ICE/PSWD - Discussion and Demo
Presenter - Paul Robichaux - NewEra Software, Inc.
The recent Verizon DBI* Report reveals that 81% of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen and/or weak user passwords? Now is the time to enlist your User Community in the common-sense defense of the z/OS mainframe perimeter. Find out how NewEra’s latest suite of tools - ICE/PSWD - can bridge that gap between your security environment and your users, especially your Privileged Users. 

ICE/PSWD can be tailored to provide real-time notifications of logons and password changes - all the time, or during off-hours, when a hacker is ready to strike – for everyone, or for just those mission-critical, Privileged Few. ICE/PSWD provides simple to manage, mainframe-based, software-only Multi-Factor Logon and Password Reset capabilities. No smart-cards, tokens, or phone-apps needed. ICE/PSWD also provides tools to aid in enforcing the creation of stronger passwords, and much more. Join us to find out how ICE/PSWD can defend your z/OS Mainframe perimeter.

Preparing for Your Next Upgrade of z/OS
Presenter - Richard Faulhaber - NewEra Software, Inc.​
If you haven't already started, you will be planning for the next upgrade of z/OS. What will you need to change in your system? Which system datasets will need to move; which can be left behind? How do you know what will be needed? What will need to be changed in your upgrade? NewEra Software’s Integrity Controls Environment (ICE) has the tools to help you get the answers to those questions and many other questions about your z/OS configuration.

Thursdays at 2 pm EDT (11 am PDT)
ICE - Elevate Your Control and Awareness
Presenter - Paul Robichaux - NewEra Software, Inc.
The Integrity Controls Environment (ICE) has become an essential tool for Z organizations and their support staff. Our shared goal is to elevate their level of control and awareness of activity that may create unwanted and unexpected results in a z/OS Sysplex, an LPAR and/or an application that is needed to sustain the business objectives.

In this one-hour webcast, we will provide an overview of ICE capabilities, specifically identifying those that can easily provide ongoing assessment of the z/OS mainframe environment. Stop S047 is but one of these capabilities.

How mainframe integrity breaches can undermine your security systems.
The differences between penetration testing and vulnerability management.
