Parking and office politics is one of those topics we have never covered. None of us, editorial or readership, is stuck in that kind of symbolic pecking order nonsense. B2B parking services for special events, on the other hand, is fair game.  Especially if the game is golf.

The INDIGO Group, a parking and urban mobility provider, is celebrating its first year as the parking and mobility provider of the RBC Canadian Open after a two-year pandemic hiatus. The event was held the second week of at Toronto’s St. George’s Golf and Country Club and attracted almost 150,000 spectators.

It was INDIGO’s first year of a long-term collaboration between INDIGO and Golf Canada. To deal with the fleets of cars, INDIGO provided valet parking, self-parking, mobility and digital payment solutions at the RBC Canadian Open for players, RBC executives and spectators.

“The RBC Canadian Open is one of the oldest and most celebrated stops on the PGA Tour and we’re extremely proud to be entrusted with the parking and mobility logistics for this event,” said John Laires, CEO at Indigo Park Canada.  “After two long years, we appreciated the desire for this year’s attendees to enjoy the action on the course without worrying about their journeys to and from the event.  We’re very pleased with how the week unfolded and look forward to providing the players, tournament organizers, spectators and visitors with the same seamless experience in the years to come.”

Security experts may be able to take weekends off soon. An international team of researchers has developed and tested a black box security assessment prototype. The tool created by a team across Australia, Pakistan and the UAE is more effective than existing web scanners which collectively fail to detect the top 10 weaknesses in web applications.

“We found that no single scanner is capable of countering all these vulnerabilities, but our prototype tool caters for all these challenges. It’s basically a one-stop guide to ensure 100 per cent website security,” said Dr. Yousef Amer, of the University of South Australia who is one of the lead authors of the study. “There’s a dire need to audit websites and ensure they are secure if we are to curb these breaches and save companies and governments millions of dollars.”
