The Telecommunications (Security) Bill: the rollercoaster ride continues
11 December 2020
On 24 November 2020, the Telecommunications (Security) Bill (the Bill) was introduced by the UK Government into Parliament.
As anticipated, the Bill seeks to introduce a new regulatory framework for telecommunications security in the UK. The Bill would place stronger security-related duties and responsibilities on telecoms companies and would grant Ofcom, the UK’s communications regulator, new enforcement powers.
