The credit crunch and financial turmoil of 2008 is generating a major shift in social attitudes. This shift may lead to a change in the legal and regulatory climate; objectively measurable factors, such as turnover and profit may become less important, whilst less tangible factors such as risk management, social responsibility and sustainability may take centre stage.

The information and communication technologies are at the heart of all modern business and governmental activity, and so changes in legislative or regulatory approach will inevitably address the use and workings of those technologies. The Policy Forum will explore the directions in which law and regulation might change, and attempt to identify the likely effects on technology users and subjects.
