WEBINAR What’s New in Crypto for z/OS? We’ll discuss the current trends in extending data security for the mainframe, pros/cons of encryption methods and proven ways to protect data including a native z/OS encryption implementation that’s easy to use with CICS or any z/OS environment. > wHo SHoulD attenD: those with senior level technical or business responsibility for enterprise data security and data protection > Tuesday, November 15, 2011 – 10:00 am Pt; noon Ct; 1 PM et > agenDa: Mainframes remain the core of business-critical operations in most of the world’s largest and most successful enterprises, including those in banking, insurance, healthcare, and retail. But as It management will attest, there can be issues with complexity when it comes to securing critical information on the mainframes running on z/oS. Implementing an encryption solution is typically disruptive to business operations and requires hundreds of lines of code to acquire and store keys and perform cryptographic operations. adding to the complexity are the deep expertise and highly specialized knowledge needed to keep all the moving parts working. not only that, but roughly 80% of z/oS customers use CICS, yet many vendors offer no developer abstraction to make it easy to encrypt from CICS transactions. In this webcast we’ll discuss proven strategies for easily implementing data security in the z/oS environment. You’ll learn about: • Extending the proven security & defenses of the mainframe to protect information assets against new world threat to data • Pros and cons of various types of encryption and key management • Achieving system interoperability with a data security platform approach • Simplified key management that virtually eliminates key management issues • A native z/OS encryption implementation that’s easy to use with CICS or any z/OS environment Featuring Rich Skinner Featured Speaker Enterprise Risk, Security Executive Advisor, CISSP - IBM Philip H.
