Event description:

Given there is a three year lag-time from students joining to graduating, what are the emerging security requirements from employers coming down the employment opportunity pipeline? This event ties into the CEP conference which is an opportunity to discuss the challenges and opportunities. CEP is aimed at practitioners and researchers in computing education, both within Computing departments and elsewhere. The conference provides a platform to share and discuss issues, and how they apply to computing education. This talk from a leading computer security consultancy firm provides insight for conference delegates and BCS members.
