Product Details

In this practical and highly readable guide--a V7 update to her acclaimed IBM i & i5/OS Security & Compliance book--security expert Carol Woodbury explains IBM i security and how it functions within IBM i systems. Carol explains the importance of developing a security policy and details how to implement and maintain a compliant system, sharing insights and recommendations based on her extensive experience designing and implementing security on IBM systems.

Security levels, user profiles, service tools, encryption, auditing, compliance, security administration, and incident response are among the topics covered. Internet and network security, as well as security considerations for IT personnel, vendors, and consultants, are discussed, and a full explanation of the security audit journal is provided. An all-new chapter focuses on security administration, highlighting areas that need attention and explaining how to manage them effectively.

Carol also shares her methodology for successfully implementing an object-level security project, detailing the process of determining a system's current security settings, default access requirements, process access, and rollout of new application security models.
