8:00pm: IBM i security "inside the firewall"

Justin Loeber
Kisco Systems

Presentation Description

Security is too often viewed as an "IT problem" that should be left to the IT department. Specifically, the "firewall guys." Assuming the IBM i is safe just because it's behind a corporate firewall ignores the many risks that are alive and well inside the network. So let's change the language. Instead of "security" let's talk about "data protection" and "business continuity." In this session we'll discuss what this means for developers, data owners and administrators. Specifically:
- Best practices when sharing the IFS in an application workflow
- Dealing with the proliferation of ad-hoc ODBC and SQL query tools
- Monitoring for CPU load, disk space and more
