first_imgRBC, one of Canada’s largest employers in the financial services sector, has signed an incentive agreement with Nova Scotia Business Inc. to expand in Nova Scotia. It will open a new finance-shared services centre to support new digital image cheque processing operations and a number of finance and accounting services. RBC will create 150 new positions this year in cheque processing, accounts payable and fixed asset accounting. The recruitment program was launched today, March 11, and hiring will begin immediately. Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI) worked with RBC over the past year in choosing Nova Scotia for its new centre. “Nova Scotia Business Inc. is attracting financial services companies like RBC and the high-value jobs they create,” said Laurel Broten, president and CEO, NSBI. “This sector has demonstrated significant growth in Nova Scotia of 21 per cent between 2003 and 2013.” The agreement signed with RBC estimates the potential for up to 500 new jobs within 10 years. If RBC creates 500 new jobs in the next 10 years, the company would add an estimated $240 million in salaries and benefits to the Nova Scotia economy. The new employees would pay provincial personal income taxes of about $26 million. As a result, the company can earn up to a capped $22 million in payroll rebates through Nova Scotia Business Inc.’s Strategic Investment Funds. “Nova Scotia offers what we are looking for to support our new centre,” said Roger Howard, RBC regional president, Atlantic Provinces. “It provides a skilled workforce, supported by leading post-secondary institutions. It has the real estate, technology and infrastructure of a major Canadian urban centre that can support our future expansion. “We are proud to continue our growth in this region which has always been a critical market for us, dating back to when we began in Halifax in 1864 as the Merchant’s Bank.” RBC in Nova Scotia employs over 900 people who serve more than 410,000 clients, from 63 branches and an Atlantic headquarters. Last year, RBC donated more than $1.8 million to local charities in Nova Scotia and RBC employees volunteer extensively across the region in support of local communities. The bank continues to bring events to the region including the Nova Scotia Open/RBC Canada Cup. The new RBC centre will be located in Bedford.

Bit of an IT issue going on at Bristol Airport pic.twitter.com/OI20D4CNrQ— Steve Rushen (@steverushen) September 16, 2018 Spokesman James Gore said: “We believe there was an online attempt to target part of our administrative systems and that required us to take a number of applications offline as a precautionary measure, including the one that provides our data for flight information screens.”That was done to contain the problem and avoid any further impact on more critical systems.”The indications are that this was a speculative attempt rather than a targeted attack on Bristol Airport.” Frustrated passengers took to social media to blast the airport’s “embarrassing service”. Bristol Airport has blamed a “speculative” cyber attack for causing flight information screens to fail for two days.A spokesman said the displays were taken offline early on Friday as a precautionary measure to contain the attack, which has been described as similar to “ransomware”, with holidaymakers having to read departure times off whiteboards scattered around the airport.Ransomware is a form of malware which hijacks computer systems, only returning control to the owner if a ransom is paid.  The airport said no such “ransom” had been paid to return the systems to working order.Most of the screens are now back online, including in areas such as departures and arrivals, and no flights were affected during the attack. Mr Gore added that contingency measures and “manual processes”, such as whiteboards and marker pens, had to be used while the screens were offline. If everything else fails, there is always a man with a Hi-vis jacket and the trusty whiteboard! #emergencyplanning @BristolAirport 🤦🏻‍♂️ pic.twitter.com/lMIufv1DiH— Sammer Tang (@SammerTang) September 14, 2018 “At no point were any safety or security systems impacted or put at risk.”He said it had taken “longer than people might have expected” to rectify due to a “cautious approach”.”Given the number of safety and security critical systems operating at an airport, we wanted to make sure that the issue with the flight information application that experienced the problem was absolutely resolved before it was put back online.” read more
