexibility Plan, as well as provide industry oversight on wider network issues related to the evolution of the electricity system. techUK is delighted to join the Forum and will keep members updated as work progresses, highlighting areas where members can directly contribute.</p> <p>BEIS published its long awaited <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33059&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">Clean Growth Strategy</a> setting out proposals for decarbonising the UK economy through the 2020s. The strategy builds on a number of successes. In 2016, 47% of energy came from low carbon sources and the UK has more offshore wind capacity than anyone else. Domestic energy consumption is down by 17% on 1990 levels, despite the growth in electronics and the arrival of the internet. There is, however, more to be done if the UK is to continue to support low carbon growth. We worked closely with Government on key aspects of the strategy including the <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33060&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">built environment</a>, <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33061&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">business energy costs</a>, and <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=T0544S607319594&amp;CC=&amp;w=33062&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">smart infrastructure</a>.

Well over 100 suppliers have committed to make information systems more open and easier to integrate, to enable the free-flow of patient information between products, and hence across the care continuum. As part of taking this work forward, techUK is a member of INTEROPen, who work to develop FHIR profiles for the NHS, based upon real-world scenarios and use cases. We are looking for medical device companies to join a conversation to establish the scenarios and use cases that exist for devices.

The Bill would require any IoT-enabled devices sold to Government to be patchable, not have any known security vulnerabilities, and permit users to change their default passwords. Whilst the Bill is narrow in its application to Government purchases, it marks a major step forward for IoT devices which to date have been almost entirely unregulated. Discussions around security in an IoT world are already underway across the UK and Europe, with a suite of regulatory and non-regulatory interventions being weighed up. techUK is heavily involved in these discussions and will be establishing a joint IoT and Cyber Security Council Working Group to take positions forward. <a href="http://marketing.intellectuk.info/lz//lz.aspx?p1=05281101S9653&amp;CC=&amp;w=31977&amp;cID=0&amp;cValue=1">The first meeting is due to take place on the 5 September</a>.</p> http://www.techuk.org/insights/newsletters/item/11184-policy-pulse-your-weekly-update-on-tech-and-digital-policy Policy Pulse | Your Weekly Update on Tech and Digital Policy http://www.techuk.org/insights/newsletters/item/11184-policy-pulse-your-weekly-update-on-tech-and-digital-policy Wed, 09 Aug 2017 08:57:00 +0100 Tom Morrison-Bell(techUK) tom.morrison-bell@techuk.org This week, the Government have announced to implement GDPR through the Data Protection Bill, the biggest change to data protection rules in over 20 years. <p>It's been a busy two weeks for tech – the Government has revealed how it intends to use a new Data Protection Bill to implement GDPR, the Home Secretary has commissioned the Migration Advisory Committee to examine the impact of EU migration on the UK, and the Government will launch a new fund to back UK startups.
