Welcome to BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT,Isle of Man Section website. Our section was created on the 7th of July 2004 as an international section of the BCS as per other jurisdictions such as Jersey, Guernsey, Switzerland and Hong Kong.
Our Section holds either a professional or social event each month from September to June. There may also be impromptu social events in July and August. Our events are normally open to non-members.
Our forthcoming events are published on our web site and if you happen to be on the Isle of Man at a time coinciding with an open event please join us. If you are a BCS member and regular visitor to the island or would like to register with the Section anyway, then please update your details held by the BCS.
Smart buildings and offices face challenges including poor employee and member reporting functionality, unauthorised entries, impersonal front-of-house service, lack of synchronicity between decentralised premises, functions and poor visitor management. All of these pose a threat not only to security, but also to the level of employee satisfaction, as well as a duty of care in high rise buildings.
