BCS launches qualification to prepare public sector for Freedom of Information

The British Computer Society has responded to concerns that public bodies are not prepared for the forthcoming Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by launching a new qualification, targeted at those responsible for enforcing the Act.

The Certificate in Freedom of Information, from the Society's Information Systems Examination Board (ISEB), is the first and only qualification available in the subject area and was created following demand by IT practitioners looking to ensure their organisations are compliant with the forthcoming legislation.
