Secure Your Systems with our Ecosystem Session 6: Mainframe passwords revisited

Network event

🎟 Session 6 of 7: Mainframe passwords revisited: impact of new security mechanisms with Detack

Welcome to session 6 of our latest series! Together with six partners and our IBM experts, you will gain insights into mainframe security and most importantly, how our ecosystem operates in this domain.
Mainframes are arguably the most securable computing platform. Yet they are also subject to ransomware attacks and cybersecurity threats. These risks and other vulnerabilities can lead to serious exposures of an organization's data.

According to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach in 2021 was US $4.24 million. Protecting data, ensuring policy compliance, and maintaining control of the data are crucial to the success of any business.

Experience our zSecurity ecosystem in this seven-part series. Explore best practices and guidance around making your applications, architectures, and infrastructures highly secure. Together with certified business partners as well as Independent Software Vendors, discover how we strive to increase the security of your mainframes.

🎺 In today's session Costin Enache & Octav Opaschi from Detack will help us discover how security is compromised today through exploiting password authentication weaknesses, with and without Multi-factor Authentication.
We will explore how Detack's clients prevent security incidents and achieve compliance for user authentication on mainframes with EPAS.

🎯 Speakers: Costin Enache & Octav Opaschi, Detack

Secure Your Systems w/ our Ecosystem Session 7: ZTA compliant communication

Network event

🎟 Session 7 of 7: ZTA compliant communication protection and endpoint security, with p≡p Security

Welcome to the final session of this series! Together with six partners and our IBM experts, you will gain insights into mainframe security and most importantly, how our ecosystem operates in this domain.
Mainframes are arguably the most securable computing platform. Yet they are also subject to ransomware attacks and cybersecurity threats. These risks and other vulnerabilities can lead to serious exposures of an organization's data.

Together with certified business partners as well as Independent Software Vendors, discover how we strive to increase the security of your mainframes.

🎺 In today's session Volker Birk of p≡p Security will talk to us about Zero Trust Architecture (not to confuse with Zero Trust Model or Zero Trust Network Access) the NIST and the CISA are defining a paradigm change in designing networks. Where ZTA is available ZTNA is not needed anymore.

This session introduces the new paradigm and names the advantages why US government decided to rework all IT infrastructure nationwide to transition to ZTA. p≡p security is a leading provider of ZTA solutions, which allow from the beginning to reach state “optimal” in the Zero Trust Architecture Maturity Model of CISA. In this session it is shown what is needed to transition an existing heterogeneous cloud / on premises network and how the Mainframe can play a key role in it.

🎯 Speakers: Volker Birk, p≡p Security

[Pride Edition] Build & Deploy AI/ML Models with Multiple Datasets with AutoAI

IBM Watson Astor Place

This is a hybrid event. The event will be in-person at the IBM office at Astor Place in NYC as well as livestreamed to IBM Developer.

Livestream: https://www.crowdcast.io/e/autoai

Join IBM Developer to learn how to build and deploy your very own AI predictive models by joining multiple datasets. IBM Cloud Pak for Data's AutoAI automatically analyzes your data and generates customized predictive model pipelines. Using AutoAI, you can build and deploy a machine learning model with sophisticated training features and no coding!

This talk will cover:

  • The Basics of Auto AI
  • Learn about Data Pre-Processing and Automated Model Selection
  • Learn about Automated Feature Engineering and Hyperparameter Optimization
