    Building a quality culture: a conspiracy of excellence

    Dublin: 18:00 – 19:30, Belfast: 12:15 -13:45

    Dublin and Belfast


    SoftTest in association with the ISA Software Skillnet presents
     
    Talk: ‘Building a quality culture. A conspiracy of excellence’
    Speaker: Fergal O’Riordan
    Location: Dublin and Belfast
     
    Dublin Event:
    IBEC, 84/86 Lower Baggot Street, Dublin 2
    Date and time: Wednesday, 17th February 6pm – 7.30pm (limited number of tickets available)

    Registration is here. 

     
    Belfast Event:
    Clayton Hotel Belfast (Formerly The Holiday Inn), 22-26 Ormeau Avenue, Belfast, BT2 8HS (Map)
    Date and time: Thursday, 18th February 12:15pm – 1:45pm

    Registration is here.

     

    If we address quality in terms of test cases passed we have lost half our audience and have little to say to the top table. What effects quality within the SDLC are the influences beyond the SDLC. Believing that culture is the game changer, Fergal will explore how changing the mind-set of your organisation has more impact on quality than any process improvement initiatives, and may be a precursor to it.

    Building a conspiracy of excellence amongst the dedicated few, can be understood and supported by senior management and becomes an unstoppable force for quality.

    Certified Cloud Security Professional Training


    Espion Training Centre Sandyford, Dublin 18


    FREE iPAD MINI – Pre loaded with course materials

    Backed by the two leading non-profits focused on cloud and information security, the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) and (ISC)², the CCSP credential denotes professionals with deep-seated knowledge and competency derived from hands-on experience with information security and cloud computing. CCSPs help you achieve the highest standard for cloud security expertise and enable your organisation to benefit from the power of cloud computing while keeping sensitive data secure. The CCSP credential reflects deeper knowledge derived from hands-on information security and cloud computing experience. It validates practical know-how applicable to those professionals whose day-to-day responsibilities involve cloud security architecture, design, operations, and service orchestration.

    As powerful as cloud computing is for the organisation, understanding its information security risks and mitigation strategies is critical. Legacy approaches are inadequate, and organizations need competent, experienced professionals equipped with the right cloud security knowledge and skills to be successful. CCSP defines the qualifications and experience necessary to competently secure cloud services. Ultimately, it provides a new benchmark for cloud security knowledge and competence, and is viewed as the most reliable indicator of overall proficiency in cloud security.

    The CCSP is most appropriate for those whose day-to-day responsibilities involve procuring, securing, and managing cloud environments or purchased cloud services and ideally suited to professionals working in positions such as, but not limited to:
