These users can potentially circumvent application controls, override security restrictions for themselves and others, change critical server configuration settings, and even cover their tracks while they do it.
While everyone likes to feel special, we need to be more selective when it comes to data access. As we discussed last month, many users have privileges far beyond their business requirements and simply need to have their access reduced to more reasonable levels.
Ask any security professional which area of IBM i security is most often ignored and chances are that the unanimous response is a chorus of “the Integrated File System.” Although it’s been around since V3R1, the Integrated File System, or IFS, remains a shrouded mystery that represents significant risk to many IBM i organizations.
To protect against the risk of a data breach—and the chance of failing a PCI or SOX audit—you need to ensure privileged users can't abuse their access. This exclusive guide shows you how.
Robin Tatam explains how some services that facilitate data access to IBM i bypass traditional security controls—and give your users unmonitored and unrestricted access to sensitive data.
