SAFE International Launches Brampton Private Self Defense Lessons – Brampton, ON Self Defense

SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include private self defense lessons in Brampton, ON

Brampton, ON, March 13, 2012 - (Straight Line PR) - Brampton Self Defense, SAFE International Launches Brampton Private Self Defense Lessons.

SAFE International ™ is the leading provider of mobile self defense/personal protection training in Ontario. SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 clients in the private, corporate and high school environments since 1994. SAFE International is expanding its seminar options to include private self defense lessons in Brampton, ON.

SAFE International realizes that both women and men don’t necessarily want to join a martial arts club, or even take a public self defense seminar. SAFE International provides their mobile self defense right in the home. This allows SAFE International instructors to tailor the course based on the specific needs and concerns of the client. Self defense training in the home allows the client to be completely relaxed and comfortable training, without being self-conscious of others who might be watching in a public self defense course.

One of the reasons that SAFE International enjoys teaching private self defense Brampton, is how receptive men and women are to the skills that the SAFE International instructors provide. SAFE International teaches self defense concepts, rather than techniques. This allows the client to learn in a much shorter time. While some people have hours to dedicate to training, SAFE International can offer some basic, but effective self defense concepts in just a few hours.

SAFE International always covers Awareness and Avoidance strategies which are based on one's daily routines such as using elevators, car safety, home safety, plus much more.  We examine what an attacker looks for, what an attacker wants and doesn't want in confrontation. One of the biggest topics we explore is how most people are too polite, even when their intuition is telling them the complete opposite. We cover the most common distraction techniques an attacker will use to gain an advantage such as asking for directions or the time. The next stage is verbal strategies in the event that avoidance is no longer possible.  Rather than just teaching to yell at a potential attacker, SAFE International covers a few verbal strategies based on the aggressor and the scenario.

The third step is addressing the physical aspect of Brampton private self defense lessons. Instructors begin with the advantages of adopting a passive stance rather than an aggressive stance.  SAFE teaches gross motor strikes due to the adrenal rush one gets when they are in a highly stressful state such as an attack scenario. Complex skills are proven to be ineffective in the high stress of real violence. The main philosophy taught is to “Attack the Attacker" which reverses one from being the Prey, to that of being the Predator.

SAFE International does not teach martial arts, but rather, practical, easy to adopt and highly effective concepts. Brampton Private Self Defense is available to individuals, families, couples, or friends.

SAFE International has taught more than 150,000 clients including mothers, fathers, daughters, police officers, seniors, and people with disabilities. To contact SAFE International and Chris Roberts to schedule your Self Defense Private lessons, you can visit their main site at

Compliance Solution Adds Another 64 Controls To Stay Ahead Of Regulatory Onlsaught

New Haven, CT, March 13, 2012 - Continuity Control, a financial technology company built to help community banks and credit unions meet their growing compliance requirements, today reported that 64 new controls have been added to its platform since the beginning of the year.

Built with automated controls to meet Compliance, IT, and Safe and Sound Banking requirements, the Continuity Control solution continuously identifies new or updated regulations that could affect a community bank. The Continuity Control solution has been specifically designed to reduce a community financial institution’s compliance efforts while insulating it from the cost of regulatory changes.

The firm reports that 645 rule alerts have been issued by the individual regulatory agencies over the past five years, plus hundreds of subsequent updates.

With new alert and updates coming weekly, changes can be handled with intelligence and efficiency to match the volume.

According to Travis Colquett, Vice President and Compliance Officer at First Citizens Bank in Luverne, AL, the Continuity Control platform eliminates the need to purchase separate tools to deal with various components of compliance.

“Working with my Continuity Control strategist, we identified eight to ten different areas that needed controls, and within a couple weeks they were in place,” says Mr. Colquett, who is a former FDIC examiner. “Once I set them, I never have to touch them again. And If someone on my staff leaves, I only have to reassign a new person to that role, which is a ten-second task.”

BancVue Escalates War on Megabanks with Launch of Kasasa 360

Latest Kasasa Advancement Drives Powerful Benefits To Consumers And Community Financial Institutions Alike

Nashville, March 13, 2012 - BancVue, creator of Kasasa®, the powerful national brand of banking products built specifically for community financial institutions, today announced the launch of Kasasa 360, the firm’s latest and most forceful volley yet in its ongoing war with the megabanks.

Kasasa 360 provides account holders around-the-clock access to personal finance management (PFM) tools through an online and mobile-based platform. Designed to deliver a user experience that leapfrogs even the best megabank systems, the latest Kasasa innovation allows consumers to securely aggregate and manage all of their financial products, including those they hold at other financial institutions.

The Kasasa 360 advancement is a planned expansion of BancVue’s wildly popular Kasasa brand.

BancVue introduced Kasasa in 2009 as way for community financial institutions to unite forces under a national brand in order to take on big banks. To date, a total of 130 banks and credit unions across 38 states have joined the brand alliance to pool their advertising and marketing resources under the Kasasa brand and offer more competitive products to their customers.

Following the success of Kasasa, nearly 150 community financial institutions around the nation have already signed on to offer Kasasa 360. The extraordinary reception comes as no surprise to Gabriel Krajicek, chief executive officer of BancVue.

“Kasasa 360 provides banking consumers with a complete financial dashboard for all of their finances at the same time it provides community banking institutions an unprecedented opportunity to expand the customer relationship,” says Mr. Krajicek. “In other words, we’re bringing the Kasasa brand full circle. This is a huge win for everybody except the megabanks.”

Beyond deepening the account holder relationship and increasing client retention, the Kasasa 360 platform has been designed to help participating community banks and credit unions drive greater revenues and facilitate more cross-sales activities.

“In order to stay ahead of the competition, you have to be ready to offer your clients the next big thing in banking,” says Gray Flora, EVP of BankFirst Financial Services in Macon, Mississippi. “We feel that Kasasa 360 is the next big thing and we’re eager to make it available to our community.”

Krajicek expects Kasasa to double its membership by the end of 2012 and reach 1,000 clients in three to five years. If growth continues as projected, BancVue’s Kasasa will soon represent a branch network larger than Bank of America, Chase, or Wells Fargo and have a $100 million marketing budget that will rival the media spend of any megabank.

“Community institutions used to view every other bank or credit union serving their communities as a competitor," says Krajicek, “now they’re recruiting each other to join the fight. This truly is unprecedented.”

“Megabanks remain the biggest threat to our continued success,” said Troy Robinson, president and CEO of BankTexas. “We are now realizing that our best chance for winning market share is to unite and take them on together.”

About BancVue
BancVue is the leading provider of innovative products, world-class marketing, and data-driven consulting solutions to community financial institutions across the U.S. Featuring offerings like Kasasa®, a dynamic suite of banking solutions that make a difference with innovative accounts and money management tools, BancVue products are designed to deliver controlled new account growth, higher profitability, and increased customer retention.
