techUK is convening its inaugural Subsea Cables Summit to shape the current policy and regulatory debate on subsea cables, the UK's internet resilience and lessons we could learn from other jurisdictions on this matter. We will learn some key insights following a detailed sector review, explore user needs and how essential subsea cables are to the UK’s economic security and innovation.

Subsea cables form an essential element of internet infrastructure and deliver its resilience - however, the cables themselves are at risk of accidental, environmental and deliberate damage and sabotage.

It is therefore imperative that techUK examines the UK's subsea regulatory model and market development to ensure we are not vulnerable to future disruption, face barriers to inward investment, miss out on the UK’s role as a data services leader.

Attendees and speakers will include representatives from the incumbent subsea cable telecoms operators; subsea cable vendors and commercial repair and maintenance firms, and industry bodies; security stakeholders; end-users; and independent industry experts.

Attendance

The workshop welcomes attendance from interested parties across industry and the public sector. This will be an in-person event with space limited to 30 participants. If over-subscribed, participants will be prioritised to ensure a spread of knowledge, experience, and interest areas are represented. 

Booking a ticket will only register your interest for this Summit and should not be considered a confirmation. We will reach out to confirm attendees on a rolling basis by 30 April.

If you have any questions, please contact Sophie Greaves, Head of Telecoms and Spectrum Policy ([email protected]).
