• Providing you with the confidence that your mainframe environment has undergone a specialist best practice security health check: key to successfully protecting your mainframe systems against security breaches - whether hacking, internal threat or accidental data loss.

  • Review essential security controls on your IBM mainframe platform

    Mainframe auditing is often performed by organizations or individuals possessing little to no mainframe knowledge or understanding: we see them typically performing a simple Checklist or Ticklist audit. Worryingly, having received a clean audit, this leaves organizations incorrectly believing their IBM mainframe infrastructure is secure and infallible. As the threat landscape continues to evolve, a specialist mainframe security assessment by RSM experts is key to fully understanding your IBM mainframe infrastructure in security terms, ensuring the most robust and appropriate controls are in place.
