2017 - BOGI - Youth of the Year-001

The Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Virginia

The Boys and Girls Club of Southeast Virginia paraded a bevy of deserving candidates on stage to stake their claim for the Youth of the Year. Two-time nominee, Taekion Jenkins took home the honor. Mr. Jenkins is a senior at Oscar Smith High School and attends the Governor’s School of Arts in Norfolk. He plans to attend Virginia State University in the fall. A truly amazing young man that has overcome adversity in every stage of life. We would like to recognize and congratulate Mr. Jenkins on his hard work and wish him continued success!
It isn’t often you receive investment advice from your payroll company, but we have a can’t miss opportunity for you. Invest in our youth. That’s what the Boys and Girls Club does every day and the Payday Team has the privilege of joining them in this effort. The Youth of the Year dinner puts the talented boys and girls of the organization on full display. This year was a treat for us as we had three amazing young ladies from the club at our table for dinner. Poised, gracious, intelligent, respectful and talented are just a few words that come to mind. There was no better example of this than Saniyyah Bamberg. Toward the end of the evening, Ms. Bamberg quietly excused herself from the table and to our surprise, took to the stage to perform Rise Up, by Andra Day. In a word, amazing. Her voice lifted spirits and inspired us all. The audience erupted in cheers and a standing ovation. Ms. Bamberg returned to her seat, sat down and enjoyed the moment. This is why we give. To see our youth given the opportunity to realize their potential.

Payday’s 5k Day!

Our good friends at Urology of VA hosted the Zero 5k in the Virginia Zoo to fight Prostate Cancer while longtime friend of the Kline family (and Payday client), Jeff Saunders of Bake Fresh Company, needed our support at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront to continue raising awareness for Diabetes. Two 5k’s in two cities…no problem! Payday Team assemble!!

Mason, Jacob and Danny took the early shift, running with some of our area’s finest Urologists in the Zero 5K at the Zoo. As always, it was a festive event with music, food, good company and, of course, the race. Our team was fortunate enough to spend some time running with Nicole Wood-Sabo, a partner at McPhillips, Roberts and Deans (recently merged with BDO). Nicole has been a friend of Payday for many years, as well as a supporter of the efforts to end Prostate Cancer. We know we speak for Nicole too when we say thank you to Urology of Virginia for allowing us to help sponsor such a wonderful event.

Round two found a larger contingency of the Payday Team at the Oceanfront standing with Jeff Saunders, in his fight to raise awareness for the need to end Diabetes. Jeff was diagnosed with late onset, Type 1 Diabetes, just a few years ago. It was no surprise for us to see Jeff tackle this head on. He has become a local champion for the cause, raising awareness and an incredible amount of money to help fund the research needed to find a cure. We could not be more proud and honored to stand with him throughout his journey.

Achievable Dream Tennis Ball

The 23rd Annual Achievable Dream Tennis Ball was an astounding success!! More than 800 attendees enjoyed a gourmet dinner, live auction, silent auction inspirational speeches and a taped performance of some of the Achievable Dreams’ students. The gala is a who’s who of Hampton Roads. What should not be lost in all of the hoopla, luxury cars and exclusive vacation packages in the auction, is the cause behind the fun.
What started back in 1992 as a summer and after-school tennis and tutoring program for 95 rising fourth graders has grown to public/private partnerships with Newport News Public Schools and Virginia Beach Public Schools which now boast three academies dedicated to the belief that all children can learn and succeed. Education can truly break the cycle of poverty. Payday Payroll is proud to work with An Achievable Dream to continue the legacy started by the late Walter Segaloff nearly 25 years ago. We stand behind his beliefs in hopes of providing some of the most at risks youths an opportunity to succeed. An opportunity they seize every day at an Achievable Dream. If you’re interested in getting involved, we encourage you to visit their website at

Habitat for Humanity Paint Day

Everyone knows the staff at Payday can process payrolls, but did you know we can build houses too? Well, maybe not build houses, but we can sure paint the heck out of one! The Payday team joined up with Habitat for Humanity to help paint a home on the Peninsula. A home going to a family in need. There’s nothing quite like the feeling of being involved in such a tremendous project. The nice folks at Habitat for Humanity should be commended for all the good they do in our community.
2016 - 11 Nov - Here's Mary touching up the trim work
If you’re interested in getting involved, we can tell you from personal experience, aside from the obvious positive impact you’ll have in someone’s life, this is an incredible team building experience. We will definitely be looking for another opportunity to volunteer in the coming months (after year end!)
We encourage you to reach out to the Director of Events, Virginia Staley, at 757-913-5650 or to find out what opportunities are available in your area. Thanks to the entire Habitat for Humanity team for all your wonderful work!

