Digital Festival celebrates global reach

Leeds Digital Festival has closed its virtual doors following a successful, two-week online celebration, which saw 134 events take place over 10 days.

A range of high-profile events took place, including the launch of The Online Safety Technology Industry Association (OSTIA), a new industry body which is designed to highlight the importance of online safety technology in the current environment.

Key leaders in the space, including Sarah Connolly, director of security and online harms at DCMS and Adam Hildreth, founder and CEO at Leeds-based Crisp, came together online to launch this as part of the festival.
