Why Web Security Is Imperative for the Modern Corporation

Think of how much of your company’s daily operations rely on a stable online network to run, and then imagine what would happen if that were to be compromised.

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — We don’t live in the wild west anymore. Modern day robberies aren’t done by masked outlaws who break in take money – they’re done by sophisticated hackers who can rob unwitting companies blind without them even knowing. For any SMB or enterprise corporation, cyber security must be taken extremely seriously, as with the massive integration of tech with the daily operation of corporations, if a system is hacked and taken down, or data is stolen, it can be absolutely detrimental to the company and cost them not only money, but also client trust, which is often worth even more.

Cyber attacks can often be dismissed as a non-issue or something that takes the backburner. Even when a company will hire out a full security team to guard the actual premises, they may take a more relaxed approach to their online security and data protection. The truth though is that a company’s online security needs to be held at the same – or higher – standard as their physical security measures. The bottom is that not only is there as big a threat online compared to physical, but the effects of an online attack can be astronomical, there’s no telling exactly how much damage a hacker can do to a company’s online system or what information they can steal until it happens.

So what can your company do to prevent an online attack?
What if instead of being reactionary with cyber security measures, your company was proactive? There are cyber security agencies that employ their own “hackers” who can test your online system (referred to as Penetration Testing, or pentesting for short) to find any vulnerabilities, and see what data they can extract. They then provide feedback and a plan on what you can do to secure your systems and protect the data.

In addition to seeing what outside hackers can get access to in your system, these penetration testing companies also conduct internal penetration tests which see what information is accessible via an internal attack. To test this, the pentesting company will take the different access levels that each of your employees have and test the internal network to see if there is any additional data that they would have access to that they are not supposed to see. Again, they would then provide a full report of their findings, and a plan to fix any weaknesses in the systems to mitigate the risk of an actual attack.

Just think of how much of your company’s daily operations rely on a stable online network and need access to various programs to run, and then imagine what would happen if that were to be compromised. This is why cyber security needs to be of paramount importance to corporations. With a properly secured network, your company can save time, money, and protect sensitive data and hold onto the trust of your clients and customers.

New Survey Reveals 46% of Bronx Residents will Take the Vaccine

The Thinkubator

The Bronx Community Foundation

The Thinkubator and The Bronx Community Foundation conducted a survey of NYC residents on the Covid-19 Vaccine. 46% of Bronxites will take the Vaccine.

BRONX, NY, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bronx, New York: The Think Tank at The Thinkubator under the leadership of Dr. Lessie Branch and The Bronx Community Foundation have conducted a study on the Covid-19 Vaccine. The survey was conducted between February 11 – February 14 of 500 New York City residents utilizing SurveyMonkey’s powerful online survey platform. The survey sought to better understand respondents' knowledge of the vaccine, where they received their information from, whether they would take the vaccine or not, and reasons for their decisions regarding the vaccine. The survey results revealed that 59% of New York City residents will take the vaccine while 46% of Bronxites will receive the vaccine.

Other findings:
57% of respondents had a positive position on the vaccine and have significant information to make a decision about taking the vaccine while 15% had a negative view of the vaccine.
58% report learning about the Covid-19 vaccine from the news while 18% indicated that social media is where they’ve learned about the vaccine.
26% indicated that they would not take the vaccine even if required by their employer to work while 65% indicated that if their employer required the vaccination to physically attend work that they would take the vaccine.
When asked what factors are influencing your decision on whether you will take the vaccine or not? Respondents indicated
46% family
28% friends
37% medical professional
25% history of vaccinations
36% Covid-19 infection and death rates
When asked what concerns did respondents have? 31% repondent the potential side effects of the vaccine while 24% did not have any concerns about the vaccine.

Responses for Bronx residents reveal the following:
35% have a neutral opinion of the Covid-19 vaccine.
54% believe they have enough information about the vaccine to make an informed decision.
60% learned about the vaccine from the news.
46.2% stated that they will take the Covid-19 vaccine.
A large portion of Bronxites stated that family and the Covid-19 infection and death rates are influencing their decisions about the vaccine.

“The results are interesting when comparing and contrasting the Bronx to the rest of New York City residents.” Said Dr. Edward Summers, President and CEO of The Thinkubator. “The Bronx residents have a higher hestiatation rate when asked whether they will take the vaccine or not. Roughly, 13% fewer Bronxites will take the vaccine compared to nearly 60% of New York City residents. This indicates that we need to continue to think about ways to provide factual information to Bronxites.”

