Practical Ways to Use IBM i Security to Make Your Life Easier

11-14-2017, Meetings, Directors

During this presentation, Carol Woodbury will show how you can use three areas of the system: Auditing, Security-relevant commands and the V7R3 feature  Authority Collection to help you in your daily work. Carol will show you how to easily get information out of the audit journal so you can take advantage of the wealth of information being gathered. She will show you commands that you may not realize exist or features of commands you may be ignoring and provide new ways to use these commands. Finally, she will demonstrate the security feature in V7R3 called Authority Collection and describe the practical ways you can use it in your workplace. Questions are welcome throughout to ensure you are getting the most out of the presentation.
