This course begins by discussing the evolution of encryption, describing its importance, benefits and how pervasive encryption is today, a viable solution for organizations looking to meet data security requirements and compliance regulations. Major components of the z16 infrastructure are provided, describing how at-rest, and in-flight data associated with those components supports new and existing encryption capabilities.
This course is suitable for a wide range of people – from business managers, and security specialists, to general IT workers, who need both an overview of pervasive encryption capabilities, and a more technical look at how it is integrated into the latest IBM Z mainframe infrastructure.
A general understanding of the organization’s IT infrastructure and data processing requirements.
After completing this course, the student will be able to:
- Identify the benefits of implementing a pervasive encryption solution
- Describe how IBM Z mainframe platforms and their components support encryption practices