2016 - 10 Oct - Ability Center of VA - Brew N Que

Brew ‘n’ Que (& Oysters too!)

The Ability Center of Virginia (formerly known as Cerebral Palsy of Virginia) threw one heck of party out on the Eastern Shore. The 3rd Annual Brew ‘n’ Que (& Oysters too!) was a huge success. As the name suggests there was barbeque, oysters, beers and great music. Most importantly, there were family and friends coming together for an unbelievably beautiful cause; to celebrate, support and encourage the disabled community. There were contests and games, but the highlight of the day was watching one of the Ability Center of Virginia’s children being serenaded on stage by the band! The Payday team is thrilled to support our good friends at the Ability Center and encourage you to visit their new website at to find out how you can get involved.

2016 - 08 Aug - ADC Golf Tourney

Atlantic Dental Care Golf Tournament

Payday Payroll was proud to support several of the area’s trusted dentists as we drove the beverage cart for the 3rd annual Atlantic Dental Care (ADC) Golf Tournament
The weather was beautiful at Heron Ridge Golf club and we were busy scooting around to each tee box ensuring participants were hydrated throughout the day. While everyone had a fantastic time and awards were handed out at after the tournament, the real winners are the clinics that receive funding from the tournament proceeds. The ADC donates funds to several of our area’s local, free dental clinics including Beach Health Clinic, Chesapeake Care Clinic, Park Place Dental Clinic and Community Free Clinic. They also support the Mission of Mercy project which was held at Green Run High School on April 30th this year. The Dentists of ADC regularly volunteer their time to staff our regions free dental clinics which provide much needed care to the region’s most at risk populations.
The ADC is expecting to donate upwards of $40,000 in 2016! We’re so proud to support their efforts!

2016 - 05 May - Partner in Education

Partner in Education

Payday supports many causes in the community.  Perhaps none more important than the education of our youth.  Payday president Danny Kline works with administration of College Park Elementary through their Partner in Education program.  This program gives local businesses the opportunity to work with a school of their choosing to provide support in any number of ways.

For Danny it was a no brainer.  Payday’s office is located in College Park and that is the neighborhood where he was raised.  As a child he attended College Park Elementary and reached out to them a few years ago to get involved.  Through the years Payday has provided school supplies, sponsored and presented at career day and helped provide awards and incentives for teachers.  Perhaps most satisfying has been the programs to reward and promote the young boys and girls that have shown exemplary improvements in their grades, leadership and social skills.  This has included sponsoring a night out to a show at Sandler Center, the movies and recognizing these model students at graduation, presenting them certificates of achievement (and gift certificates!)

Danny was honored and humbled to be recognized as the College Park Elementary Partner in Education of the Year.  If you’re are interested in find out how your business can get involved, please visit your city public schools website and look for the volunteers/partners section under community.

Cinema Café

The latest edition to the Cinema Café family is in the Edinburgh Shopping center just off the Chesapeake Expressway.  Earlier this month they had an open house to show off the new facility.  Amazing!  This is a state of the art complex, complete with row upon row of fully reclining leather seats in each theatre!  For those unfamiliar with the Cinema Café experience, it’s a unique offering of movies, casual dining and exceptional customer service.  Beverages (non-alcoholic and alcoholic) are available as well.

Payday president Danny Kline and his wife Jennylyn attended the open house to not only congratulate the ownership group on another successful opening, but to applaud them on their upcoming 30 year anniversary in May!!  The owners of Cinema Café have been long time friends of Payday and we couldn’t be happier to share in their success.  If you’re one of the few that have not experienced a movie and dining experience at Cinema Café, please visit their website at for details and show times.

Tastefully Yours 2016

The 23rd Annual Tastefully Yours event was fantastic!  The Virginia Peninsula Foodbank has yet again pulled struck gold with their event.

Row after row of the Peninsula’s finest restaurants providing samples of signature dishes coupled with an assortment of craft beers and wine.  Payday’s team had a blast!

The evening was rounded out with live music, dancing (fortunately, no dancing from the Payday team!), “fun money” gambling, photo booths and so much more.

What’s the best part?  This was all for an excellent cause!  The Virginia Peninsula Foodbank supports the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson and Williamsburg along with the counties of Gloucester, James City, Matthews, Surry and York.  Since 1986, they have provided over 127 MILLION meals to the residents in these areas!  We’re proud of their work and honored by the opportunity to support them.

