ICE/PSWD - Your z/OS Image Sentry
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.

The ABC's of z/OS Integrity
Presenter- Richard Faulhaber - NewEra Software, Inc.
​Find out how IBM established integrity within the z/OS system starting over 40 years ago beginning with its statement of integrity. We delve into how z/OS continues to be the trusted computing base that is depended upon by so many businesses and institutions for critical applications and data.

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.

What's Currently Happening with Continuous Delivery on the z/OS stack?
Presenter - Marna Walle - IBM
You probably have been hearing a lot about Agile development and how z/OS is embracing it. This has resulted in more functions entering the marketplace earlier. The session will talk about what IBM is doing on the z/OS platform. You will learn about where to find new functions, so that hopefully you can start exploiting them sooner!

Securing Your Crypto Infrastructure
Presenter - Greg Boyd - MainframeCrypto
Out of the box, ICSF does not provide a lot of security for your crypto resources. However, over the years, IBM has added plenty of security and with the roll-out of data set encryption protecting those resources is even more important. We'll talk about the obvious: protecting keys and APIs and we'll talk about the Key Store Policies that provide even more security.
