Delivering a successful Digital Policing Strategy by 2025

The establishment of the Police Digital Service is of serious importance. This series will examine its prospects in a period that will certainly be challenging in public expenditure terms. Covid 19 has produced a revolution in digital working, the implications of which are not yet fully understood, but when threats to organisations and systems from cyber malevolence are growing fast, technology can deliver safety, security and efficiency. It is impossible, however, to be sure of fool-proof performance by the human beings who plan, run and respond to digital systems.

Think. Data for Government

Date: 12th May 2021
The year of worldwide public health emergency has also proved to be the year of data. Not only has the general public had a crash course in statistical literacy, but Government has been increasingly active in furthering the use of data and AI. Over the last year a number of crucial papers have been published including the National Data Strategy, the Geospatial Strategy, and guidelines for acquiring, building and using AI capabilities in the public sector.
It’s clear that data and information is now the number one asset for public sector organisations wishing to transform outcomes for citizens, and there is huge excitement about the possibilities. 

This conference will look at the opportunities and challenges for public bodies and their suppliers, hearing from a diverse range of exciting speakers about current thinking and best practices.