If you’re interested in helping them further their cause, please visit their website at for more information.

2016 - 02 Feb - Polar Plunge

Polar Plunge

Frigid water? Bathing suits? No problem! In early February at the annual Polar Plunge at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront, members of the Payday team joined forces with Fin-Fit, a longtime Payday client that provides companies with financial wellness strategies. Along with thousands of other people, our two teams ran into the chilly Atlantic Ocean to benefit Special Olympics Virginia.

This year, the event raised over $1 million! This is Payday’s second year participating in the Polar Plunge. We were spoiled in year one with 50 degree temperatures, sunny skies and no breeze. Year two tested our mettle as temps dipped into the low 40’s, the sun hid behind the clouds and there was a constant breeze swirling on the beach. When asked about the conditions, Jacob Linzy (Payday IT specialist) said, “It was definitely a lot colder this year! I couldn’t feel my toes when we came out of the water!” However, we warmed up (at least on the inside) when we heard cheers from the crowd and an endless barrage of “thank you!” from the families of Special Olympic hopefuls.

What a wonderful cause! Until next year, ocean…

2015 - 12 Dec - Volunteer Hampton Roads

VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads Does It Again!

After months of careful preparation and planning, the day was finally here.  Over 1000 members of the Hampton Roads community showed up for the 17th annual Family VOLUNTEER Day at Virginia Wesleyan College in Norfolk.  The Payday Team was proud to be involved.  The work load was massive, but it paled in comparison to the enthusiasm and energy of the volunteers.  Over 16,000 pounds of food was organized, boxed and finally distributed to 14 local non-profits serving our community’s most in need.  Organizations like H.E.R Shelter, Samaritan House, Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank were all recipients of the day’s bounty (and just like Volunteer Hampton Roads, they’re all Payday clients!)

Payday would like to recognize and thank VOLUNTEER Hampton Roads for all they do for our community. For 57 years they have mobilizing citizens to volunteer and inspiring the next generation to get involved.  They have strengthened our local non-profits and been instrumental in engaging local businesses, encouraging them to answer the call.  We couldn’t be more proud of the work you do!

2015 - 12 Dec - SPCA Pints for Pups

Full Hearts and Bellies at Norfolk SPCA Affair

The Norfolk SPCA was at it again, putting the fun in fundraiser!  Hundreds gathered at local brewery in Norfolk to support the SPCA and raise money for our area’s rescue animals.  Norfolk SPCA Executive Director Rob Blizard took the stage and thanked those in attendance for helping the his organization see through on its goal to ensure all pets in Hampton Roads have a loving, forever home.  He then turned the mic over to the band to let the party begin!

While supporters inside enjoyed the tunes and a few brews, those outside visited local vendors and waited in line to order from Ross Riddle of Hashi Food Truck.  That’s where the Payday team spent most of their time.  Fresh made food from one of our area’s most popular food trucks.  Ross was kind enough to donate all proceeds from dessert to the Norfolk SPCA.  Danny Kline, Payday’s president, was more than happy to buy decadent brownie sundaes for the entire team (calories for a good cause!)

2015 - 12 Dec - UROL Zero 5k

Payday takes on the ZERO 5K

Local teams from Urology of Virginia, McPhillips, Roberts and Deans PLC  and Payday Payroll teamed up with other area sponsors to raise more than $50,000 to help fight prostate cancer!  On a brisk winter morning, Payday sent its IT Department (Jacob Linzy and Kasam Hamza) along with its president (Danny Kline) to represent the company in this meaningful 5k.  While they didn’t set any records for speed, they did start and finish the race together, and as usual, had a wonderful time!  The volunteers at the event cheered on the runners at every turn.  In the true spirit of fun, the 5k was not only held at the Virginia Zoo, but the race itself was preceded by a children’s Super Hero Dash for Dads!  How neat to see full families engaged in the effort to end prostate cancer.

A big thank you and congratulations goes to Urology of Virginia for hosting the event and ensuring its success.

The Pantry of Broward’s First Annual B.J. Buntrock Golf Tournament

On October 2, 2015, The Pantry of Broward hosted its first annual B.J. Buntrock Golf Tournament at the Fort Lauderdale Country Club. Elizabeth Betty Joanne Huizenga Buntrock (but known by most as “B.J.”) was a longtime philanthropist and activist who passed away in 2014. In 2008, B.J. founded The Pantry of Broward to provide food to grandparents who raise grandchildren. As well, the organization helps seniors who live on a fixed income.

