  • Mainframes are the backbone of most large IT organizations' and many medium-sized companies, too. Their security cannot be left to chance. Yet in many corporations, budget restrictions and the retirement of senior personnel are creating a "knowledge gap" in this critical area. With little training available to the younger crowd, and the senior, experienced people retiring or close to it, the need for mainframe security skills at the senior level is greater than ever. This book fulfills that need.

    IBM Mainframe Security moves beyond the basic material available elsewhere to discuss the important issues in IBM mainframe security from a practical, real-life perspective. Author Dinesh D. Dattani covers security and audit issues, business best practices, and compliance, drawing on more than 30 years of experience as a mainframe security practitioner, consultant, and trainer.

    The book is written in tutorial format, with quizzes and pointers designed to help readers assess the current security in their own organizations. Most chapters are independent of one another, so readers can pick any topic they are interested in and immediately dive into the practical aspects that installations require.

    If you want to move beyond basic RACF skills and boost your security knowledge and understanding, this book is the guide you need.

    With IBM Mainframe Security, you will:

    • Learn how to identify and reduce security weaknesses at your installation
    • Know what it takes to adequately protect the operating system
    • Understand security best practices
    • Increase your security administration knowledge
    • Improve your security skills and productivity
    • Learn about audit issues
