I have worked very hard to project a "normal" persona. And now I am to have it undone in an instant just to prove Watson is smart? I think not.
Several of the magazines that I read publish a knowledge test each month. That, combined with the questions I receive on a regular basis, made me think that you may enjoy an IBM i security quiz.

Editor's note: This article introduces the white paper
IBM i customers often run multiple back-office applications on the IBM i server and it is a well-known repository for sensitive information and an active target of cyber criminals and state actors. In this eBook we discuss the core requirements for a successful active monitoring strategy, how to identify sources of security information on the IBM i platform, and steps you can take to implement an IBM i active monitoring solution.
