BCS Systems Forum Event  : “We’re working to put things right” - Lessons from the TSB and VISA failures

Date: 03/07/2018 7.30pm The Cock Hotel, Wellington

Booking Link:

We have just had two big and public IT failures, with TSB grabbing the main headlines.  There are many lessons to be learnt from taking a closer look at these incidents namely Project Management, Testing and last by not least Privacy Control. Mike Jackson will lead us on this journey and has much experience in all these areas, particularly around Privacy.

Speaker: Mike Jackson

Mike Jackson is a Fellow of BCS - The Chartered Institute for IT and a member of the IEEE. He is now retired but in his working life held the role of professor at the University of Wolverhampton and subsequently Birmingham City University (BCU). At BCU he worked as Head of the Department of Computing and later as Director of Academic Quality and Enhancement in the Business School. He continues to have involvement with the academic accreditation of Universities and moderates papers for the BCS HEQ examinations. He was invited to give evidence to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee on technical issues associated with the Investigatory Powers Act in December 2015.
