I would like to learn the above subject. For example, GSD331, ITCS104 and other related resources (which I am not sure)...including ITIL. Can someone help me to list down the most relevent and details articles for reference? I have researched the forum and did not find one...or maybe I have missed he topic icon_smile.gif

Relevant to what? Can you clarify what you are looking for. Do you have some requirement or are you just curious?

Security is a wide subject. On IBM mainframes, there are 3 primary security products - RACF, ACF2, and Top Secret. RACF is an IBM
product. The others are Computer Associates products. There is a lot of info on the vendor web sites.

I doubt if IBM would approve of you discussing "IBM Security Processes and Standards" in a public forum.

Hello,

I suspect that very few (if any) users here are conversant with IBM's internal security policies/procedures icon_smile.gif And yes, IBM would surely not want internal information shared.

I'm not aware of any reason that the theory (and questions about specific product mechanics) of securing an environment would be a problem if discussed. Again, an organization's internal information should not be posted, but discussion about securing IT resources should be OK (IMHO).

Hello guys,

Thanks a bunch....yes, i know that it is not appropriate to discuss this subject in public. Actually, i am looking for references and not to discuss online. To be honest, i would like to prepare for my future jobs icon_smile.gif

Anyway, if it is hard to get the resources for this, can i ask another question...what should i know if i want to go for Operations? Currently, i am doing Prod Support for US based Telco company. I give yall my current skills set:

MVS, Cobol, ISPF, TSO Tools, ESP, JCL, dfsort/syncsort, Utilities, File-Aid, Endeavor, NDM (connect-direct), RMF, IPL (theory).

Sorry if my message is not appropriate.

Joe.

There is nothing wrong with your message.

What resources are you looking for? Did you go to the 3 vendor product web sites? All of the IBM documentation cn be found via IBM. The CA documentation is proprietary and to be able to download it, you (your organization) has to be a licensed user of the product. Downloads are free to licensed users.

I'm not familiar with GSD331 and ITCS104. . . How would these help you?

Find out what your prospective employers expect. Calling them or their "head-hunters" may be a way to find out what is required.

You might talk with your manager about the possibility of moving into security or operations for the same organization where you currently work.
