Protecting Mainframes Against New Network and Cyber Threats


Thurs. Feb 23 - 1pm EST / 12pm CST / 10am PST

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking your mainframe is somehow immune to today’s ever-increasing network and cyber threats. These new and advanced threats can come from many directions, including distributed systems, business partners connected to your mainframe, or compromised internal systems and users. Recognizing the need to further secure mainframes in networked and hybrid cloud environments, IBM and LRS have partnered with BlackRidge Technology to fill this gap and provide an additional level of real-time TCP network security and cyber defense.

Webinar attendees will learn about:

  • specific TCP network security threats from distributed systems
  • potential compliance gaps from network port scanning and reconnaissance
  • how to address these protection gaps and provide your CISO with visibility for compliance and risk management

Who should attend:

  • z Systems Security Architects
  • Network and Security Architects and Engineers
  • CISO Security Operations Team
