Best Practices - IBM i Security

Carol Woodbury, Skyview Partners, Inc.

April 22, 2014 FASUG Meeting

Session Abstract:
The role of the security administrator is a role that is often the responsibility of the overall System Administrator. Unfortunately, on the list of ToDos on the System Administrator's list, the security tasks typically fall to the bottom and are often never performed. Security is being neglected and it shows in the system's security configuration reports. The purpose of this session is to raise the awareness of the need for security to be administered and to educate the person tasked with security administration about the tasks that need to be performed. The demand for security administration is increasing, but the number of administrators that know what they should be doing in this area is shrinking. This session will educate the attendees on the appropriate tasks that should be accomplished by a security administrator.

Learning Objectives:
  • 1. Understand the role of a Security Administrator.
  • 2. Learn about the tasks that should be accomplished by an IBM i security administrator.
  • 3. Learn how to best accomplish these tasks.
