The UK’s digital economy continues to grow, innovate and out-perform other sectors. At a time of uncertainty caused by the vote to leave the European Union, it offers unrivalled opportunities as the UK renegotiates its relationship with the EU and pursues global opportunities. This conference will discuss the internet industry priorities for Brexit, provide valuable insight into what lies ahead from leaders on key industries that rely on ISPs in the UK, discuss key industry trends and issues and learn from legal and regulatory experts through consumer workshops.
9:30 – 9:50: Keynote address
9:50 – 11:00: What do ISPs want to see from Brexit?
Chaired by a K&L Gates partner on what Brexit could mean for ISPA members, this panel will hear from CEOs and industry influencers on what the future rules governing the Internet should look like and the opportunities presented by Brexit. With the UK’s relationship with the EU and the rest of the world subject to change and long-standing rules up for negotiation, the panel will discuss and examine what outcomes industry wants from the negotiations.
11:00 - 11:20 Break
11:20 - 12:30: Enabling opportunity
This panel will hear from cutting-edge and data-intensive industries about what services they are developing and how they (and their customers) expect to use the Internet in the future. This panel will further explore how ISPs, hosts and data centre can best adapt and innovate to meet these requirements.

13:45 – 14:05: Keynote 2: Presentation from Radwin
14:05 – 15:05 Break out 1: Legal workshop
With so much uncertainty, this legal workshop will look at ISP liability now and in the future, analysing topics such as IoT, driverless cars liability, how to manage the GDPR post-Brexit and a future data sharing agreement between the UK and EU.
14:05 – 15:05: Break out 2: Broadband market developments: what next?
This breakout is an opportunity for ISPs to discuss how they plan to adapt in the face of changing user demands, as well as asking how people will interact with their ISP, how products will evolve and where future opportunities will arise.
15:05 – 15:20 Break
15:20 – 16:30: Cyber Security Strategy
The Internet is fundamental to our economic growth and threats can range from crippling DDoS attacks, to cyber-criminals using the pipes to form botnets and attack individual machines. Government want providers to do more on cyber and with threats now coming from abroad, and EU regulation like the NIS Directive and GDPR, how can ISPs be more secure and assure customers outside the European Union?
16:30-17:15: In conversation with Clive Selley
To close the day’s event, there will be a discussion with Openreach CEO Clive Selley to discuss the future of UK digital infrastructure, new products and innovations and the regulatory framework.
