AFFIRM Testing Platform 2020 MVP for BlackFin Group

BlackFin Group has released its 2020 performance report, which shows its AFFIRM testing platform contributed significantly to the company’s growth.

Having a robust testing platform ready to go made 2020 a very good year for our company.”

— Lloyd Booth, BlackFin Group CTO

LAGUNA HILLS, CA, USA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — BlackFin Group, a management consulting firm serving the Mortgage Banking Industry, has released its 2020 performance report to internal stakeholders, which shows that the company’s AFFIRM testing platform was embraced by the industry in 2020, contributing significantly to the company’s growth. AFFIRM is a state-of-the-art, blended approach to testing that delivers a cost-effective, accurate and efficient software testing strategy.

“2020 was all about digital lending for many lenders, as they struggled to keep up with volume and consumer expectations,” said BlackFin Group CEO Keith Kemph. “We saw a lot of new technology implemented last year. Testing is always a critical element of this process. Few other IT activities can be as difficult to get right or as costly to get wrong. This was a great opportunity for BlackFin Group and our AFFIRM testing platform.”

New software implementations are complex initiatives. Success is dependent upon a good testing methodology, but manual testing is expensive and time-consuming. AFFIRM combines well designed manual testing with affordable automated testing to tailor testing processes to meet each organization’s unique business processes. AFFIRM leverage's state-of-the-art technology and BlackFin Group’s own testing best practices, which are built upon decades of software implementation experience.

Last year, BlackFin Group worked with banks, credit unions and independent mortgage banks on new implementations as well as software updates and patches to existing solutions.

“Our client engagements may vary from analysis, to advisory, or doing the heavy lifting to implement your business strategy or technology initiative,” said BlackFin Group Chief Operating Officer and CTO Lloyd Booth. “Having a robust testing platform ready to go made 2020 a very good year for our company.”

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.

Governments and Corporations are Responsible for the Death of Small Business

No More Excuses: Small Business Needs Support, Not Lockdowns and Unfair Restrictions

When we complain about a problem and do nothing, we are worst than the problem itself. Canada has always been a country that defined itself on social responsibility. That is what Canadians do!”

— Edward Henry

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — How many small businesses throughout Canada have struggled and closed while many large corporations have flourished and taken bonuses for themselves? Bonuses they have been able to afford because they are subsidizing employee wages and expenses with government contribution.

How many small businesses have been shut down due to health concerns without any data that suggests these same businesses are a greater risk than the large box stores? Why is small business on lockdown while other large essential corporations have been able to operate with almost no restrictions?

When will all business have equal rights?

When will a small business that can operate safely have the same privileged rights of the large corporations and be permitted to stay open?

The bottom line on this entire argument is that classifications of essential and non-essential are discriminatory to small businesses. Most small businesses have made greater efforts to protect their customers than many of the “essential” companies that have been allowed to operate freely with minimal restrictions. Big box stores that often violate capacity and social distancing limits and have only recently been investigated for violations.

The government has made health determinations with little logic, data, or explanation on why retail businesses outside of box stores are unfairly restricted to less capacity.

After two lockdowns and still no plan, there has been no discussion regarding fair treatment for small business. Everyone knows that small businesses are working from an unfair position. Many small business owners have had to take government loans to survive. Current data released by CFIB states that small business owes more than $135 billion. This amount requires repayment to the very government that is locking them down after adjustments they have made to their businesses to become compliant to guidelines that are ambiguous. The data from various departments are conflicting and inaccurate.

It is time for the government to balance the scale. Large corporations should be in partnership with small business, not sending business out of Canada. Businesses that have been unfairly treated deserve greater tax breaks and loan forgiveness based on the financial struggles that have been exacerbated by the continued mismanagement of poorly thought-out restrictions.

SmAll Business is Essential is an initiative created by Edward Henry Company and Social Distance Management. Our goal and function is to advocate on behalf of suffering small business due to the lack of support and unfair treatment from various government restrictions. The interest expressed by many small businesses throughout Canada, and even the United States for SmAll Business is Essential to help struggling small businesses has evolved to becoming more than a cause. It is now become an organization that will be on the front lines to fight for the rights of small businesses.

It is time for Canadians to be socially responsible and ensure that fairness is included in the metrics that we are using when governing through these difficult times. It is time to give small business support, and allow them the same rights that have been allotted to large corporations for over a year.

The restrictions put on businesses should reflect the health and safety threat, the business’ ability to manage their space and people, and the quantified rate/metric of spread in a specific region.

We are currently raising finances for businesses that are complying with health and safety recommendations and guidelines to stay open. We are advocating to keep business in Canada and to support small business. Edward Henry Company will be donating 50% of the proceeds from it’s recent new book release Cut The Bullsh*T to SmAll Business is Essential of Canada. Small businesses across Canada are done paying the price. Small businesses are going to unite and stand up to government and big business, because SmAll Business is Essential.
