A Digital Charter
The UK government has flagged plans to develop a ‘digital charter’ that will create a new framework which balances users’ and businesses’ freedom and security online and make it "the safest place in the world to be online". The UK government will work with technology companies, charities, communities and international partners to develop the Charter, and make sure it is underpinned by an effective regulatory framework. What do you think of this idea? Is it something that could work for Australia?
Why the contribution is important
Getting online comes with many benefits, but it also comes with risks associated with national security, cybercrime, data breaches and other types of malicious activity.
Our ability to make the most of digital technologies depends on whether Australians can safely and confidently interact online. At the core of this is trust in the companies, services, people and data we interact with.
- What are the roles for government, businesses, individuals, and the community in setting a framework for online engagement?
- How should we balance a free and open internet, with managing the risks that come with online engagement?
- What opportunities do we have to build trust and community confidence through resilience to cyber threats, online safety and privacy?
- What integrity measures do we need to ensure consumers can protect their data, and business-consumer transactions are secure?
