If you handle credit card payment data in your company, you're probably familiar with the Payment Card Industry Council. But they're no longer the only game in town. Maybe it's time to look at the broad issues.

If you handle credit card payments in your company, you know that PCI compliance has been the gold standard for the last decade. And if you've been paying any attention lately, you know that Apple Pay was announced in October 2014 and is getting a lot of press as being the future of electronic payments.
I recently received a note asking if there was a way to add the day of week to query reports generated by the IBM Query for i (5770-QU1) product. That is, take a current report containing dates as shown below:
NGS’ Software Developer Kit (SDK) gives IBM i developers comprehensive query, dynamic mobile reporting, analytics and Web report design features at an affordable cost. Install and create meaningful outputs for managers in one day! Web page and portal integration, email, FTP are included.
The $895* SDK includes a one user license, online training, user manuals, one year of software maintenance; toll-free support and online incident reporting.
want to modernize beyond Query/400 and PC files transfers
need a Web reporting solution without the learning curve and overhead of DB2 Web Query
have many reporting needs, but a tight budget and small staff
Carol is pleased to be joined for this Coffee with Carol by friend and former colleague Jeff Uehling, current Chief Security Architect for IBM i. Jeff and Carol will be discussing a number of the recent Security Vulnerabilities which have had a huge, industry-wide impact on both hardware and software vendors - including IBM and the IBM i development groups. These security vulnerabilities include well-publicized ones such as Heartbleed, Bash/Shellshock and Poodle as well as numerous vulnerabilities that haven’t hit the media. These vulnerabilities exist in areas such as Java, OpenSSL and many networking areas of your systems.
IBM i has long been known as a secure platform on which you can run your business critical applications. However, securing the system requires careful attention to the system-wide security configuration options, managing the authority settings on your data objects which contain your business critical data (corporate assets), and - as importantly - staying current with your enterprise-wide maintenance and ensure the latest PTFs/Fixes are installed in order to close "real" or "potential" security holes.
