It was always unrealistic to assume that the technology companies providing social media, chat and gaming services would act unilaterally to police the online world and most will welcome a clear legal definition of harms and clarity on their statutory duty of care, says PA Consulting.


We welcome the Government’s commitment to providing a clear regulatory standard that protects all citizens from online harms. 

It was always unrealistic to assume that the technology companies providing social media, chat and gaming services would act unilaterally to police the online world and most will welcome a clear legal definition of harms and clarity on their statutory duty of care. 

The new regulatory framework also provides an opportunity to look at how these companies could use the power of their technologies to educate and alert young people using their services to the risks they face, giving them better information to manage their own safety through a digital equivalent of the ‘Green Cross Code’.
