About the Safety Tech 101 webinar series
Safety Tech is a fast-moving environment, with respect to the harms, risks and technologies in scope. Every day, the organisations involved are developing novel approaches to identify and counter risks before users are harmed. Therefore, the taxonomies highlighted in DCMS’ Safety Tech report are intended to reflect an overview of the current products and services offered by Safety Tech companies.
The Safety Tech 101 series has been designed to provide our audiences with a deep dive into each of these categories, explaining further the innovative products and services that help businesses better protect their online users from harm.
Each event is delivered by leading industry experts who will share real life examples of their technologies at each level of Safety Tech.
These are must-attend events for anyone looking to learn more about the Safety Tech sector and what technologies are used to protect users online.
