Event Summary

How to Audit MVS with RACF, ACF2, or Top Secret

ISACA NY is hosting “How to Audit MVS with RACF, ACF2, or Top Secret” a two-day session. Mainframe security has two basic components: the MVS operating system and the security software (which is always one of RACF, ACF2, or Top Secret). A weakness in either component undermines the security of the other. In this two – day session Stu will show you how the security works for each component, and ten how to audit it. You will learn essential concepts and buzzwords for mainframe audits, what information to collect, and how to interpret it. This session shows you how to audit the security of the MVS operating system, which is part of a software package called z/OS, used on IBM mainframe computers. This session also shows you how the three-major security software packages (RACF, ACF2, and Top Secret) for MVS work. You will learn what they have in common as well as how they are different, and what you need to do to audit them. Level: Intermediate
