Servers running AIX and other operating systems are frequent targets of cyberattacks, according to the Data Breach Investigations Report. From DDoS to malware, attackers have many strategies at their disposal—and common cybersecurity mistakes make their attacks much easier.
One of the most serious mistakes is failing to create a well-defined security policy.
A written statement of how your organizations intends to protect its IT assets is the most effective way to address security issues created by new technologies like mobile devices and social media. Without such a policy, it’s very difficult to ensure you have appropriate controls in place to protect mission-critical data.
A written security policy is also a requirement for compliance mandates like Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and HIPAA.
But how do you even begin defining an AIX security policy if you’re not an expert on AIX security?
Watch this webinar to learn how to start creating an effective security policy and avoid AIX security mistakes. Cybersecurity expert Bob Erdman will explain the most important issues to consider when setting a strong AIX security policy, including:
- Securing your front door
- Setting strong password policies
- Important configuration settings to monitor on your system
- How to initially assess and then continuously monitor your AIX system’s security settings
Find out how Policy Minder can help you define and maintain your security policy on the IBM i, AIX, Linux, and Windows platforms.
