As attackers become more sophisticated, cyber security has become an arms race and it is imperative that security professionals and system admins continuously improve their strategies to combat the rise of ransomware. Between educating employees, mitigating risk through system security assessments, and taking advantage of tools like SIEM solutions and third party options, companies can arm themselves against intruders. Rob will share his experience working as a security consultant, the various security blunders he’s caught (before attackers have!) ranging from poor physical locks on servers, to poor network practices, and insider attacks performed by disgruntled employees. He’ll also advise on the top 5 things you can (and should!) be doing to secure your system from the inside out, and back in again.

2. Learn best practices for threat remediation on IBM i
3. Identify strategies for how to build your cybersecurity barrier through a proactive approach using IBM i specific tools
