From Encryption to Take Downs: Internet Regulation Update


Join us for our latest online event where we will be exploring the topic of internet regulation and delving into various industry regulations and their effectiveness to protect us against things such as cyber-attacks, unlawful access to data, and online content.

With a panel of experts from Australia, New Zealand, and Europe, who all have experience in the seeming avalanche of internet regulation, we will be asking their thoughts on the key issues for internet regulation today and what the future might look like for the internet industry.

We will be discussing government’s attitudes to encryption, online safety bills and the increasing approaches towards constraining platform operators, plus much more during our open social at the end of the event.