Payday is proud to support B.J.’s mission and stand beside The Pantry of Broward’s important work in Ft. Lauderdale. Payday Regional Manager Jeff Marbach served on the golf tournament committee and made sure Payday gave its respects to a woman who did so much for our community.


In an article about her life in the Sun Sentinel, Pantry board chair E.J. Spector, said:

“She never liked anybody to clap for her. She just did these things because she was the quiet donor behind the scenes.”

Thanks to B.J.’s generosity, The Pantry has helped thousands of seniors and children throughout Broward County. To learn more about the Pantry great cause, please visit its website.



Broward Partnership for the Homeless hosts 7th annual golf-a-thon

Once again Payday Payroll has had the privilege to participate in the Golf Challenge on behalf of Broward Partnership for the Homeless.  Payday Payroll’s Florida Regional Manager Jeff Marbach is one of only 3 golfers who has played in each tournament since its inception in 2009, and this year the Payday Payroll team was able to raise over $9,000.00 to help Broward Partnership for the Homeless combat homelessness in our community!!  Returning team members, Dr Gary Kodish of the Kodish Dental Group, Ken Schwartz President of Certified Insurance Solutions were joined by Mark Lundy from Henry Schein Dental, received outstanding support from friends, family and business associates on behalf of this very worthy cause.

100% of the funds of this year’s event will go toward the Partnership’s Family Services Program, which provides critically needed services and support for homeless families with children who reside on the Broward Partnership campus.

Broward Partnership for the Homeless CEO, Fran Esposito poses with Team Payday.


The Broward Partnership is committed to reducing homelessness by promoting independence and self-worth through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services. To achieve this mission, the Partnership operates the Broward County Central Homeless Assistance Center/Huizenga Family Campus, a 57,000 square foot, 230-bed emergency homeless shelter situated on 2.7 acres near downtown Fort Lauderdale.  In addition to emergency shelter, clothing and three nutritious meals a day, the Partnership service approach highlights alternatives to living on the street and provides each resident with the tools to reacquire health, housing and employment in a safe and nurturing environment.

Families with children continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population, with an increasing number living on the streets, in cars or other unsafe accommodations. This year the Partnership expanded its campus to accommodate an additional 30 beds for homeless single mothers with children, helping to get more families off the streets and into safe, stable housing as quickly as possible. To date, Broward Partnership has served more than 20,000 homeless men, women and children in Broward County, providing them with the opportunity to help achieve dignified independence and rebuild their lives. For further information, please call 954-779-3990 or visit


Raising money for children with Monarch Bank

Two things we love at Payday Payroll are Children’s Charities and Monarch Bank.  Combine them with a round of golf and we’re in!  Monarch Bank hosted its annual charity golf tournament in September and Payday Payroll was proud to sponsor and support our trusted partner.  To date, this tournament has raised close to $2 million dollars for local children’s charities.  Local organizations such as Achievable Dream, Boys and Girls Club, CASA, Junior Achievement, Samaritan House, Stonebridge School and The Virginia Living Museum have all received donations from Monarch Children’s Charities (side note – all of these magnificent organizations are also Payday clients!)



Neal Crawford, Monarch Bank President, Jeff Benson Chairman of the Board, Terri Ruby, SVP, Andy Kline, Payday CEO, Brad Schwartz, Monarch Bank CEO and Will Morrison, Monarch Mortgage CEO


This year’s tournament came on the heels of our 4 year anniversary with Monarch Bank.  In September of 2011 we finalized our transition from a national bank to the boutique customer service experience provided by Monarch’s Cash Management Team, led by its Director, Terri Ruby.  What a delight to find a banking partner just as committed to customer service as Payday Payroll!  Thank you for always putting the customer first, providing us with the latest technology and online treasury management tools and for being such wonderful corporate citizen.


Hitting the links for Cerebral Palsy of VA

The Payday team recently hit the links in support of an important local cause. On September 10, we participated in the 22nd annual Cerebral Palsy of Virginia Golf Tournament at Heron Ridge Golf Course in Virginia Beach. We’re always happy to support Cerebral Palsy of Virginia, a longtime Payday client that does such critical work in our community. Cerebral Palsy of Virginia serves children and adults in Hampton Roads and along the Eastern Shore who have cerebral palsy and other developmental disabilities like Down syndrome, autism, muscular dystrophy, intellectual disabilities and learning disabilities. The organization also provides help to people with hearing, speech and visual impairments. No, our foursome didn’t take first place in the golf tournament, but that’s OK. We know the big winner is Cerebral Palsy of Virginia and its team that does such important work in our community. Thanks for all you do!

