This residency will be responsible for creating and publishing a "Security Catalog" for IBM Power.

We will describe the specific features and functions available within the Power 10 processor chip to provide one of the most secure infrastructures available in the industry. We will also describe how each of the different operating systems address security for their clients. We will discuss other products and solutions that assist our clients protect one of their most important assets - their corporate data. Not all residents will be highly skilled in all of the skills we are looking for. We will be looking for a good blend of residents whose skills complement each other and can work together to provide a broad view of security features and data protection/data resilience.
