ABSTRACT:
Acting on the growing threat viruses pose to security infrastructures, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has taken strong strides to safeguard individuals' sensitive information. Recent virus activity and identity theft has forced the iSeries (System i) community to acknowledge the vulnerability of the platform and rethink its approach to data protection.

Leaving the System i unprotected can undermine otherwise conscientious efforts on other platforms within the organization, while the use of PC-based antivirus software can leave security exposures open and create new risks. This case study illustrates how the SSA achieved a new level of thoroughness in information protection, preventing the implementation of malicious schemes such as "patched" programs that enable backdoors into the most secure systems - such as the System i.
