How Secure Is Your Mainframe, Really?
Project and Program: Enterprise Data Center
, Security and Compliance
, SHARE in Atlanta 2012
There is a long-held belief that the mainframe is inherently secure. Is this true, or is it a comfortable myth that allows us to neglect it? In this experience-based presentation, the speakers de-mystify mainframe security and identify conditions that they have seen that greatly impair mainframe security. Conditions that may exist in your mainframe security implementation, represent significant impairment of privacy and SOX compliance, and offer plenty of opportunities for insider fraud and abuse, either directly or through compromise of a privileged account. The presentation finishes with guidance on how you can check your current state and remediate risky conditions that you may find.
