Avoiding expensive and potentially ruinous security breaches affecting your operations and reputation. RSM security experts can ensure it becomes extremely difficult, and therefore unlikely, that your IBM Z mainframe systems can be compromised, risking exposure of sensitive and business-critical data.
Targeting Security Improvements - Removing Vulnerabilities
Following an in-house or external audit, an RSM Mainframe Security Health Check, Penetration Testing or Vulnerability Scan, our bespoke Remediation Programmes mean you can deal with any issues and vulnerabilities that have been revealed, ensuring that you have the strongest defences against cyber attack, hacking and other internal and external threats.
Gaining significant ROI from a mainframe security audit by:
Reducing risk of a major security breach
Improving security processes and procedures as remediation work progresses
Enabling your mainframe environment to handle greater workloads, in more efficient ways
Delivering lower resource costs
Helping you comply with initiatives such as PCI-DSS, GDPR and SOX, where remediation requires it
Providing users with access to the data and resources only where needed to do their jobs
Identifying fewer issues in future security audits
Achieving a cost-neutral position allowing you to do more at the same cost
Securing your mainframes and your business
We provide the specialist resources and skill sets you may lack in-house to ensure the most effective Security Improvement Programmes. We bring a great many years real-world experience in planning and executing remediation activity, ranging from relatively short 12-week projects to 24-month programmes - every security situation being different.
Delivering on time and to budget, our mainframe security service includes:
Deploying a team of experienced security technicians led by an RSM Senior Project Manager
Conducting Project Definition Workshops, Project Initiation Documentation and detailed Project Planning
Collaborating with you to build a Resourcing Plan that makes best use of both RSM and your own inhouse resources
Providing you with a Mainframe Security Implementation able to withstand serious scrutiny and testing
