FarrPoint’s connectivity survey is back this year, and after talking to dozens of local and combined authority digital teams across England, Wales and Scotland, we are about to launch our second report. The 2024 survey primarily focused on connectivity priorities and barries within UK local authority areas, but also explored the role of digital champions, digital adoption and smart technologies. In the new report, we are comparing year on year results and drawing common themes across the UK.
We invited four of the survey respondents to talk more about their views on this panel.

As government and industry partner to achieve net zero by 2050, opportunities to develop the digital framework to underpin a smart, flexible energy sector emerge. The energy sector of the future will comprise millions of assets ranging from solar panels to heat pumps, with smart technologies in between. These technologies will play a crucial role in optimising operations and reducing energy consumption and costs by visualising real time energy consumption, tapping into demand side response to shift electricity use at peak times and access the lowest energy prices.

Corporate governance and cyber risk are becoming increasingly intertwined as the world becomes more digitised. In response to this, DSIT has published a call for views on a proposed Cyber Governance Code of Practice which seeks to inform directors, non-executive directors, and senior leaders about the actions they need to take to ensure their organisations are resilient to threats.
DSIT is inviting stakeholders from across the economy and society to provide feedback on the proposed Code, to understand if the cyber risks are presented and explained in a way that is straightforward and can be implemented.
The scope of the call for views is focused around three particular issues:
- the design of the cyber governance Code of Practice;
- how the UK government can drive uptake of its use and compliance with the code; and
- the merits and demand for an assurance process against the Code.
Jack Harrigan is Head of Cyber Governance and Accountability at the Department for Science, Innovation and Technology. He is part of the Cyber Resilience team that improves resilience to cyber risks across the UK economy. Jack leads work on embedding cyber into existing corporate governance and business regulations and driving senior leaders to govern cyber risk more effectively. Jack has a decade of experience in government and has previously worked on the UK GDPR and the free flow of personal data.
John Maguire is the Head of Cyber Resilience and Incentives at the Department of Science, Innovation, and Technology, focusing on improving the management and prioritisation of cyber risk within organisations across the UK economy. He has worked for government for over 15 years, which includes central government, devolved government, and executive agency experience. Prior to his current role, he was working on UK digital trade policy and negotiations.
The call for views will close on 19th March.
