I'm glad to tell you that Rebecca was an active and critical contributer to the development of several of the current exams.

Understanding DB2 9 Security, IBM Press by Rebecca Bond, Kevin See, Carmen Wong, Henry Chan
Understanding DB2 9 Security is the only comprehensive guide to securing DB2 and leveraging the powerful new security features of DB2 9. Direct from a DB2 Security deployment expert and the IBM® DB2 development team, this book gives DBAs and their managers a wealth of security information that is available nowhere else. It presents real-world implementation scenarios, step-by-step examples, and expert guidance on both the technical and human sides of DB2 security.
This book’s material is organized to support you through every step of securing DB2 in Windows®, Linux®, or UNIX® environments. You’ll start by exploring the regulatory and business issues driving your security efforts, and then master the technological and managerial knowledge crucial to effective implementation. Next, the authors offer practical guidance on post-implementation auditing, and show how to systematically maintain security on an ongoing basis.
