ICE Update
Presenter - Paul Robichaux - NewEra Software, Inc.
We all fear something! Generally, an event that is unplanned for, something that takes us by surprise and knocks us off “Our Game”. As a z/OS professional, you know exactly what the impact of such an unimagined, unforeseen event can have of the operational integrity and Data security of your IT environment. What to do? We suggest you focus on building up your z/OS defenses in depth, for better protection, better detection.

In this 45-minute webcast, we will introduce you to “Active Measures” (AM), a set of unique z/OS system management tools that extend your perimeter user authentication methodology to better guard against unauthorized access to authorized programs. We believe your users are an untapped resource; “AM” gets them involved in the defense of z/OS.
