BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, is committed to making IT good for society. We use the power of our network to bring about positive, tangible change. We champion the global IT profession and the interests of individuals, engaged in that profession, for the benefit of all.
The Chartered Institute of Information Security provides a focal point for the profession, working tirelessly to raise the standards of professionalism with the industry and promote the growth of talent available to government and business alike. We work with academia to help develop new courses and entry-routes into the profession, as well as corporate and government organisations to promote the growth of talent in the workplace. In doing so, we aim to provide a universally-accepted focal point for the information security profession.
Securious is a cyber security compliance company based at the Exeter Science Park. We help companies protect themselves against cyber threats using Payment Card Industry (PCI), ISO27001 and Cyber Essentials compliance. We are the only PCI QSA company and Cyber Essentials Certification body in the South West and work with clients including universities, utilities companies, Government organisation and numerous private companies both in the region and nationally.
The South West WARP was created in 2008, with assistance from central government, in order to bring together IT security expertise from local authorities in a regional forum. The group meets quarterly at Buckfast Abbey conference centre in Devon, with representatives from LAs ranging from Cornwall to Gloucestershire and Dorset, plus Police, Fire, Ambulance, some NHS and universities.
