Digital Britain is the UK government’s strategic vision for the UK digital economy. While social inclusion and rights protection are major themes, the plans will also have a significant impact on businesses. In stimulating investment in faster and more pervasive broadband access, Digital Britain will encourage the distribution and virtualisation of functions within businesses and further interconnectivity between organisations, their customers, suppliers and employees, wherever they are located. Businesses need to be aware that this will affect security and risk, and they should be taking steps now to minimise any harmful impact.

The internet has changed the way we all work. Many employees can now access core business applications from anywhere – especially at home or on the move. This revolution has also opened these applications to many external users, leading to much reduced inter-company interaction times and more efficient business processes. The UK government’s Digital Britain strategy will extend the network further, requiring businesses to take positive action to protect their resources.
