Think 2019 Wrap and Z Security Session Materials

By Michael Zagorski posted Thu March 21, 2019 12:41 PM


I had the pleasure of attending the Think 2019 conference in San Francisco last month and my big take-away is, without a doubt, that not only is the mainframe here to stay, it’s becoming more interconnected to all things digital transformation. It’s great to see a continued return on our clients’ IBM Z investments, but it also means the mainframe is becoming a bigger target for hackers, thieves and other unscrupulous actors.

I feel lucky that I was able to team with my colleagues, partners and customers to deliver labs, demos and sessions that offered solutions spanning the challenges and opportunities of securing mainframe users, data, applications and infrastructure.

You may be interested in checking out some of the presentations from our sessions so I created the cheat sheet below so you have direct access to session materials. (Note: you need to be registered with IBM to access the site but if you are reading this on the Community you should be all set. If not, it’s really easy to sign up.)
