Remember the mainframe? It's been with us for over 50 years and when you mention the mainframe, people often think its old, outdated technology. Yet did you know that it’s still receiving regular hardware/software updates and is the backbone of IT processing for large and medium sized organisations (E.g., Banking, Insurance, Retail, Government, transportation etc), however executives and managers are completely unaware of the devastating consequences to their business if these systems were abruptly shut down, suffered a major security breach etc. This session will look at how dependant we are on those systems as a society and some interesting facts on the security of the platform. The speaker will also share a “day in the life” of a human being and how they will interact with a mainframe at some point during the day!
