Wednesdays, August 14 and 28 at 2 pm EDT (11 am PDT)
Protecting Your Critical UNIX Files on z/OS
Should you be doing more to protect your critical UNIX files on z/OS? Changes being made could potentially affect the operational integrity of the applications that require those UNIX files. Yes, you have those protected by your ESM product, but what if a change is made by a valid user? When are you informed of that change? Who is informed of the change? Was a backup or recovery point made of the old and new file content? Was the change made to the content of the file or to the Permissions assigned to the file, or both?
See how the Integrity Controls Environment (ICE) can provide that extra level of protection to your most critical UNIX files.

Alternating Thursdays at 12 pm EDT (9 am PDT) and 2 pm EDT (11 am PDT)
ICE Tips and Tricks
As a user of the Integrity Controls Environment (ICE), you have access to a very capable and unique set of services and tools to help manage your z/OS environment. But are you fully aware of the new features and benefits that are available within ICE? Did you know there are now commands that allow for fast access to information and data collected by the ICE applications and services? There are also new inspection points to ensure operational readiness and accuracy of your IPL configuration, including more analysis to such areas as CSA usage and your External Security Manager, and user activity. 

Alternating Thursdays at 12 pm EDT (9 am PDT) and 2 pm EDT (11 am PDT)
A Heads Up on ABEND S047
