Fishwick told us that it is important to look at security from a top-level perspective before digging down into the nitty-gritty administrative details. This point is key because "not seeing the forest for the trees" is one of the traits hackers often rely on.
In her webcast on security issues, which can be accessed here on-demand on SearchDomino.com, Fishwick even covers issues of physical security and the capabilities in Domino that support it. Laptop systems are becoming the rule rather than the exception, and lost laptops are too common an occurrence for administrators not to be sure to exercise local database encryption methods, and to make best use of ACL across system replicas.
Renewing certificates, password recovery, Web browser authentication and more are considered in this on-demand webcast.
Take the time to review important principals of security as presented by Fishwick, and keep an eye out for some excerpts from Fishwick's recent book, Lotus Notes and Domino 6 System Administrator Exam, that will soon appear on our site.
