First, a flexible policy management framework must be in place to achieve alignment with business goals and consistent security implementation. Second, common re-usable security services are foundational building blocks for SOA environments, providing the ability to secure data and applications. Consistent IT Security Services that can be used by different components of an SOA run time are required. Point solutions are not scalable, and cannot capture and express enterprise-wide policy to ensure consistency and compliance.
In this IBM® Redbooks® publication, we discuss an IBM Security policy management solution, which is composed of both policy management and enforcement using IT security services. We discuss how this standards-based unified policy management and enforcement solution can address authentication, identity propagation, and authorization requirements, and thereby help organizations demonstrate compliance, secure their services, and minimize the risk of data loss.
This book is a valuable resource for security officers, consultants, and architects who want to understand and implement a centralized security policy management and entitlement solution.
Cybercrime is a phenomenon of our time, often reflected in the media. Forensic investigation of computer systems has a number of features that

This IBM® Redbooks® publication explores concerns that characterize security requirements of, and threats to, business and information technology (IT) systems. This book identifies many business drivers that illustrate these concerns, including managing risk and cost, and compliance to business policies and external regulations. This book shows how these drivers can be translated into capabilities and security needs that can be represented in frameworks, such as the IBM Security Blueprint, to better enable enterprise security.
To help organizations with their security challenges, IBM created a bridge to address the communication gap between the business and technical perspectives of security to enable simplification of thought and process. The IBM Security Framework can help you translate the business view, and the IBM Security Blueprint describes the technology landscape view. Together, they can help bring together the experiences that we gained from working with many clients to build a comprehensive view of security capabilities and needs.
This book is intended to be a valuable resource for business leaders, security officers, and consultants who want to understand and implement enterprise security by considering a set of core security capabilities and services.