The 2015 Payday Cruise was a HUGE success!  We could not have asked for a better evening.  The sun was shining, there was a nice breeze blowing off the Elizabeth River and the American Rover provided a perfect venue to sight see, mingle and act like a tourist in your home town.  By far, the best part of the cruise is the opportunity we had to meet and greet so many of our new clients.  In the tech world we all live in, nearly all communication is done via email or over the phone.  Rarely do we have the opportunity to meet face to face and enjoy each other’s company.  Thank you to all of our new clients and business partners for giving up a week night to spend time with your local payroll team!  We especially want to thank La Bella Italia for providing our best food to date, Sweet Haven Baked Goods for the cupcakes (a bakery run by H.E.R. Shelter) and of course, The American Rover and her staff for providing an exceptional experience for all in attendance!

ORPHANetwork celebrates 15 years!

In spring of 2000, a few Virginia Beach teenagers returned from a trip to Nicaragua.  These young men and women were so affected by the impoverished condition on the children living on the streets and in underserved orphanages in Nicaragua, they were compelled to act.

Guided by their faith and with the full support of their families and Spring Branch Church, they returned to help a few children at a single orphanage.  The ORPHANetwork was born from these humble beginnings.  They celebrated their 15th anniversary this year and show no signs of slowing down.  Today, the ORPHANetwork has 6 orphanage partners in Nicaragua serving over 300 children in need.  They have also grown a network of supporters, including HOLA (co-founded by Payday CEO, Andy Kline) that work on specific projects like implementing music programs and helping children from the orphanages get into college.

The ORPHANetwork is always looking for volunteers and others willing to further the cause.  If you would like more information, please visit their website at

Why Your Business Needs a Security Audit

Worried about your company’s IT security?

Do you wonder when the next malicious virus will bring your network to its knees?

Does Spyware have all of your network computers running slower than normal?

What’s the financial impact if you are compromised?

The best approach to put these concerns to rest is the use of a comprehensive security audit.

A security audit that does not review all the areas listed below could in fact leave the client exposed and susceptible to information loss, site outage and revenue loss. Here are the seven key components of a comprehensive security audit.

  • Internal network penetration test – The process will test and validate the level of internal security on the client network.  Based on statistics maintained by the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), fifty percent of companies reporting break-ins to their networks and/or business applications state they were compromised by internal attacks.  
  • External network penetration test – This process will test and validate the level of security on all the external entry points for the client business network. Our firm recommends the use of multiple hacking techniques to ensure every possible avenue has been exhausted. 
  • Review of application security – While network security is crucial to ensure proper precautions have been observed, application security is also just as critical.  Numerous known software design exploits are completely avoidable but are routinely undiscovered. 
  • Review of IT physical security – We recommend the physical security at the client be evaluated to ensure that external network and application security cannot be circumvented by an authorized (or unauthorized) person gaining access to the internal network.  
  • Evaluation of intrusion detection precautions – Hackers with or without malicious intent will eventually test even the best security.  With this said, intrusion detection like security becomes essential for detecting the first signs of an attack.  This allows IT personnel to take proper steps to identify the attack, report forensic information to the FBI and shut down the attack.  
  • Evaluation of social engineering (employee readiness) – Many simple approaches can be utilized to gain access to users’ network and application logon credentials. We recommend a test of the current employee readiness against such attacks. 
  • Application capacity test – In addition to security, we also recommend a test of application systems.  Hackers often overwhelm a system with an enormous amount of transactions or erroneous traffic.  Although this does not pose a risk for information loss, it does allow the system to be rendered unusable. 

A security audit is critical to determine if a company is exposed and properly protected from all points of infiltration, both external and internal.

We believe all areas of security be audited annually to minimize the overall corporate risk to information and intellectual property.

How to Stay Protected from Email Scams

Phishing is an attempt by bad actors to obtain your personal information by masquerading as a trustworthy entity. Commonly, phishing attempts occur through email although they may happen through other media as well.

Recently, you may have seen an emails that a product you ordered is ready for pickup at a nearby store although you may not have ordered anything. The “phishing” emails are formatted to look like they came from reputable retailers.

