In a World of Cyber-Attacks, is Data Safe on a Mainframe?

Presented by

Mark Wilson, BMC Mainframe Services Technical & Security Director

About this talk

Please join Dell Technologies and Mark Wilson to learn about effective data resiliency and recovery solutions to protect data against malicious attacks. Regardless of the computing platform, thieves can compromise data. In 2020, cyber-attacks were estimated to be occurring every 39 seconds1. In 2019, Accenture forecasted that over $5T of global value would be at risk over the next 5 years2 due to cybercrime. And, unfortunately, 2020 kept this prediction on track. This no cost virtual event will give you valuable insight into how mainframes and storage can be (and are) compromised. You will learn about field-tested solutions for the protection and recovery of mainframe data in a world full of ransomware, phishing, data leakage, hacking and insider threats where “when, not if” is not a cliché. Agenda: • Is the mainframe really a desirable target for cyber criminals? • Breaching mainframe security and compromising data is not an urban legend • A solid, tested DR strategy is not enough • Believe it or not, cyber resiliency and protection can SAVE storage capacity and reduce costs. • Don’t know where to start?
