Playtech confirms Penrose appointment

first_img Tags: Online Gambling Topics: People Penrose will join the company’s board on September 1 Playtech has this morning (Tuesday) confirmed the appointment of Ian Penrose as a non-executive director amid reports that he has been lined up to take over as chairman.Penrose served as chief executive of Sportech from 2005 to 2017, prior to which he had a spell in the same role at Arena Leisure from 2001 until 2005.In addition, Penrose is currently non-executive chairman of England’s National Football Museum in Manchester, as well as a strategic and operational adviser to Alizeti Capital on the acquisition of the UK Tote.Penrose will join the Playtech board on September 1 and become a member of the Audit, Risk and Compliance, Remuneration and Nominations committees.Playtech chairman Alan Jackson said: “Ian led the business turnaround and international repositioning at Sportech and will bring knowledge of the US gambling market in particular, having led strategic initiatives in the region over the last eight years, and has been personally licensed in several states.“His deep sector experience makes him a valuable addition and we look forward to working with Ian, who will bring a fresh and insightful perspective to board discussions.”Confirmation of the appointment comes after reports at the weekend suggested Penrose was being lined up to take over as chairman at the company.According to The Times, Penrose is viewed internally as a long-term replacement for Jackson, whose position as chairman has come under scrutiny in recent times.In May, 35.2% of investors voted against re-electing Jackson, who has been in the role since 2013.Playtech, which issued a profit warning last month, is due to post its financial results for the first half of the year on Thursday.

LBA Ware Issues Q4 2020 Loan Compensation Report, Includes Summary of 2020 Loan Originator…

first_img WhatsApp Twitter By Digital AIM Web Support – January 27, 2021 Strong volume and additional headcount results in total loan compensation paid out up over 100% compared to Q4 of last year MACON, Ga., Jan. 27, 2021 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — LBA Ware™, a leading provider of incentivecompensation management (ICM) and business intelligence software solutions for the mortgage industry, today released summary statistics on the state of mortgage industry incentive compensation in the fourth quarter of 2020 and loan originator (LO) commissions for the year as a whole. The firm’s analysis of data from its CompenSafe ™ ICM platform shows that robust refinance and purchase loan volume in Q4 contributed to markedly higher earnings for both LOs and loan processors in 2020 when compared to the same period in 2019. Methodology LBA Ware reviewed account data for mortgage lenders who used CompenSafe to automate incentive compensation throughout the fourth quarters of 2019 and 2020. The controlled, sample dataset consisted of retail, first-lien production from LOs and processors with at least six funded loans during the three-month period beginning October 1, 2020, and ending December 31, 2020. LBA Ware also reviewed full 2020 calendar-year production for the same sample dataset. Q4 2020 Key Findings Total loan volume funded increased 106% in Q4 2020 compared to Q4 2019.LO headcount increased 27% year-over-year.Average individual production in Q4 2020 was $2.6M per month, an increase of 63% from $1.6M in Q4 2019.Per-loan LO commissions held relatively steady, decreasing 0.2% from 105.4 basis points (BPS) in Q4 2019 to 105.2 BPS in Q4 2020.Purchase volume grew 71% year-over-year with LOs averaging $1.35M in funded purchase loans per month in Q4 2020 (a 38% increase from $0.98M in Q4 2019) and receiving on average 111.1 BPS per purchase loan (up from 109.1 BPS in Q4 2019).Refinance volume grew 158%, accounting for 51% of total volume funded in Q4 2020 (versus only 41% of total volume funded in Q4 2019). LO commissions on refinance loans remained steady at 99.3 BPS in Q4 2020 compared to 99.2 BPS in Q4 2019.Processor headcount increased 51% year-over-year, allowing this group to handle 99% more loan files in Q4 2020 compared to Q4 2019.Per-loan bonus compensation earned by processors increased 21% to $128 per loan in Q4 2020 ($106 in 2019), earning processors an average production bonus of $2,503 per month ($1,569 in 2019). 2020 Loan Originator Commission Trends On average, LOs funded $20.4M in annual volume in 2020, with transactions split evenly at 50% purchase loans, 50% refinance loans.Per-loan commissions earned by LOs in 2020 averaged 105.5 BPS, with refinance loans averaging 100.2 BPS and purchase loans averaging 110.6 BPS. “Low interest rates flamed an increased demand for mortgage activity, which in turn benefited LOs and processors. They were rewarded for their long hours with robust compensation checks,” said LBA Ware Founder and CEO Lori Brewer. “As rates are predicted to rise in 2021 and for several years to come, loan teams that wish to maintain their earnings would do well to put a strategy in place that enables them to offset waning refi volume with more purchase volume.” About LBA Ware™: LBA Ware is a leading provider of cloud-based software for mortgage lenders.