Some tips to keep you protected:

  • Be wary of emails that contain generic greetings like “Dear [Company Name] customer”
  • Don’t trust an unfamiliar email that claims someone has accessed your account information or that you’ve won a special prize you need to claim immediately.
  • Always check where a link is going by hovering your mouse over the link (without clicking it) and looking at the website address in your browser’s status. If it appears suspicious, don’t click the link., provided by the Department of Homeland Security, provides resources to keep yourself safe while online. Their suggestions to avoid phishing attacks include:

  • Don’t email personal or financial information. Email is not a secure method of transmitting personal information.
  • Only provide personal or financial information through an organization’s website if you typed in the web address yourself and you see signals that the site is secure, like a URL that begins https (the “s” stands for secure). Unfortunately, no indicator is foolproof; some phishers have forged security icons.
  • Review credit card and bank account statements as soon as you receive them to check for unauthorized charges. If your statement is late by more than a couple of days, call to confirm your billing address and account balances.
  • Be cautious about opening attachments and downloading files from emails, regardless of who sent them. These files can contain viruses or other malware that can weaken your computer’s security.

If you do receive a phishing email, recommends that you forward It to – and to the company, bank, or organization impersonated in the email. An additional report to the Anti-Phishing Working Group at will notify a group of ISPs, security vendors, financial institutions and law enforcement agencies which use reports to fight phishing.

Cybersecurity: How to Take Action Now

Home Depot and J.P. Morgan Chase have been through it. Apple was shocked that it happened to them. Even Target was hit in the bullseye.

In 2014, these companies, including thousands of others and millions of consumers, were victims of cyber attacks where private customer information was compromised or financial data was stolen. A large company may weather the customer fallout and public relations disaster caused by a security breach, but can your small or mid-size business? 

It is estimated that 60% of small businesses will close within six months of a data breach. Your data can be breached by an outsider or even stolen by a disgruntled employee. With increased mobile users, digital applications and abundant wi-fi networks available when employees are outside of the office, the risk of a cybersecurity attack and data breach has also increased for your business.

Don’t wait until you have an issue—right now is the time to shore up your digital fortress and take steps so that a cyber-attack doesn’t happen in your business.

The first and least expensive measure that every business can deploy is education. Teach your employees to never click on anything in an email from an unknown sender and report it to your IT professional immediately. Not only can an email contain a virus that can affect your entire network, but it might also contain ransomware.  Ransomware, such as CryptoWall, is a piece of software that, when installed on a computer or your network, will virtually lock up or remove a portion or all of your company data. The person who sends it then demands payment to re-institute your data. There is no guarantee that they will, nor that your complete data will be available and accurate.

Another way to educate your employees to keep your network secure is to have established and written IT security, password and acceptable use policies for using your computers and accessing the internet. For example, if your employees check their personal cloud based email, such as Gmail, Hotmail, or Ymail on a company device, your network becomes vulnerable and you are at the mercy of that provider to ensure that the emails are being scanned for malicious code.

While there are strategies to developing these policies, there is no one perfect document that can be applied to every business. To craft the right policies for your business, consider the sensitivity of information you are protecting, the systems and platforms your company accesses and the overall size of your organization. While you may find it difficult to write a comprehensive policy to cover your entire company’s security needs, your IT professional can guide you through the process.  Don’t forget to review these policies annually as part of your disaster recovery plan. As the digital world evolves, your policies will need to reflect those advances.

Another preventative measure to protect your company’s data is to perform a security audit.  This audit will scan your network and provide you with information on where your external vulnerabilities lie. Armed with this information, your IT professional can offer solutions to proactively protect your network. Also as part of your disaster recovery plan, a security audit should be performed annually, at a minimum.

The most costly, yet effective, means to secure your company’s sensitive and proprietary information is to protect it. By making the appropriate hardware and software investments, your network will have the greatest security. Installing firewalls, anti-virus and anti-malware programs, and SPAM defense programs will decrease your digital vulnerabilities.

The most important step to ensuring your company’s security is to have your cybersecurity hardware and software actively managed. Only active management guarantees that your programs are updated in real-time as new threats are discovered and patches are available. 

One million dollars is the average cost and 32 days is the average time to resolve a cyber-attack, as reported by the Ponemon Institute in 2013. The costs to remediate a serious security breach not only include those to restore your network, operating platforms or data but also the cost of idle employees and the loss of service you could provide to your customers. It is far less expensive to proactively protect your network than having to resolve a cyber-attack.  So take action now.

