As we face a challenging economic outlook for the year ahead, the tech sector will play a key role in helping to drive the UK’s economic recovery. 2023 will also see several significant pieces of legislation being debated in Parliament, that together aim to build a new regulatory regime for digital businesses in the UK. This legislation covers a huge range of social and economic issues, including privacy, online safety and competition. This regime will be managed by a range of stakeholders, from Government to the regulators, to the businesses who have to implement new rules. Making sure we get this right is a complex conversation, which should be open, balanced, and thorough.

As we prepare for the year ahead, techUK is holding a webinar to discuss how the Government should seek to enact new regulatory regimes that can help the UK realise its vision to become an innovative and truly digital society, where no one is left behind.  In this panel discussion, techUK will be bringing together legislators, and industry experts to discuss the following:

  • Why is getting digital regulation right so important this year for business growth, but also maintaining consumer confidence in tech?
  • How do we strike a balance between regulation that protects citizens’ rights and safety while also enabling innovation?
  • How can we ensure regulation is easily accessible, manageable and coherent for the businesses who need to implement it?
  • What more does the Government need to consider in its approach to digital regulation? What could be at cost if it doesn’t?
