Taso Advisory
May Wed, 2021

The Online Safety Bill will mean a new duty of care for tech companies, impacting almost all those that allow users to interact online. The Bill has been years in the making, is one of the first attempts to regulate online content in the world, and the issues it seeks to address are complex.

Please complete the form on the side of this page for a free copy of the Taso Advisory briefing document on the provisions in the draft Bill.

Taso Advisory hosted a webinar debate on the draft Online Safety Bill where we discussed the initial questions that it raises and how it will fare in Parliament once it is formally introduced. 

Our panel discussed:

  • Who the main interest and political groups are that support or oppose the Bill and their concerns. 
  • What clarifications are needed, including: scope, definitions, powers granted to Ministers and which companies are in scope. 
  • Where tensions will arise as the Bill passes through Parliament and what Members of Parliament and Peers will be looking out for. 
  • How the Bill fits into international efforts to deal with illegal or harmful content. 

Our panelists for the event were:

  • Ben Greenstone, Founder and Managing Director of Taso Advisory (Chair)
  • Margot James, Former Minister for Digital and Creative Industries
  • Darren Jones MP, Chair of the Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy Committee
  • Poppy Wood, Senior Advisor, Reset.Tech
