Security Remediation

Security Remediation

When IBM i risks have been identified on your system, we can address them for you to increase your data protection and position your organization for a more secure future.

Implement Your Security Plan with Help from the Experts

Are you feeling overwhelmed by your security task list? Most companies completing a thorough security audit will come out with a hefty collection of next steps. Fixing security vulnerabilities has never been more important, so don’t wait to take action.

If you lack the staff to actually implement your plan, HelpSystems consultants can do the work for you. We typically offer Security Remediation services for our customers as the last step in a full security consultation, following an initial Risk Assessment and Security Architecture.

Expertly Close Security Gaps

Leveraging the expertise of our security team to address your security risks can provide you with peace of mind, knowing you’re doing what’s best to protect your business.

Ensure Changes Are Executed Correctly

Working with seasoned security professionals removes the worry that junior or less experienced team members will incorrectly execute your plan requirements.  

Position Your Company for Future Success

At the end of security remediation, your new security architecture will be tested, approved, and following best practices. Furthermore, we will educate members of your team to ensure they have the knowledge necessary to maintain the security scheme going forward.

The Security Remediation Process

While every remediation project is different, our security experts may perform actions such as the following as part of security remediation:

Test your new security architecture on a test system

Re-architect user authorities and special authorities

Make approved changes to user profiles and special authorities

Roll out application changes 

Develop, test, and roll out Integrated File System (IFS) changes

Set up regular monitoring and reporting on security events from the audit journal
