WORKSHOP: Applying IBM i Security

Part 1:  Effectively Addressing Security in the IFS – including Avoiding Malware
Stop ignoring the security settings in the IFS!  The fundamentals of IBM i security still apply.  During this session, Carol will describe why it’s important to secure the IFS (and stop ignoring it!) and how securing the IFS is the same as securing objects in libraries as well as how it differs.  She will then provide examples of proven techniques for protecting data in the IFS.  Carol will also describe how the IFS can be vulnerable to malware (including ransomware) and describe options for reducing that risk.
Part 2:  Getting the Most out of IBM i Security
IBM i is full of security features for you to implement.  Many are obvious as to how you’d use them but not so obvious as to why.  Other features remain a mystery altogether.  During this session, Carol will describe practical uses of the newest features of V7R2 and V7R3 including Row and Column Access Control (RCAC) and Authority Collections.   Then Carol will explain some commands and features that are not as well-known and explain how and why you’d use them.  Features include Application Administration, security-related views in QSYS2, little-known features of the audit journal and commands such as Print Profile Internals (PRTPRFINT) and Grant User Authority (GRTUSRAUT).