Beware of Cyber Criminals Near and Far

When we read about Sony, Target and Home Depot getting hacked, we feel safe in our small business, “who’d want to hack us” little world. But the reality is that at least three of our local clients have been “hacked” recently, malware placed on their computers to allow someone from far away to access everything they could from their software.

One example of a “far away” place: Ramnicu Valcea, a tiny town outside of Bucharest, Romania. Here’s a snippet from an article in “Wired” magazine about the city, which has become known as “Hackerville.”

“According to authorities, these [cyber hacking] schemes have brought tens of millions of dollars per year into the area over the past decade, fueling the development of new apartment buildings, nightclubs, and shopping centers. Ramnicu Valcea is a town whose business is cybercrime, and business is booming. In a four block area of the town square, over 20 Western Union signs hang advertising their service as the scammers bring in millions of dollars of wired money from victims all over the world.”

While Payday Payroll has caught, on our end, every attempt at payroll fraud and prevented any losses, the identity theft costs our clients thousands not to mention any damage to the reputation of their businesses.

Within 24 hours of malware being inserted onto your computers, hackers are filing tax returns under your employee’s names and social security numbers. They are sending ACH debits to your bank and theirs. They are setting up credit cards with their identification and possibly your customers, depending on what type of information you gather.

If you think you are too small or too under the radar-low profile to not attract the interest of hackers, you are wrong. If you do not have a computer security expert in your contacts, you are flirting with danger.

If you don’t receive text or email alerts from every one of your credit card expenditures, someone will charge something on your card. They don’t need it in their hands.

You all knew ultimately as we moved from a paper to electronic world that this was inevitable. Please don’t be a victim. If you need a recommendation or advice, ask me.

We are THE local payroll company.  You are our reason for being.

Andy Kline is the founder and CEO of Payday Payroll.

Payday Takes the Plunge for a Special Cause

When a client needs the Payday team to step up, we always deliver – even if the request is a dive into frigid water!

In early February at the annual Polar Plunge, members of the Payday team joined forces with FinFit, a longtime Payday client that provides companies with financial wellness strategies. Hundreds of people descended into the chilly Atlantic Ocean in Virginia Beach to benefit Special Olympics of Virginia.

Was it cold outside and in the water? You betcha! Still, we braved the elements to help FinFit raise $3,800.


The Payday Team with FinFit at the Polar Plunge

FinFit and its CEO Dave Kilby are no strangers to giving back. FinFit maintains its own charity, “It’s a Surprise,” which supports the less fortunate get back on their feet. Kilby is also the president of Cerebral Palsy of Virginia. We’re honored to stand with Dave and the entire FinFit team as they do such important work for our community.

Check out our Polar Plunge and consider diving in next year – literally!

Payday Team Stands with Foodbank at Annual “Taste” Gala

Great food for a great cause? The Payday team wouldn’t miss it.

On March 3 at the 26th annual “Taste of Hampton Roads,” chefs from top area restaurants descended on the Virginia Beach Convention Center to cook up tasty dishes and build awareness for the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia.

Every year, the widely-attended gala allows the Foodbank to provide hundreds of thousands of meals for food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, Kids Cafes®, backpack programs, and mobile pantries throughout Southeastern Virginia and on the Eastern Shore.

For years, Payday has stood proudly with the Foodbank to build awareness and urge others to give to the less fortunate. And at the 2015 “Taste,” we were out in force once again. We enjoyed the live music and delicious eats and were honored to be part of such a meaningful event.

Congrats to the Foodbank on another terrific “Taste”!

2015 - 01 - Dana Cohen Day

Dana Cohen Day

Following the outstanding example set by our founder, Payday Payroll employees continue to be actively involved in volunteer and charitable work in the Hampton Roads community. Our CFO, Marty Mandelberg, donates time to several organizations, including being a member of the Holocaust Commission of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater (one of Payday’s many non-profit clients).
Marty is a presenter and docent for the Commission’s What We Carry program. This program tells the stories of actual survivors of the Holocaust, by providing films with segments for narration, displays of artifacts and photographs and a question and answer period. Occasionally, the audience is fortunate to have one of the survivors in attendance. The program travels to public and private schools, military installations, religious and civic organizations and other groups by request. This is just one of the Commission’s many educational and community functions.

