Top 10 Vulnerabilities of IBM i Security

In this world we live in, with increasing opportunities for, and occurrences of, data breaches and unauthorized system access, this session is timely, and extremely pertinent to all of us

Robin has an extensive background.  After joining the AS/400 community as an application developer more than two decades ago, it was a natural progression for him to begin helping clients secure and audit applications from unauthorized access.  His IBM-certified development expertise now provides clients with the benefit of a unique insight into the challenges of securing applications and the programmers that maintain them. He was selected by IBM to co-author the IBM i Redbook on encryption, and he became more visible as a member of the IBM i security community; an ongoing effort that triggered several speaker awards and his subsequent induction into COMMON's “Speaker Excellence Hall of Fame”, and he now acts as the subject-matter expert (SME) on security for them.  Numerous feature articles carrying his name have appeared in leading trade publications, and he’s been interviewed on IBM i security topics by DV Dialog and Computer World magazines.  Robin is also the lead author of the popular "State of IBM i Security" report.   Robin was recruited by the Help/Systems team in 2009, and he now lives and works in Minneapolis under the title of Director of Security Technologies.  His current professional focus is on the PowerTech division—a fast-growing provider of world-class security solutions for IBM’s Power Systems server platform running IBM i.  As a firm subscriber to the theory of “pay it forward” and a super-fan of the “I” platform, Robin maintains a busy professional schedule that includes numerous education and mentoring initiatives.

Message from the President


First off…my apologies for missing the September meeting.  Sometimes we have to deal circumstances beyond our control, such was the case for me in September.  From the feedback I’ve received from our members, Pete Massiello made a touchdown, kicking off our 2014-2015 season, with his presentation:  Everything you need to know to upgrade to IBM i 7.2.  Thanks again Pete, I looking forward to seeing you in the future…

For our October 15th meeting Robin Tatam, also known as the security evangelist for IBM i, is coming in to teach us the The Top Ten Vulnerabilities of IBM i Security.  In this world we live in, with increasing opportunities for, and occurrences of, data breaches and unauthorized system access, this session is timely, and extremely pertinent to all of us.  Robin has an extensive background.  After joining the AS/400 community as an application developer more than two decades ago, it was a natural progression for him to begin helping clients secure and audit applications from unauthorized access.  His IBM-certified development expertise now provides clients with the benefit of a unique insight into the challenges of securing applications and the programmers that maintain them. He was selected by IBM to co-author the IBM i Redbook on encryption, and he became more visible as a member of the IBM i security community; an ongoing effort that triggered several speaker awards and his subsequent induction into COMMON's “Speaker Excellence Hall of Fame”, and he now acts as the subject-matter expert (SME) on security for them.  Robin is also the lead author of the popular "State of IBM i Security" report.   Robin was recruited by the Help/Systems team in 2009, and he now lives and works in Minneapolis under the title of Director of Security Technologies.  His current professional focus is on the PowerTech division—a fast-growing provider of world-class security solutions for IBM’s Power Systems server platform running IBM i.  As a firm subscriber to the theory of “pay it forward” and a super-fan of the “I” platform, Robin maintains a busy professional schedule that includes numerous education and mentoring initiatives.

And now we’re on Robin’s schedule….And he’s going to mentor us….

May The Force be with us!
