This will begin in July 2019 and will build on the analysis undertaken for the Scoping Report.</p><p>In Phase 2, the Law Commission will review existing communications offences to establish whether the law is fit for purpose, and make specific recommendations about options for reform in this area. This will include considering whether co-ordinated harassment by groups of people online could be more effectively dealt with by the criminal law.</p><p>The Law Commission will also look at the criminal law around the non-consensual taking and sharing of intimate images. The review will look at existing offences and identify whether there are any gaps in the scope of the protection already offered to victims, making recommendations to ensure that the criminal law provides consistent and effective protection against the creation and sharing of intimate images without consent.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises that the internet is increasingly a greater aspect of citizens' daily lives, such as through the growing prevalence of Internet of Things (IoT) devices. We recognise that compromised internet-connected devices can result in many forms of harm to the individual and the wider economy, and as such, we take the security of these devices very seriously. In recent months we have been focusing attention on securing connected ‘smart’ devices for use in the home.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>In May 2019, the Government launched a consultation on proposed regulation for consumer internet-connected devices. This advocated for a minimum security baseline centred around mandating the top three guidelines of the Code of Practice for Consumer IoT Security, published by the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport in October 2018.</p><p><strong> </strong></p><p>We are now working through the wide array of responses to the consultation to further refine our policy proposals and will publish a formal consultation response and final regulatory proposal later this year.</p><p> </p>

This includes establishing a new statutory duty of care to make companies take more responsibility for the safety of their users. Compliance with this duty of care will be overseen and enforced by an independent regulator. Companies will be held to account for tackling a comprehensive set of online harms, including cyberbullying. Alongside the White Paper, the government also published the Social Media Code of Practice, which sets out actions that the Government believes social media platforms should take to prevent bullying, insulting, intimidating and humiliating behaviours on their sites.</p> more like this