Dr. Lessie Branch, Director of The Think Tank at The Thinkubator stated “There is a desperate need for transformational relationships and not simply transactional relationships to overcome the centuries of distrust of people of color in the government and the medical community. Often as it relates to communities like the Bronx, the frame is one where management by crisis is the modus operandi. Things happen in a reactionary manner and the result is shortsighted policy leading to confusion and distrust. While in the instant case of COVID-19 a reactionary response to creating a vaccine is the proper response, that Black and Brown folk, women and communities like the Bronx have been treated as mere transactions for so long and have not had the benefit of trusted and established relationships, there are fewer residents who express confidence in the COVID-19 vaccine. It is my hope that this can be a teachable moment where those who are in power can really extrapolate the importance of establishing meaningful community relationships as a way to advance public goods and positive public outcomes.”

Desmon Lewis, Co-Founder of The Bronx Community Foundation said “With The Bronx being the unhealthiest part of New York State, our residents have been severely impacted by COVID-19. Although the Government moved swiftly in the creation of the vaccine, our community remains skeptical given previous government intervention in these types of situations. It is clear from the survey we executed that it is vitally important that Bronxites, and other residents across the City, are educated and continue to be given the information they need about the vaccine to ensure they could make an informed decision. We look forward to continuing to work in the community to support vaccine education for our Bronxites."

About The Think Tank at The Thinkubator:
The Think Tank at The Thinkubator, launched by Dr. Lessie Branch, Associate Professor of Business at Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY), serves as a hub for rigorous academic, scholarly, and professional research that supports the documentation and evaluation of The Thinkubator activities, seeks to understand The Bronx as a contested, complex urban form, and addresses narratives of marginalized – Black, Brown, Female, and low-income communities. The Think Tank conducts research and analysis, provides youth with a platform to conduct and produce research, and produces policy briefs and reports for public discourse. The Think Tank is part of The Thinkubator, Inc. a bronx-based innovation and workforce development nonprofit organization.

The Fundamentals of Yield Management & Dynamic Pricing

Yield management finds the optimal balance of supply and demand, where the price perfectly meets the demand.

Yield management finds the optimal balance of supply and demand, where the price perfectly meets the demand.

Finding that sweet spot where your price perfectly matches the demand is when your rates will “yield” the most amount of sales and revenue.

Even if we hired a full-time person to set rates, we couldn’t post hundreds of rates multiple times a day or analyze the results the way Smarking’s dynamic pricing does.”

— Rick West, CEO of Millennium Parking

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — What’s Yield Management?

Yield management is a variable pricing strategy based on the principle of maximizing the revenue from a fixed, limited resource. It finds the optimal balance of supply and demand, where the price perfectly matches the demand. This is the sweet spot where your rates will “yield” the highest number of demand at the highest possible price. If you order an Uber at three different times of the day – you’ll get three different rates, depending on the number of cars available (supply) and the amount of people who requested a ride (demand). That is a yield management pricing strategy.

Yield Management and Parking

Yield management pricing strategies work best when the following conditions are met:

– Inventory is perishable
– Product is sold in advance
– Demand fluctuates

Industries where yield management strategies work well include: ride share, hotels, airline, and parking. All have a fixed amount of inventory that needs to be priced based on the demand and the remaining amount of inventory available. If a can of soda is on the shelf one day and sold the next day – there is no loss. Whereas, a parking spot is open all day – that revenue is lost forever, making yield management strategies vital in parking.

Traditional Pricing Strategies

For decades, the pricing of parking inventory has been largely based on: competition, location, and historical performance. It does not consider the demand of the market nor does it price inventory appropriately given the remaining daily supply. Typically, prices are updated yearly, seasonally, or at best – monthly. It is a slow and time-consuming process that is inefficient and leaves thousands of dollars on the table monthly. In today’s world, since this process can be automated, companies that rely on traditional pricing methods will soon find themselves edged out by the competition.

The Mobile Movement in Parking

It’s estimated that about 30% of traffic is caused by drivers searching for parking. To reduce the congestion and stress that comes with looking for an available spot, the demand for parking reservation apps is growing, and now more than ever, commuters are reserving their space before they leave their home. Overall the U.S. is behind the curve in terms of adopting mobile reservations, currently under 20%. In China, over 90% of parking transactions are processed online. Currently, the US parking market is a $131 billion dollar industry and is only growing. It’s estimated that within the next 10 years, more than half of all US parking transactions will be completed digitally. The direction of the parking industry is clear – it’s critical to expand your parking operations to online channels. Your competitors will continue to improve their online presence and shift parkers away from your facilities. Behaviors are changing – commuters are searching and securing spots before they go.

