    Two seasoned IBM i security pros, Robin Tatam and Amy Williams of HelpSystems, will lead a discussion around: Security tools built into the operating system itself Options for augmenting the operating system’s security Ways to bolster your staff’s security expertise

    Cybersecurity is blazing hot and for good reason! There has never been a time when technology was under greater threat of attack and the consequences can be devastating. 

    Yet, many shops running IBM i have barely applied the basics when it comes to securing their server and data. Excuses abound, ranging from the assurances of firewall protection to a lack of skilled resources and simply not knowing how to proceed.  

    Attend this free session to achieve game-changing clarity on three primary facets of IBM i security (and enhance your own career prospects in the process).

    Two seasoned IBM i security pros, Robin Tatam and Amy Williams of HelpSystems, will lead a discussion around:

    • Security tools built into the operating system itself
    • Options for augmenting the operating system’s security

    In this iSee, we will look at an automated way to create a set of views over a number of physical files.

    When is comes to modernizing your applications, it can be a very daunting task.  This also include modernizing your data. We know that there are still many physical files out in the wild and converting them to a new DDL based table while can be very freeing, is a huge task. The good news, is using Views, you can start to unlock that data and not have to also modernize that applications that have been using these physical files.  In this iSee, we will look at an automated way to create a set of views over a number of physical files. This will not only give you this automated process, but we then also talk about leveraging these View in new ways.

    Depending on which regulatory or governmental entities cover your industry, you may soon need to implement an IBM i multi-factor authentication system.

    Security breaches caused by compromised passwords are driving IBM i shops to implement stronger user authentication practices, such as multi-factor authentication (MFA).   

    Many regulatory standards—such as PCI DSS, GDPR, and CCPA—also require user authentication techniques found in multi-factor authentication (MFA) and two-factor authentication (2FA) systems. And governmental entities such as the United States government are mandating MFA protection be used for critical systems. 

    Depending on which regulatory or governmental entities cover your industry, you may soon need to implement an IBM i multi-factor authentication system.  

    In this webinar, we’ll discuss several best practices for evaluating and implementing MFA on IBM I, including:

    • What is MFA and how does it protect my IBM i?

    • MFA versus SFA & 2FA

    • Possible pitfalls when implementing MFA

    • IBM i best practices for MFA

    The technology behind IBM i and IBM Power is modern and sound. It’s just another database server, after all! But how do we in IT speak the language of the business to express its deeply engrained value and importance?

    Legacy. Not strategic. Different from Windows or Linux. Just an AS/400. You name it; we’ve heard it all. Organizations in every industry around the world take IBM i for granted because they simply don’t understand how much it does for the business.  

    Here’s the reality: It’s not the platform. It’s the perception.

    In this iSee we will unwrap how to use a CL command that only creates spool data, use some nifty SQL to pull part that spool file to build a table with the data we are after. This iSee while sure it give you the printer devices, its far more, its a learning guide to some very powerful SQL techniques

    Today there is NO SQL service for getting the list of printer devices.  If you want to automatically integrate you devices.. its just not easy.  One of our ISV asked us is there a way to do that with SQL.  At first the thought was no...there is no SQL services.  BUT, upon review we thought, we have a toolbox of services that can be used and if you combine a few...walla!   You have your list devices in an automated manner.  In this iSee we will unwrap how to use a CL command that only creates spool data, use some nifty SQL to pull part that spool file to build a table with the data we are after.  This iSee while sure it give you the printer devices, its far more, its a learning guide to some very powerful SQL techniques
