Full Fibre Coverage for the UK; how Britain can learn from other nations

Digital Britain
Advanced communications infrastructure is the foundation of leadership in the global economy. As the world continues to move toward higher bandwidth applications and 5G mobile service, fibre-based infrastructure will play an increasingly important role. Whist telecommunications requires a reasonable level of regulation, Britain’s policies may be inhibiting fulsome investment, growth and innovation. What can we learn from the approach of other nations that are supporting and incentivizing full fibre deployment? How can we collaborate and mobilize to accelerate progress in Britain? Join us for this provocative conversation.

Why securing the Application Economy is vital for a digital society

Digital Britain
Applications are part of our everyday lives and form the foundation of a digital society. We rely on them to make our lives run more smoothly and quickly - whether we realise it or not. But for all of the convenience and efficiencies applications bring, they are also a source of security concern. Data leakage, identity theft and payment fraud can all be perpetrated via our valued applications. This session will explore the role we all play in securing the Application Economy, and how partnerships and alliances are crucial to achieving it.