Columbus, Ohio, police officer relieved of duty after fatal shooting of Black man

first_imgkali9/iStockBy WILLIAM MANSELL, ABC News(COLUMBUS, Ohio) — A Columbus, Ohio, police officer has been relieved of duty following the fatal shooting of a 47-year-old Black man Tuesday, Mayor Andrew Ginther announced.“Early this morning, we learned of the killing of another African American at the hands of law enforcement. Our community is exhausted,” Ginther said at a press conference Tuesday.One “fact that disturbs me greatly,” Ginther said, is that the officers involved did not turn their body cameras on until after the shooting. The mayor said a feature of the camera records the 60 seconds prior to it being turned on, but the “look back function” does not have audio.That means, Ginther said, authorities do have video of the shooting, but no audio of what the officer or victim said in the lead-up to the fatal encounter. This footage, officials said, also shows there was a delay in rendering first aid to the victim following the shooting.The mayor expects the video to be released Wednesday.“It is unacceptable to me and the community that the officers did not turn on their camera,” Ginther said during the press conference. “Let me be clear, if you’re not going to turn on your body-worn camera, you cannot serve and protect the people of Columbus.”The identities of the officer and the victim have not been released.Authorities are waiting for the next of kin to be notified before releasing the victim’s name. The city is also letting the family view the footage of the shooting before it’s released publicly.The incident began at 1:37 a.m. Tuesday, when officers were dispatched to a “non-emergency” disturbance call from a neighbor who allegedly saw a man sitting in an SUV for an extended period of time while repeatedly turning the vehicle on and off, according to the Columbus Department of Public Safety.After officers arrived, authorities said officers saw a garage door open and a man inside. Based on one of the responding officer’s “look back” body camera footage, the man walked toward the officer with a cellphone in his left hand. His right hand was not visible.An unidentified officer then shot the man, police said, who was taken to Riverside Hospital, where the victim was pronounced dead at 2:25 a.m.“The preliminary investigation indicates the man shot was visiting someone at the home. A weapon was not recovered at the scene,” the Department of Public Safety said in a statement.Neither of the responding officers turned their body cameras on until after the victim was shot.“The Division invested millions of dollars in these cameras for the express purpose of creating a video and audio record of these kinds of encounters,” Columbus Police Chief Thomas Quinlan said in a statement Tuesday. “They provide transparency and accountability and protect the public, as well as officers, when the facts are in question.”The Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation is handling the investigation. While the officer had his gun and badge taken away pending the investigation, he will be paid according to the union contract.“This is a tragedy on many levels,” Quinlan said. “Most importantly, a life has been lost. That must be our focus going forward. … Our community deserves the facts. If evidence determines that laws or policies were violated, officers will be held accountable.”“The compounding heartbreak of learning an unarmed Black man was killed last night by a Columbus police officer is beyond description,” the Columbus City Council said in a statement Tuesday. “Thoughts and prayers cannot soothe this pain, and the members of Columbus City Council are beyond frustrated at this senseless death. Too many families in our community are mourning at a time when we should be seeking peace and hope.”Tuesday’s incident comes just a few weeks after the shooting death of another Black man in Columbus. Casey Goodson Jr., 23, was fatally shot while entering his home by Franklin County Sheriff’s Office Deputy Jason Meade on Dec. 4.Meade, who had been taking part in a search for a fugitive along with the U.S. Marshals Service, said Goodson — who was not the target of the search — waved a gun at him when he drove by his police car. Meade confronted Goodson outside his home, and he refused to drop his gun, U.S. Marshal Peter Tobin said at a press conference earlier this month.But Goodson’s family said he was returning from a dentist appointment and had a Subway sandwich in his hand, according to family co-counsel Sean L. Walton.In Goodson’s death, there was also no body camera footage, because Franklin County Sheriff’s task force officers are not issued body cameras.The fatal shooting sparked outrage and protests among the community, and is currently under investigation by the FBI and local authorities.ABC News’ Haley Yamada contributed to this report.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

