IIC’s winter TMF held in Washington was a star-studded event, with keynotes from the White House, the FCC chair, major industry players and key regulators. It was hosted by Verizon Communications.

DIGITAL OPPORTUNITIES FOR ALL AMERICANS
Three keynote presentations kicked off the event with an overview of the goals and priorities of the current administration. Grace Koh, special assistant to the president for technology, telecom, and cybersecurity policy, said that protecting the free flow of data is the primary technology policy priority for the Trump administration. The tangible and intangible benefits of data flows outweigh the risks: as every company becomes a digital company, these benefits are realised across the entire economy. The commitment towards unfettered data flows remains firm despite the rise of terrorist activity and the threat of cybersecurity breaches, as the US stance on security continues to evolve.
