Brexit for Beginners (is that all of us?)
Join a panel of leading independent experts discussing the significant long term implications of Brexit for IT in the UK on 14 September at BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT, London offices, located near Covent Garden.
The event entitled ‘Brexit for Beginners’ hosted by the North London Branch of BCS, in association with BCS Elite Specialist Group, will examine what the IT-related implications of the potential breakaway of the UK from the European Union might be.
The presenters will consider how Brexit could affect the world in terms of IT in terms of society, business, geographical locations, information, data governance, communications, infrastructure, systems, applications, processes, regulations, security, risk management - and more.
Dalim Basu, Chair of the BCS North London Branch says: “The digital environment is crucial to the long term success of the UK outside the European Union and there is uncertainty about the impact of Brexit on UK digital economy, innovation and entrepreneurs. This event will explore some of these issues and we welcome anyone interested to come along and share views about this important topic.”
