Major events, including the United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union, adoption of a new transatlantic data protection framework, and the planned transition of ICANN to global stewardship, have the potential to deeply affect the global regulatory environment for tech and communications. The panel, “The Future of Digital Policy in the Global Economy,” at this year’s TPI Aspen Forum, scheduled for August 21-23 in Aspen, Colorado, will bring together thought leaders to discuss emerging issues of digital regulation and competition regionally and globally. Topics include Europe’s post-Brexit Digital Single Market, the upcoming ITU conferences, implementation of 5G spectrum, the “internet of things”, antitrust, privacy, cyber security, zero-rating, the Global Connect initiative, and many more topical and controversial issues that will help determine the future of the world’s economy.

Wolfgang Kopf, Senior Vice President for Group Public and Regulatory Affairs, Deutsche Telekom AG
The Honorable Julie Brill, Partner and Co-Leader, Privacy and Cybersecurity Practice, Hogan Lovells LLP
Adam Kovacevich, Senior Director, U.S. Public Policy, Google
