7. Digital technologies and counter-terrorism

You are not expected to answer every question in this consultation. Rather, you are welcome to focus just on the questions and topics which are of most interest to you. Where appropriate we would encourage you to illustrate your thoughts with reference to evidence from your own personal or professional experience as well as to research or other relevant data.

Responses can be any length and can be accompanied by copies of relevant documents. Responses will not be made public. However, in its eventual report the Commission will acknowledge all the responses which it receives and will almost certainly wish to quote from some of them, with permission.