Do Online Sales Channels Cannibalize Transient Traffic?

One of the major hesitations operators have with online reservations apps is the perception that the online traffic is taking away, or converting, their transient visitors. However, after a year and hundreds of thousands of transactions, the data consistently shows a neutral impact on transient demand. Most drivers have their preferred method of parking – either drive-up or pre-paid reservation. Visitors that prefer to just drive-up continue to do so, and those who use reservation apps, consistently use the app when visiting new or repeated locations. It’s very rarely the case that drivers check and compare both options. By opening up spaces on an online sales channel, you’re simply allowing a new segment of visitors to find your garage.

A recent doctoral study by Todd Tucker, SVP of Market Development at Arrive, showed that online sales channels proved to create additional demand parking. The study was conducted at 30 parking locations, over the course of 180 days, totaling 5,400 total observations.

Results Of The Study Indicated That Online Sales Channels:

– Contribute a significant amount of revenue contributor to brick-and-mortar facilities
– Improve revenue per space
– Attracted new commuters
– Do not cannibalize the demand of transient parkers

Implementing Yield Management in Your Parking Operations

To effectively implement a yield management strategy, you need to have an idea of how changing the pricing will affect the demand for your product.

– High demand = higher price to optimize the revenue opportunity
– Low demand = lower price to encourage and increase demand

But by how much?

How high can the rate increase before the cost makes commuters turn away and returns diminish? To determine this, it’s important to monitor the change in the number of transactions after a rate change has been implemented. You can take the percentage change and divide it by the percentage change in price. The challenge with this approach is that it’s virtually impossible for a human to do this fast enough to keep up with the rapidly changing demands of the market. Now that demand data has become available, parking operators can enable and automated a true demand-based pricing approach.

Northeast Florida Shopability Saturday Event Inspires Public to Support Businesses that Hire Individuals with IDDs

March 6 Community Celebration Will Be First of Its Kind

The Shopability map gives our community a tangible tool to identify and patronize those businesses while showing our neighbors with IDDs how much their inclusion is valued.”

— Sarah Troup, director of Connectable.

JACKSONVILLE, FLORIDA, USA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Businesses that hire individuals with intellectual and development differences (IDDs) are the focus of an innovative new initiative launching next month in Northeast Florida. The inaugural Shopability Saturday event encourages Jacksonville residents to patronize – either in person or online – one of the area’s IDD-inclusive employers throughout the day on March 6.

More than 130 such companies are featured on a searchable map, which was created by organizers of the Connectable movement – an initiative developed to highlight the region’s unique system of support for those with Autism, Down syndrome and other IDDs as well as the value these people offer. The employers featured on the Shopability Saturday map include uniquely abled individuals on their teams, whether through employment, internships, or serving as a job site in partnership with a nonprofit, said Sarah Troup, director of Connectable.

“The Shopability map gives our community a tangible tool to identify and patronize those businesses while showing our neighbors with IDDs how much their inclusion is valued,” Troup said. “We hope this event encourages communities across the country to build on these efforts so that we can create a more inclusive workplace for all Americans with IDDs.”

Organizers say the event is the first of its kind in the country specifically centered around businesses that hire individuals with IDDs. Participating employers include the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, Firehouse Subs, VyStar Credit Union, and more.

Research from the Institute for Corporate Productivity shows that people with IDDs bring hard work, diversity, and value to the workplace – with 84 percent of employers reporting these employees as highly dependable and 70 percent citing that individuals with IDDs support workplace culture. Yet, National Core Indicators reports that 84 percent of individuals with IDDs did not have paid community employment in 2018. In Florida, this rate is even higher – coming in at 90 percent.

This event is made possible through the generosity of Delores Barr Weaver, community philanthropist and former co-owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Those interested in learning more about Shopability Saturday can visit ConnectableJax.com/Shopability.

Founded by community philanthropist Delores Barr Weaver, Connectable unites individuals and organizations to shine a spotlight on the positive contributions that people with intellectual and developmental differences (IDDs) make in our lives and community.
