How Organizations with Mainframes Can Improve Security and Compliance Risks

In “Setting the Record Straight on Mainframe Security and Compliance,” we looked at findings from our recently published “State of the Mainframe” survey to clarify some questions about how secure and compliant the mainframe is, given endless security threats and cyber-attacks from within and outside businesses, as well as escalating regulatory requirements.

My colleagues have extended their research to look at what IT executives now need to know about security and compliance including:

  • What data they must keep and what can be safely disposed of.
  • Where sensitive data is kept.
  • What data has to be readily available for audit purposes.
  • Who should have access to what classes of data.

In our new eBook, Security, Compliance and the Mainframe,” we explore these subjects in greater detail. We also recommend steps by which organizations with mainframes can improve their organizations’ risk profiles regarding both security and compliance.

The eBook also shares information about:

  • Gartner’s explanation of circumstances that give rise to mainframe security lapses.
  • PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) findings from their annual “Global State of Information Security®” survey, incorporating responses from more than 10,000 CEOs, CFOs, CIOs, VPs, and directors of IT and security practices from 127 countries.
  • IBM’s security upgrades in its new z13s which they say provides an “unprecedented level of security”.
  • Who “Insiders” are and what their impact is on security breaches
  • Compliance requirements in the US.
  • What organizations need to do to be compliant.

The eBook also recommends steps by which organizations with mainframes can improve their organizations’ risk profiles regarding both security and compliance.  Interested?  Then download the eBook to learn more.
