Past attendee testimonial:

I was hesitant to take the Deep Dive class thinking it was for those with a working knowledge of the IBM i. I was tasked with auditing this o/s and only had a basic understanding of its security. Carol was an excellent instructor. She provided pertinent information to all participants, regardless of their skill level. This class gave me the knowledge to perform a thorough review of the IBM i and provide value-added recommendations to improve security.
