Abstract

Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is fundamental to the delivery and support of all aspects of society in addition to significantly contributing directly to each nation’s GDP. This briefing captures key actions and requirements for the domain in the light of the UK’s decision to exit the EU. It is based on the views of ICT and other professionals from the UK and internationally. It makes the case that the UK Government needs to work overtly with a wide range of ICT experts to ensure that laws are optimized for the ICT domain and that there are targeted policies and funding strategies to support and grow the ICT domain through this change. In addition, it raises the significance of international cooperation in particular to meet environmental and ICT ethical challenges.
