End of Local User Group Month

Today being the last day of February it is also the last day of Local User Group 2022 month.

I am please to say that last week I found a LUG based in Singapore that covers all of the operating systems that run on IBM Power: AIX, IBM i, and Linux.

ASEAN Power (AIX, IBM i, Linux) Group

They have been added to the list of user groups on the User Groups page.

Even though Local User Group month has ended I am still interested in keeping the list of user groups up to date. If you learn of a new group, or one that has closed, please contact me with their details.

A thank you goes out to everyone who contacted me about their groups, or groups they know of.

Security Alert! Prevent FTP and ODBC Data Breaches on IBM i

Modern interfaces like FTP and ODBC completely bypass menu security, often allowing end users and even attackers to view, update, and delete data in the database without the restrictions and auditing supplied by the application.

Unfortunately, the vast majority of IBM i organizations still rely on menu security to protect their data.

Learning about the power and openness of these interfaces is critical for ensuring the integrity of the server’s application data. It’s also an essential step in complying with all formal regulations, including SOX, PCI, and HIPAA.

Join this informative webinar to learn how to close the “back doors” not covered by traditional security schemes. IBM i security expert Robin Tatam will explain exit point security and why this little-understood topic is so important to IBM i organizations.

You’ll also see how one organization was targeted through FTP and learn how they implemented policies that restrict access to only those users who need it.
