Reception

We are delighted to announce that techUK's second National Security Reception will take place on 21 March 2024. The reception is an opportunity to hear from leading national security stakeholders and participate in informal discussions about technology's role in protecting the UK homeland. 

techUK’s National Security Programme provides a forum for national security stakeholders to lead debate on new and emerging technologies which present opportunities to strengthen the UK’s national security, but also expose the vulnerabilities which threaten it. The National Security Programme assesses the capability of these technologies against various challenges facing the national security community in the UK, developing thought leadership on key issues including improving procurement processes, stimulating innovation, and advocating for better diversity and inclusion across the sector whilst also closing the skills gap.

The National Security Reception is also an opportunity for broader techUK members working within the security and resilience sectors, to meet and congratulate the new National Security Committee which will exist to drive and govern the work of the techUK National Security Programme. The Committee will focus on addressing the strategic-level security concerns that impact the UK technology sector, whilst also providing a forum for the Government’s (HMG) national security community to engage with technology suppliers on industry engagement opportunities. The Committee will be techUK’s authoritative voice on national security issues and will lead in highlighting the opportunities for the technology industry to offer solutions to them.
