Date-handling in jQuery is so much easier with moment.js.
By Jan Jorgensen
In the last tip, I showed you the fundamentals of moment.js, and I hope that got you started. This tip will show you some more basics and hopefully increase your interest in the moment.js plugin.
Sometimes you need to be able to do something at a specific time. In my first example, I show you a way to do that using the “set” function that moment.js provides. My example defines a simple clock that updates every 1 second, and I want to something different every 15 seconds, in this case change the background color in a <div> box.
Carol provides insights on why the insider threat is being ignored and why that might not be a wise business decision.

Whenever I talk to clients or prospective clients and I even mention “insider threat,” I get one of two reactions: either they think I’m crazy (that could never happen because their employees wouldn’t have enough knowledge to do something inappropriate) or they’re offended (because they trust their employees and believe that none of them would ever do something nefarious).

The annual Profound Logic ‘State of IBM i Modernization Survey” takes a look at the trends and attitudes that shape the IBM i modernization market. We reached out to the IBM i community, and the response was outstanding: close to 800 people, nearly 300 more than last year, took the survey. This enthusiasm resulted in very interesting findings for how businesses plan to use and modernize the platform in the coming year.
As you read through each section of the survey, you will see our summary of the results and suggestions for the future. We hope the survey will help your business better understand what is possible for your IBM i platform in the coming year.

Can you trust all of your users all of the time?
A typical end user receives 16 malicious emails each month, but only 17 percent of these phishing campaigns are reported to IT. Once an attack is underway, most organizations won’t discover the breach until six month later.
A staggering amount of damage can occur in that time. Despite these risks, 93 percent of organizations are leaving their IBM i systems vulnerable to cybercrime. In this on-demand webinar, IBM i security experts Robin Tatam and Sandi Moore will reveal:
- How phishing attacks are becoming more sophisticated
- Three little-known ways malicious programs can reach your IFS
- Why the IFS is IBM i’s “Typhoid Mary”
You’ll also learn why some of the most common malware solutions still leave IBM i systems vulnerable—and what you can do to protect your organization.

With thousands of configuration settings and permissions to manage inside of AIX systems, it can seem overwhelming to ensure these systems maintain proper compliance. From users, password services, file, and directory permissions to how file systems are mounted and configured, there are countless elements to be on the lookout for. As you expand this into many different systems and start adding in Linux machines, which have the same compliance rules, and then add in your Windows machines with the same compliance rules, you quickly understand the tremendous scope you are managing, even in a small configuration with a few dozen systems.
