Why These 3 Security Sessions Should Be On Your IBM Think Agenda

IBM Think
IBM Think will have more than 2,000 sessions and labs led by industry disruptors and innovators on key topics. But which sessions are most important to your business?
Security is no doubt at the top of your mind across industries, and at IBM Think we made sure to have you covered—in terms of security in general, but as well from an infrastructure standpoint. We locked in a couple of Power Systems security sessions, providing an overall view on our end-to-end security posture to keep your organization secure. We even have a security lab where clients can play around and test our PowerSC portfolio in order to experience the huge simplification and acceleration capabilities it provides. Finally, we take a glance into the future to see what all arises on our longer term roadmap and strategy.  
Here are three key security sessions you won’t want to miss:

Hands-On Lab: See How to Simplify Management of Security and Compliance on IBM Power Systems 

Speakers: Petra Bührer, IBM; Tim Hill, Rocket Software; Zach Floen, Fiserv
PowerSC is our offering portfolio to simplify management of security and compliance in cloud and virtualized environments. It sits atop our Power Systems stack, leveraging the security features of the underlaying stack, making it deeply integrated. PowerSC Standard Edition provides additional security capabilities such as compliance automation to help with various industry standards like PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, real-time malware detection, reporting to support security audits, patching, trusted logging and more. By providing all these capabilities wrapped under a nice web-based user interface, PowerSC helps to get across the hurdles of manual, tedious and time-consuming security configurations. The same applies to the PowerSC Multi-Factor Authentication offering, which allows you to authenticate via your phone for instance in order to access an application running on AIX or Linux on Power Systems in a secure fashion. Come see us and try it out and experience it yourself! You can add this session to your conference agenda here.

How Secure is Your Infrastructure? 

Speaker: Dimitrios Pendarakis, IBM
Security risks and cyberattacks are continuously evolving as new areas of vulnerabilities emerge and the set of targeted assets expands. New technologies such as cloud, containers, AI and quantum computing will provide new capabilities but also enable new types of attacks and introduce uncertainty over the sufficiency of current security controls. In this session, Dimitrios Pendarakis, IBM Distinguished Engineer and Chief Security Office of Cognitive Systems, will provide a glance into the future and describe how IBM is preparing for this new era of threats by introducing new capabilities throughout the Power Systems stack around enhanced isolation and integrity as well as support for new encryption schemes.
