SQL for the Administrator/Scott Forstie, Tim Rowe
SQL is often thought of as how you access data from a database. While it does a great job with that task, SQL is far more versatile. SQL is a language for accessing and manipulating 'data'. Not just limited to the database. With the many SQL
Services that the IBM i operating system has added over the past years, these services coupled with SQL provide a great way to access and manage many aspects of your IBM i. This includes dealing with security as well as other system
management activities.
In this session Scott and Tim will be sharing some of their favorite Services and the SQL to make them sing. This session is intended to help the non SQL expert add
some new options into their 'toolkit'.

A Tale of Two Cities/Westley P Mcduffie
It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. ~ Charles Dickens 1859 When I started the research for this, it is intended to be a technical-ish discussion on two breaches that have recently occurred. One is the largest in history (at the time of the writing) an the other is a little known, but to a handful of folks. It is based on what we observed, both companies’ reactions to what happened, and what we were able to glean from what happened. Marriot: 500 Million records breached from a problem they bought. Literally, Arizona Iced Tea: Millions of dollars in sales lost from a ransomware attack. Each company survived their respective incidents, but how each company handled the incidents, themselves, and their clients speaks volumes on wisdom and foolishness.

What makes an effective security organization?/Westley P Mcduffie
Just spit-balling, anyone could make the argument for any number of items to that would be part of the recipe in designing an effective security organization. A recent “official” Twitter survey was conducted asking what the three most important aspects are. Strictly opinion based, and open to all. Many of the answers revolved around 3 primary areas: culture, enabling, and knowledge. Over 300 responses from people in the industry, this was not a board room discussion about security, this was not a Gartner survey of what CISO’s think. This is ground opinion of what works, and some of the why it works. Too many times we as information security professionals fail at one or more of these group listings or the organization may fail even with the best talent in the world. We are humans, we have egos that sometimes don’t always gel. Herb Brooks is quoted “ I don’t need the best players, I need the right players”
