Chartered IT Professional - An Assessor's View

04/09/2012 - 18:45

Speaker: John Easton, IBM

Venue: VIth Form Common Room, St Joseph's College, Swindon. map

BCS Wiltshire Branch's next meeting is designed to be of interest particularly to those thinking of applying for the award of Chartered IT Professional (CITP) status or who, at this stage, just want to find out more about this significant step forward on the professional 'ladder'!

A recent study from the EU suggests that while there is insufficient penetration of ICT skills across the labour force as a whole, the UK is ahead of the average of other European countries in most areas of IT skills provision. In a skills rich environment, how can you differentiate yourself? The means to prove experience, ability and breadth of knowledge could make all the difference in helping you develop your career. Chartered IT Professional status is certainly one such demonstration. Do you want to know more about chartered status or understand the realities of the assessment process? This session, given John Easton of IBM, will give you an insider's view of what the process entails and how to best prepare for your next career development step. John should know what he's talking about since he's been an assessor for CITP since the early days of the assessment scheme.

Advanced Evasions Techniques (AETs) - The NEW threat

01/11/2011 - 19:30
01/11/2011 - 21:00

Venue: Plymouth University

Speaker: Alan Cottom Stonesoft

This event is jointly organised with the Institute of Information Security Professionals.

Evasion techniques are a means to disguise and/or modify cyber attacks to avoid detection and blocking by information security systems. Evasions enable advanced and hostile cyber criminals to deliver any malicious content, exploit or attack to a vulnerable system without detection that would normally be detected and stopped. Advanced Evasions take this threat to an entirely new level.

In order to ensure suitable venue size and catering, we ask all attendees to book for each branch event via the website.

BCS South West events are open to everyone, eligible for CPD and (unless otherwise indicated) free of charge. The pre-booking system is only used to allow rooms and catering to be arranged. Please note that most presentations will now be video-recorded and we aim to make videos available via our website shortly after each event.

Full details of the forthcoming branch events and maps are available from the BCS South West Branch website.