Thrive with the Confidence of Cyber Resilience

first_imgCybersecurity. Just hearing that word sends chills up and down the spines of most IT folks I know. It is a complex and unrelenting challenge every company wrestles with as they embark on or continue their digital transformation. It is the “thing that keeps you up at night” and is the #1 subject on the minds of every public and private Board of Directors.On that topic, it isn’t every day you have the opportunity to claim cybersecurity enhancements across your entire portfolio. Today, Dell Technologies is expanding on our foundation of cybersecurity features that help establish and maintain a secure IT ecosystem, from the edge to the core and the cloud. These elements, separately and combined, are intended to bolster your trust and confidence in Dell Technologies as the primary source of IT solutions in today’s digital era.Our story is quite simple for this announcement – battling cybersecurity is about starting strong, staying strong, and outmaneuvering threats. It sounds simple on paper, but it is not simple in execution. Let me take you through what we’re doing to enhance our systems’ intrinsic security so you can focus on your customer and driving your business.Start StrongStarting strong is about laying down a trusted IT infrastructure foundation. That foundation starts with the silicon design and permeates the system’s lifecycle, from supply chain management to manufacturing, delivery, production, and retirement – all from a single, trusted vendor. In this domain, we’re introducing Dell Technologies Secured Component Verification, part of our Cyber Resilient Architecture for PowerEdge servers. Secured Component Verification provides “as-built” hardware validation upon delivery to ensure that nobody has modified your new systems’ hardware configuration in transit.Complementing this capability for Dell Trusted Devices is the new Dell SafeSupply Chain solution, which  delivers additional layers of supply chain security and integrity controls to what are already the industry’s most secure commercial PCs. The new services include tamper-evident seals and a NIST compliant hard drive wipe.We’re formalizing our service offerings for Enterprise customers to simplify system lifecycle management. With services such as Keep Your Hard Drive for Enterprise and Keep Your Component for Enterprise, customers maintain complete control over failed parts, never letting sensitive data out of their sight. With Data Sanitization for Enterprise and Data Destruction for Enterprise services, data residing on end-of-life systems is secured in accordance with NIST 800-88 standards. New to this offering is the ability to offer onsite service as well as the capability to sanitize 3rd party systems, delivering a more complete portfolio that serves evolving customer needs.Stay StrongStaying strong is about being constantly vigilant, looking over the horizon for emerging threats, and providing solutions before there is a (big) problem. This involves systems going into production as well as live systems with critical customer data. Here we’re offering Dell EMC PowerEdge UEFI Secure Boot Customization to address industry-wide firmware certificate authenticity issues. This supports our most secure customers establish and maintain complete control over their server operations. There was recently an industry-wide vulnerability in the Linux GRUB2 bootloader (aka “BootHole”) discovered. Key to the advanced mitigation solution was the use of UEFI Secure Boot Customization. The Dell Technologies implementation of UEFI Secure Boot Customization was highlighted in the National Security Agency (NSA) in their recent technical paper “UEFI Secure Boot Customization.”Staying strong is also about being resilient and coming back stronger when cyberattacks happen. Last week we announced that PowerProtect Cyber Recovery became the first and is currently the only solution to receive endorsement for meeting all of the data vaulting requirements of the Sheltered Harbor standard. Sheltered Harbor is an industry-led initiative created to protect customers, financial institutions, and public confidence in the financial system if a catastrophic event like a cyberattack causes critical systems to fail. PowerProtect Cyber Recovery Solution utilizes a policy-based workflow to securely move business critical data into an isolated environment, preserving and shielding it from invasive cyberattacks. If a major attack occurs, a copy of your most valuable data is secure and ready to restart your IT operations.Outmaneuver ThreatsOutmaneuvering threats is about using every possible advantage to anticipate and mitigate the risks, both outside and inside, aimed at your infrastructure. Here we talk about automation, telemetry, and leveraging AI/ML. For automation, we’re further enhancing Dell EMC OpenManage Ansible Modules. OpenManage Ansible Modules simplifies the automated provisioning, deployment, and updating of PowerEdge servers and modular infrastructure for administrators and developers using RedHat Ansible. For the DevOps team, this integration enables Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Infrastructure as Code (IaC). For the Security team, this enables automated security workflows for configuring user privileges, data storage encryption, secure erasure, and firmware updates, to name just a few.Embedded with every PowerEdge server is the Integrated Dell Remote Access Controller (iDRAC). The iDRAC provides secure, comprehensive, embedded management across the PowerEdge family of servers. iDRAC9 improvements in this release take our unique system lockdown feature to the next level, by locking a NIC to prevent changes to the firmware from the OS and any resident malware. Also, two-factor authentication (2FA) and RSA SecureID support extend the already impressive set of security features available today.Finally, and just as important as everything else outlined here, there is leveraging the telemetry available from iDRAC. The iDRAC sends real-time data for over 5000 different server elements to analytic tools such as Splunk, from CPU utilization to power consumption to network utilization. While the vastness of the available server data is compelling, the value lies in analyzing and learning from the data of all the systems that make up the server infrastructure. This is where the real game of “cat and mouse” is played, where intelligent systems may see early signals of potential attacks and send alerts before the situation turns into a breach. Solutions like CyberSense for PowerProtect Cyber Recovery Solution and Dell Endpoint Security are also available to help you thwart ransomware and malware attacks on your servers, desktops, laptops, and tablets.Confidence from the StartProducts and services, such as the ones we’re announcing today, ultimately have one goal – instill confidence in your IT infrastructure so that your time and energy is spent on innovation and thrilling your customers. Nobody wants to spend all their time chasing shadows, always worried about how severe the next attack will be. We’re here to enable you to be proactive and resilient when it comes to cybersecurity, today and throughout your entire lifecycle.To learn more about all the new cybersecurity elements in this launch please view the our  Security Point of View Paper, explore our Virtual Security Experience and visit our Emerging Technologies page.last_img read more

