Digital Safety Conference in England

Posted by:

19th June 2009
The Brewery, Barbican, London

Dear Colleague,

Did you know that 92% of UK Internet time is spent on non-UK websites?

Did you know that without a global legal framework there is little interoperability between enforcement agencies thus rendering virtually impotent the work of key initiatives seeking to protect the privacy and civil liberties of citizens and combat online bullying / cyberstalking?

Did you know that your movements can be tracked by your mobile phone signal and then sold as marketing data?

Did you know that the UK is claimed to be a world leader for Internet child safety yet there are an estimated 500,000 cases of cyberstalking?

Technology positive, the Digital Safety Conference 2009 is an opportunity to join fellow thought leaders, practitioners and policy makers from a cross-sector cohort of delegates in an independent debate about the health, reputation and environment of the digital world.

Key themes and speakers

From the Internet to location based services to mobile communications; the nature of this independent conference is indisputably positive towards these technologies and the enormous benefits that they bring to society.

In acknowledging the benefits we must also acknowledge that there are individuals, organisations and agencies that abuse the power of these systems.
