|ISPA in 2014
This is the last ISPA News of 2014, a busy year for the association. The Internet industry saw major legislation with the passing of DRIPA, plus other various communications data initiatives. ISPA has represented industry in other issues such as reforming Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), cyber-security, law enforcement and broadband. ISP responded to eight consultations affecting the industry, introduced a programme of workshops across the country and held policy forum with the Interception of Communications Commissioner. The ISPA Awards saw The Guardian named Internet Hero and GCHQ named Internet Villain. ISPA was very busy in the media, giving industry’s views on everything from broadband speeds and copyright, to online safety, malicious communications and whether or not the internet was ‘running out’. ISPA has also been preparing for 2015, which will be the association’s 20th anniversary, and we will be in touch in the New Year with plans for marking the anniversary.
