Welcome to the recording of our “Online harms: Social media giants under the spotlight” webinar first published Friday 14 February.
The Online Harms White Paper was launched in April 2019 aiming to create a culture of transparency, trust and accountability. Consultation closed on 1 July 2019 and the government (now with an unassailable majority) intends to introduce the legislation as soon as possible in 2020. The new legislation will make companies responsible for their users’ safety online, especially children and other vulnerable groups and for tackling harm caused by content or activity on their services.
By watching this webinar you will gain a greater appreciation of:
- What particular issues the legislation intends to address
- Who will be affected by the legislation and how
- How to prepare for the new regulatory regime
Hosted by BLM partners, Steve Kuncewicz and Nick Gibbons
