There are two major technology trends which are in the news, the first is how we are using apps for everything in daily life and the second is cyber security and how to stay safe.
This high profile series of events held on the first Wednesday of every month, focused on exploring this question. The events will facilitate two speakers, two product/services demonstrations, exhibition stands, founders meetup area, music/entertainment and refreshments. Starting at 5.30pm and ending at 8pm. This months theme is:
Building Apps & Digital Security
15 years ago, Guy Mucklow and Jamie Turner setup PCA Predict (formerly Postcode Anywhere), having recognised the potential of using the internet to provide a much more efficient means of delivering data. PCA Predict is now a market leading provider of cloud-based address management services, processing millions of transactions for some of the largest global organisations on ecommerce sites and CRM systems.
In July 2015 Postcode Anywhere rebranded as 'PCA Predict' to reflect our international expansion and growing range of products. 'Postcode Anywhere' was often abbreviated to 'PCA' so this is a nod to our origins while 'Predict' neatly describes what products like Capture+ (address finder) and Triggar (Big Data analytics, currently under development) do. While our name and website has changed, you can still expect the innovation, great products and quality of service.
Michael and James stated the business. Michael, is the Chief Technical Officer, has been involved in numerous projects as part of the Cyber Apprenticeship Development Scheme (CADS). James, the Chief Operations Officer, has gained extensive work experience in cyber security industry such as helping to design and assemble the National Cyber Skills Centre (NCSC) and has reviewed the syllabus for a new cyber security GCSE as part of the CADS. Additionaly, he has worked with Erasmus students from the European Union (EU) and visited the University of Jyväskylä (EU's specialist in cyber security) as an ambassador for the CADS.
