DSA Training

A Departmental Security Administrator (DSA) is the point of contact between clients requiring mainframe accounts and Information Security.  These individuals are designated by their departments to perform limited Information Security functions on a departmental level.  Training is required for all new DSAs to master the tools and information necessary to maintain mainframe accounts within their departments.  DSAs who have already attended training are always welcome to sign up for a refresher.
