Securing the AS/400 for a 21st Century Network -
A Guide To Discussing Security With Your AS/400 Administrator

- John Earl, CTO, PowerTech Learn More
- Laura Koetzle, Vice President – Research Training, Forrester Learn More

  • If you ask your AS/400 admin’s, they’ll tell you the box is already secure, but can they prove it?
  • Given the critical data that often rests on these workhorse systems, can you afford to simply take their word for it?

A lot of energy has been put into securing the enterprise but, in site after site, AS/400 systems have received very little scrutiny from internal and external auditors. If you are relying on this native operating system, coupled with your local AS/400 admin’s expertise, to keep your data secure, studies show that your organization is likely overexposed and under reporting the risks on this critical infrastructure component.

This presentation will demonstrate the shortcomings of legacy security methodologies in 21st century networks and provide you with crib notes for discussing security concerns with your AS/400 staff.
