Berkshire is a great place for anyone interested in computing and IT. The BCS Berkshire branch committee is enthusiastic about organizing events and talks on new IT topics and trends. We are committed to working with local organisations, schools and colleges to raise the profile of computing and IT in the local area, to children, students and adults. Keep an eye on our Events page for upcoming events. Most events are free so come along and bring your friends!

    BCS Elite and the Institute of Directors present: “The Business Impact of Technology“.

    Are you missing out on a 20% increase in sales and revenue? Businesses are seeing up to 20% growth in Sales and Revenue through using new technology and data. Can you increase your competitiveness? At the same time, the press is rife of stories about the abuse, misuse and security of information.

    IOD Berkshire and ELITE Thames Valley bring together both sides to allow an open and frank discussion on how to take advantage of the data that you own and new “free” data available to you. This is also a great time to consider at a board level the new regulation from next year (2017). This can penalise companies up to 4% of global revenue for data breaches.
