    Sounds interesting as security is the area I am presently considering going into long term.
    Shame that all breaks and networking sessions would go like this:
    "So what do you do/who do you work for?"
    Me: "I'm a customer service chump and don't even have my first I.T job yet"

    I wouldn't approach it with pre-conceived ideas. Generally BCS meetings are pretty well attended and run. If you have concerns or are interested I suggest you make contact with them - you may be pleasantly surprised !

    The BCS (or the IET) aren't there just for people already in IT, they are there for a wide range of people - for people who want to get into IT to CIO's (and above) :)

    You don't need to be a member of the BCS to attend this
