Adding Depth To Your IBM i Security Bench
June 28, 2021 Bill Hammond
Carol Woodbury of DXR Security is fond of saying that the IBM i platform is “securable” but not necessarily always secure, and the difference between the two is what people do and don’t do to actually use security tools. But there is more to security than the IBM i operating system and its system software.
As Woodbury will explain in a webcast being hosted on June 30, the most effective approach to cybersecurity is having multiple layers of defense mechanisms deployed to protect your systems. This is commonly referred to as “Defense in Depth.”
Because your IBM i platform holds data that is vital to your business, implementing multiple IBM i technologies that will help prevent or detect an accidental error or malicious behavior is essential.
So watch our webcast, where Woodbury will discuss three of the current real-world issues facing organizations today and how layering multiple security technologies can protect your data and avoid business disruptions.
Register to hear about:
- The benefits of implementing defense in depth.
- Determining the value and risk level of your data.
- Developing a plan to implement as many layers as needed to appropriately reduce risk.
The webcast will go live on Wednesday, June 30 at noon Eastern. You can register at this link. We hope that you will.
