Speaker: Mel Zucker
Price: Free courtesy of SEA
May 8, 2019 at 2:00 p.m.. CST

Most companies today know the importance of and have the means in place to audit and monitor user activity on the IBM i. However, many are still struggling to close the gaps and create a user activity monitoring strategy that’s fit for a modern enterprise. Without a defined strategy that integrates cohesively with audit and monitoring solutions, your organization is at risk of underutilizing current solutions or current staffing power. In this webinar, we’ll define the basics and take you through what user activity monitoring strategies can be created with the native OS/400 features, and cover more expansive strategies that can be created with additional software.

In this webinar you’ll learn about:

  • Why the IBM i is audited and its key stakeholders
  • Whose activity should be monitored on the IBM i? Why? What should we monitor?
  • Overview of Native functions for Audit and Monitoring and strategies for using them
  • Overview of additional software solutions that allow you to create a granular Audit and Monitoring strategy
