Chris Goggans from Type80

There are external ways to breach a z/OS system and you may not be aware of them. Being able to prove guilt after the fact is not a solution in light of recent breaches. SIEM and SAF (RACF, ACF2/TSS) security are now givens on any z/OS system, but if you think they are enough you’re wrong. No longer is the mainframe a platform that cannot be breached.
Customers have to ensure that they are able to detect when a breach occurs as soon as possible and also have the relevant logs to prove the breach. Chris Goggans, a renowned vulnerability expert, will be discussing some of his real-world experiences in this discussion and why collecting SIEM related data on z/OS must be exploited.
