Another day, another data breach in the news. You tune it out—unless the details are as juicy as the Sony hack. Your corporate data and applications are safe on an IBM i server that your go-to IT guy set up years ago. No worries here!
But then your new system admin notices some strange activity on the network and realizes your system was breached ten months ago. That server you thought was so well-protected? Turns out, there were some security gaps that had never been addressed. With the legal fees and all the bad press, it might take just as long for the company to recover from the data theft.