Little Duders

first_imgOh, the poor lad had his eye so set on first place that he scared himself on the start line, and never could recover to actually pedal as hard as he knows how.My 8-year-old spent the last two months thinking of ways to improve his time so that he could move from second place to first. None of those ways involved actually pedaling faster. Within 10 minutes of the start line he realized what all of that talk can do to a boy’s nervous system, and it wasn’t pretty. His usual cocky smile was replaced with an angst-ridden snarl in front of dead eyes as he gazed across the small crowd of family and friends who had taken the morning to watch him cross the finish line for the fourth time in his life. He had his dad riding with him this time. The thought was that dad would encourage him enough to get him past the other kid – who had his dad with him the last two races. What he hadn’t considered was that with all of mom’s blabbering online that there would be so many more kids to show up – kids who were hungry enough for a win that they were willing to stand up in the pedals and spin them faster than ever before.He started the race fumbling off of the pedals and then lightly spinning in an off-gear no matter how much I cheered from the sides for a harder gear. He cruised through the crowd for his second lap and wouldn’t even make eye contact or give up a lopsided grin. He was still spinning aimlessly in an easy gear, his brow glistening with sweat as kids blew past him. I knew he would be riding the technical bits. That was his forte. But the mood he was in might even cause him to step off of the bike with the thought of something hard in the horizon.At this point I knew that I needed to say nothing other than, “Good Job!” when he finished, and “I’m SO proud of you!” Even with a bad attitude he raked in fifth place. Everyone has an off day, and more than plenty of us have a bad race.Little 3-year-old Wyatt decided that he wanted to race too, and the whole drive up told everyone that he would be in “The Little Duder Race.” He was so proud to have his number mounted to the handlebars of his Strider. He had mastered the two-wheeler a week prior, but was still a little shaky on gravel and grass, so we agreed he would race his Strider, without the pedals. Plus, he wanted to do this race by himself. It was billed as 6 and under, so some kids were huge, on huge bikes. This did not deter tiny Wyatt, who started the race with his game-face on, shouting first for his camelbak and for mom to “GO AWAY!” 1 2last_img read more

House subcommittee slates data security mark-up

first_imgNAFCU lobbyists will closely monitor this week’s House subcommittee mark-up of data security and breach notification legislation that the association has emphasized should include national standards and accountability for merchants, among other things.The House Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Commerce, Manufacturing and Trade discussed a draft bill last week and is set to meet for opening statements for a mark-up late Tuesday. Mark-up of the bill’s provisions is scheduled to begin at noon Wednesday.A letter from NAFCU Vice President of Legislative Affairs Brad Thaler was entered into the record of last week’s discussion of the bill. In that letter, Thaler urged the subcommittee to strengthen the draft legislation by incorporating a strong national data security standard for retailers and requiring rulemaking; and strengthen the exemption for Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act-covered entities.The draft bill is sponsored by Reps. Peter Welch, D-Vt., and Rep. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn.NAFCU continues to press Congress for action on legislation which ensures that: continue reading » 2SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
