Our January meeting will be held on Wednesday, January 8th at 11:00 a.m. at the Murray City Offices (City Council Chambers), 5025 South State Street. This will be a two-hour session with a free pizza lunch break in the middle.
Our meeting topic will be Developing Secure Applications. Although your IBM i server is one of the most securable platforms available, the protection of critical data is often undermined by weak security design at the application level.
This session will cover the main considerations that a programmer should be aware of as they design their applications:
- Object ownership
- Public and private authorities
- Adopted authority
- Command line permission
- Client-server considerations
Our discussion will include why auditors are often deemed to be a programmer’s nemesis, and what it is that they really need from us.
Our speaker will be Robin Tatam, Director of Security Technologies for PowerTech and a COMMON subject matter expert (SME) for security. As an award-winning speaker on security topics, Robin has been interviewed and quoted by industry magazines and has published numerous trade articles. He is also co-author of IBM’s Redbook publication on IBM i Data Encryption. Robin can be reached by email at email@example.com.
Linoma is hosting a free webinar about DB2 field level encryption (fieldprocs) on June 13th, 2013. For more information follow this link.
A summary of the event is:
Now you can quickly encrypt sensitive data on the IBM i including credit card numbers, social security numbers, birthdates, bank routing numbers and other confidential fields in your physical files and tables. DB2 Field Procedures (FieldProcs) in IBM i version 7.1 has greatly simplified field encryption, often without requiring any file or application changes.
Join us for this free webinar where we’ll discuss
- How Field Procedures (FieldProcs) work
- Tips and techniques for implementing FieldProcs
- How to restrict access to sensitive fields by user or group profile
- Masking techniques to show only partial values
- Potential gotchas and hurdles to look out for
- Proper key management and security controls to comply with PCI DSS
- Audit trails to satisfy compliance reporting requirements
During this webinar, you will also get a demonstration of Crypto Complete by Linoma Software’s technical team. Crypto Complete will automatically create and manage the FieldProcs needed for encrypting your database fields. Crypto Complete also includes the security controls, key management, and audit trails required to pass audits and meet privacy regulations.
