eSkills Malta Foundation marks IT Professionals Day
 
In support of the IT Professionals Day the eSkills Malta Foundation organised an informal table discussion on the IT Profession and a Code of Conduct.

The topic was discussed by a number of highly credited individuals from the IT Profession, academia and business namely:

Profs Ernest Cachia – University of Malta; Mr Conrad Vassallo – MCAST; Mr Gian Carlo MIllo – ISACA Malta Chapter; Dr Brian Warrington – Computer Society Malta; Mr Duncan Dimech – BCS Malta Section; Eng. Saviour Baldacchino – Malta Chamber of Engineers; Mr Marcel Cutajar – Chamber of Commerce; and Ms Elizabeth Olivieri – MITA.

In broad terms, the panel agreed that a Steering Group should be set up, followed by the consolidation of the IT profession. This would then lead to the regulation of the IT Profession which could include the setting up a warrant or Charter for the IT profession.
