Getting Regulation Right for a Digital Society
techUK represent our industry on tech policy and regulatory changes in the UK. Our current focus is on data protection, competition, online safety, and online fraud.
We convene our members and lead conversations with government and regulatory stakeholders to ensure the voice of the industry is heard. As the Government seeks to design new digital regulation for societal objectives, techUK wants to see the UK lead the way in building a coherent landscape that supports digital businesses by being pro-competition and innovation, while also protecting users from potential harm.
