|
| I have to state that I do not consider myself a "security
| specialist" even though the company that currently employs me
| competes in that space -- I was hired for other reasons. I'm
| actually something of a "generalist", as are many others on this
| list. And my participation here is usually from personal
| interest, both in sharing knowledge when I have it and in
| learning from others which happens often.
|
| OTOH, my current boss... um... kind of "wrote the book" as far as
| iSeries security goes and we have a couple others who qualify, so
| maybe I could drop a suggestion or two. I definitely agree that
| SOMEone should write. Maybe even MANY someones.
