Navigating the Online Safety Act with SQR's Digital Identity Solution

In a landmark move, the UK recently entered a new era of digital safeguarding, with royal assent granted to the Online Safety Bill last month. As the dust settles on the six-year legal journey of the bill, regulator Ofcom has swiftly released initial draft Codes of Practice under this groundbreaking Act.

The Pillars of Protection

The Codes of Practice recently unveiled by Ofcom encompass crucial areas including child protection, tackling fraud and combating anti-terrorism activities. The timing is critical, as these Codes are set to be enforced next year, in an aim to make the UK “the safest place in the world to be online.”

Enforcement and Penalties

With non-compliance penalties looming, including substantial fines of up to £18 million or 10% of global annual revenue, and potential imprisonment for company owners in certain circumstances, the imperative to protect vulnerable individuals and ensure platform integrity has never been more pronounced.
