    If anyone wants to head for Bournemouth on Weds 18th November we have a BCS meeting open to all :

    ISEB Exams : The Examiner's View

    The ISEB run a large number of professional qualifications in a wide range of areas. They are split into four main areas each sub-divided into two sectors. This talk will look at the overall structure and then take a more detailed look at the security sector where the exams Andy Taylor (speaker) helps to manage lie.

    Andy will look at the principles behind the three security exams, their structures and then discuss what the examiner is looking for in each of the exams. There will be ample time for questions at the end.

    He was for five years the Chief Examiner for the OGC's best practice in programme management Managing Successful Programmes (MSP™) as well as assessing training organisations, trainers and their course materials in PRINCE2® and MSP™. He is one of a small team of examiners who now run the current three examinations in security for the ISEB – Information Security Management Principles, Practitioner Certificate in Risk Management and Practitioner Certificate in Business Continuity. The examinations team wrote a book published by BCS in support of the ISMP qualification in 2008 and Andy was the book's Editor.

    He now spends his time split between examination and assessment duties for ISEB and APMG and with doing the job for real where he is helping organisations, mainly in central government, to do things better. He has worked for many clients including the Home Office, Ministry of Defence, Met Police, Passport Service, Treasury Solicitors, NHS and a number of commercial organisations. He is a Chartered Information Technology Professional (CITP) and Fellow of the BCS, a Fellow of the Association for Project Management (APM) and has been accredited by CGHQ at Cheltenham to provide security advice to government departments since 1999 when the CLAS scheme was first instigated.

    This was a most enjoyable event and the speaker, Andy Taylor, presented a very good overview of ISEB qualifications and their place in the market.

    The most important point that came across was that they are (particularly at Foundation level) aimed at the non-technical. As such they are a very good addition to provide a "business" perspective on IT topics that can fit on top of technical knowledge. Foundation certificates are also particularly aimed at new entrants to IT to provide an overview of a subject.
