techUK will be holding an initial virtual roundtable for members to gauge interest in the topic of vetting transformation and to better understand not only the pain points of vetting for industry but the potential for the community to help shape a system in need of iteration, to ensure it is minimising risk to all. 

Given the current geopolitical landscape and increased risk to individuals, organisations, and the public sector, we hope you can join this roundtable to help shape techUK's perspective on such an important topic. The intent of the roundtable is to inform and identify areas of collaboration, and smooth areas of conflict, ahead of a more open engagement later in the year. We would like members to be on the front foot post election, driving a key part of the national security conversation. Vetting is about more than technology: it's about people, processes, policies and platforms. This roundtable is an opportunity to prepare for future conversations about a complete system and how techUK could support each of the above pillars.
