Our Autumn School should be of immediate interest to anyone who has responsibility within IT, for managing, specifying, designing, procuring, recommending, setting policy, or running projects. With new legislation coming into effect early in 2010, that will affect every IT service provider and installation down to the size of a small Local Council, BCS Bristol have brought this School forward to the Autumn, so that you can understand not only how to comply with your new responsibilities, but just as importantly, how to save your organization money!
