ISPA Meets With James Brokenshire -
Following his keynote speech at the ISPA Conference last year, ISPA met with the Home Office Minister James Brokenshire MP to discuss the newly formed government/ISP partnership to tackle cyber security.
The Minister stated that the government is keen for the UK to be seen as the most secure place for business on the Internet and views a partnership approach between ISPs and government as an important way to achieve this.
ISPA will continue to liase with government on this self-regulatory partnership to tackle e-crime and online safety and ensure the Internet continues to be a safe place to communicate and do business.
