Peter Mills, CorreLog Vice President of Product Development and Support, will follow Young, demonstrating how organizations can use their SIEM and IT SOC to monitor the mainframe for cyber-attacks in real time by leveraging tools they already have at their disposal. Both Young and Mills will be fielding attendee questions following the presentation.

“We’re delighted to partner with IBM Systems Magazine on this webinar, and we’re honored that a mainframe security ambassador like Phil Young will be joining us,” said CorreLog President and CEO George Faucher. “The word is getting out about mainframe vulnerabilities, and our mission is to help CISOs boost the security tools they already have to include z/OS monitoring. Interested parties will not want to miss live z/OS penetration testing as well as the most advanced strategies for security visibility across the entirety of their enterprise IT infrastructure in this webinar.”

SIEM software platforms are the standard for distributed network security, but generally lack real-time monitoring of z/OS systems. CorreLog has been working with insurance companies, financial institutions, and government agencies since 2008 to help secure mainframe data with real-time monitoring for user activity with its product zDefender® for z/OS, and real-time monitoring for Db2 user activity with dbDefender™ for Db2.
