The inquiry is looking into what needs to be done to ensure connected tech is safe and secure for its users.
The Minister will face questions on issues raised so far during the inquiry, including the Department’s role in cybersecurity and supporting the digital economy, the regulation of artificial intelligence and the implications of the changing way in which technology is being used in the creative industries.
