The UK has entered into a new chapter in its history following the result of the EU membership referendum. There are clearly a number of significant questions and issues that will need to be addresses in the weeks, months and years ahead. ISPA will work with its members and Government to fully understand what Brexit will mean for the sector.
The EU is responsible for a considerable amount of regulations affecting the Internet and technology sectors and it remains to be seen what the full ramifications of this are. To name a few, this could have an impact on the future regulation of data privacy, public funding for broadband, surveillance powers and the future of the Investigatory Powers Bill, consumer regulation and the future of the Digital Single Market.
The UK has a world-leading digital economy, ensuring this is maintained should be a priority as industry and government respond to the new UK landscape.
