How to keep your IBM i data and file transfers secure while maintaining compliance

Posted by on Wednesday, 30 April, 2014

IBM i It seems commonplace to hear about data or security breaches on the news these days. With the threat of steep fines and loss of trust in your brand, the impact a breach can have on a business of any size could be devastating. If your organization utilizes IBM i systems for transferring files and sensitive data, you need to understand the risks involved and know how to proactively reduce those risks.

At the COMMON 2014 Annual Meeting and Exposition in Orlando, Florida, Linoma Software’s Bob Luebbe and Ron Byrd will be presenting two sessions targeting IBM i data encryption issues and how you can protect yourself.

DB2 Field Encryption Has Been Simplified

Posted by on Wednesday, 5 June, 2013

Compliance regulations like HIPAA and PCI DSS have us all looking for more efficient and secure ways to keep sensitive data protected, especially the personal information fields we’ve all come to rely on: social security numbers, credit card numbers, birth dates, driver’s license numbers, insurance policy ID numbers, etc.

Register for DB2 FieldProcs WebinarFortunately, IBM is working hard to meet the growing demands of companies who must store and share private information and compliance auditors who govern how it must be done.  When it released IBM i 7.1, it included a feature for encrypting DB2 form fields to give IT staffs more control.

Surprisingly, not everyone is taking full advantage of these DB2 FieldProcs either because they’re not aware of their benefit, or because they’re waiting for an even more comprehensive approach.

If you fall into either of these groups, then we’ve got good news.  The Linoma Software team is hosting a webinar next week to share tips for how to maximize the DB2 FieldProcs feature in IBM i 7.1.  In addition, we’ll provide some options that could give your processes even more functionality, making things more efficient.

We invite you to grab some lunch and join us for IBM i Field Procedures Simplified with DB2 Field Procedures on June 13 at noon central.  There will be lots of opportunities to ask questions, and we’ll also record the webinar so you can share it with your colleagues.

Hope you’ll be able to join us!
