    Carol is pleased to be joined for this Coffee with Carol by friend and former colleague Jeff Uehling, current Chief Security Architect for IBM i. Jeff and Carol will be discussing a number of the recent Security Vulnerabilities which have had a huge, industry-wide impact on both hardware and software vendors - including IBM and the IBM i development groups. These security vulnerabilities include well-publicized ones such as Heartbleed, Bash/Shellshock and Poodle as well as numerous vulnerabilities that haven’t hit the media. These vulnerabilities exist in areas such as Java, OpenSSL and many networking areas of your systems.

    IBM i has long been known as a secure platform on which you can run your business critical applications. However, securing the system requires careful attention to the system-wide security configuration options, managing the authority settings on your data objects which contain your business critical data (corporate assets), and - as importantly - staying current with your enterprise-wide maintenance and ensure the latest PTFs/Fixes are installed in order to close "real" or "potential" security holes.

    Protecting your data from viruses or malicious code is not an unfamiliar concept, but understanding how these threats can affect your Power Systems server may not be as easy to grasp.

    There are many myths about viruses and IBM i—including the belief that the system is immune. Many Power Systems managers still don’t see viruses as a risk because they see them as a Windows threat. While this was once true, today’s connected environments operate under different rules.

    It’s time to take action and protect IBM i and the network that connects to it. This on-demand webinar will help you gain an understanding of the relationships between:

    • Viruses and the integrated file system (IFS)
    • Power Systems and Windows viruses
    • PC-based anti-virus scanning vs native IBM i scanning
    There are a number of ways you can minimize your exposure to viruses. Learn the facts to ensure you're fully-protected.
