To Z or Not To Z-
There is No Question

Rebecca Levesque has
20-plus years experience
working with clients
on cyber resiliency and
recovery strategies.

Anyone who has ever attended a presentation that I have been a part of
throughout the world has heard my key theme-for the IBM Z platform
to have its seat at the table, we have to not only enable new technology
but embrace it within our environments. That means we must be willing
to make the necessary changes, learn the new technologies that have
been made available, and advocate for the Z platform in business terms.
In the era of digital transformation, the message is even more important
to convey as businesses look for ways to modernize, knowing that this
includes strengthening their security and stability, now often referred to
as cyber resilience.
As businesses proceed with their digital transformation journey, their
primary concern is to not fall behind the competition. In the recent
Gartner article "Considering Leaving Legacy Platforms,"1 the analyst
stated, "Not having 'grown up' with the platform, new leaders often
lack a deep understanding and knowledge of its capabilities. There may
be misperceptions or outdated information." As champions of the Z
platform, it is incumbent on us to show senior management-especially
those who may not be familiar with it-that Z and its pervasive encryption
technology, I/O throughput and the advances that continue to be made,
position this platform as the smartest business choice for hybrid cloud
and their transformation. As one example of the benefits these bring, in
the Ponemon 2019 "Cost of a Data Breach" report,2 the study found that
of the multiple strategies to reduce the cost of a data breach, encryption
has the greatest impact.
What that means, however, is we not only have to provide the technology
to "do" what is required but the expertise and the "how" to get it
done. Should I, and how do I, take advantage of encryption? How much
encryption is enough for my organization? Hardware only? Do I need to
encrypt at an application level? What does that mean? What do I need
to understand? What tools can I use? Key management may be the most
important part of the process, but how do I determine who owns the
key when applications share data? There are a lot of reasons we need to
think these through, and the ROI is becoming clearer. Can we afford to be
the next company that gets hacked? In a world of digital transformation,
we can't afford not to use the depth of technology and protection the Z
platform provides.
