z/OS Security and Integrity Essentials Bootcamp
Participants will expand their knowledge of how z/OS integrity plays a critical part in the overall system and data security of their organization. The presenters will begin by providing an overview of z/OS integrity, and then lead participants through a series of lecture and demo sessions focused on the skills needed to perform their own integrity/security review including tools available, an integrity plan, common findings, remediation and the ever-increasing importance of Cryptography. This class is not only for security administrators — it is geared towards individuals that need an understanding of how security and integrity are interconnected to comply with regulations around data privacy, integrity or just getting a better audit review next time around!
- Recognize how z/OS integrity plays a critical part in the system and data security of their organization.
- Define the skills needed to perform an effective integrity/security review.
- Discuss the importance of Cryptography and the role it plays.
