London Conference on Cyberspace

Held at the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre, the London Conference on Cyberspace on 1-2 November will be hosted by the Secretary of State for Foreign & Commonwealth Affairs, the Rt Hon William Hague MP.  

It will aim to launch a more focussed and inclusive dialogue between key cyberspace actors from across the world including from government, industry and civil society. This will aim to develop a better collective understanding of how to protect and preserve the tremendous opportunities that the development of cyberspace offers us all.

It is hoped that the ideas and proposals which emerge from the conference will help develop a common vision for cyberspace as an essential foundation for opportunity and growth within the global economy.