2015 - 01 - Dana Cohen Day

Payday CFO Marty Mandelberg and Indian River High School teach Craig Blackman with Holocaust survivor Dana Cohen

On January 9, 2015, Master award-winning teacher Craig Blackman of Indian River High School in Chesapeake, organized “Dana Cohen Day “ to honor a survivor who has been speaking at the school for several years. A full day of programming included a musical piece by the orchestra; artwork created by the students representing Dana’s journey through the Holocaust; individual original student performances including piano, ballet, readings and poetry; and, treats and snacks baked by the students.
Following Marty’s presentation to a standing room only crowd, Dana answered questions before two more student performances, one vocal and one on the violin. The day concluded with the dedication of a myrtle tree sapling at the school in Dana’s honor.
For all involved, spending “Dana Cohen Day” at Indian River High School with Mr. Blackman and the students was truly a privilege.

Sonoma Wine Bar and Bistro Says Thanks to Payday, Treats Our Staff to Dinner

At Payday, relationships are everything. We love to build a special bond with clients and create far more than a business arrangement. That’s certainly the case with Bob Hughes, owner of Sonoma Wine Bar and Bistro, a fantastic restaurant in Virginia Beach.

In November, Bob hosted the entire Payday team to say thanks for our service. We have worked with Bob for several years on Sonoma and his other restaurants. The night was a blast.  Sonoma chef Mac Hess served up tasty dishes like seafood and fresh pasta. One of our favorite dishes is Chef Hess’s scallops with banana and white chocolate infused risotto. Plus for dessert we had Rocky Road pie and vanilla bean gelato drizzled in caramel. We even gave Chef Hess a standing ovation at the end of the meal – that’s how good it was!

Then Bob Hughes took the floor and said, “I can say that Payday Payroll has been one of the best partners I’ve had in all my years.  You guys are absolutely amazing and your service is greatly appreciated!”

Friends like Bob Hughes make us love what we do every day.

Thanks to Bob and ALL of you for being not just wonderful clients but our partners in the community.

Payday Team Helps Ohef Sholom Temple Care for Those in Need

The holiday season is a time for family, celebration and thanks for all we have. It’s also a time to think about those less fortunate. Like many other wonderful organizations in our community, The Caring Committee at Ohef Sholom Temple does its best to look after those who need a hand. When the Caring Committee launched its Giving with Gratitude campaign in November, Payday Payroll was first in line to donate. The plan was simple: collect food and clothing to distribute holiday baskets to our neighbors and friends in need.

The staff at Payday went through their closets for jackets, sweaters, shirts and shoes and then added a few extra items to their grocery carts. We are proud to help the Caring Committee in its campaign.  Because of the committee’s efforts, over 50 families received a holiday basket.

There is no shortage of families in need in our community, and every little bit helps.  We hope you will find a way to give back this season.  We’re sure you will find the gratitude you receive is returned ten-fold.

Happy holidays, everyone!

YWCA of South Hampton Roads Recognizes Local Leaders

On a beautiful Saturday in October, the YWCA of South Hampton Roads hosted its 1st Annual Men Who Empower Tailgate Party & Cook-off in the Ainslie Game Day Building on the campus of Old Dominion University.  This event was held in October, in conjunction with Domestic Violence Awareness Month.  There was food, music, football and most of all, a celebration for those who support the YWCA and Its cause.  The YWCA chose to honor a few men who they believe spread the message, and through action, empower women and children in our community to better themselves.  We are very proud that Payday’s president, Danny Kline, was among those honored.  He was humbled and grateful for the recognition.

About The Broward Partnership:

The Broward Partnership is committed to reducing homelessness by promoting independence and self-worth through advocacy, housing and comprehensive services. To achieve this mission, the Partnership operates the Broward County Central Homeless Assistance Center/Huizenga Family Campus, a 57,000 square foot, 230-bed emergency homeless shelter situated on 2.7 acres near downtown Fort Lauderdale.  In addition to emergency shelter, clothing and three nutritious meals a day, the Partnership service approach highlights alternatives to living on the street and provides each resident with the tools to reacquire health, housing and employment in a safe and nurturing environment.

Families with children continue to be one of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population, with an increasing number living on the streets, in cars or other unsafe accommodations. This year the Partnership expanded its campus to accommodate an additional 30 beds for homeless single mothers with children, helping to get more families off the streets and into safe, stable housing as quickly as possible. To date, Broward Partnership has served more than 20,000 homeless men, women and children in Broward County, providing them with the opportunity to help achieve dignified independence and rebuild their lives.

Payday Responds to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The Payday Family joined the Ice Bucket Challenge and collectively took a “cold” bath in support of the fight to cure ALS. The challenge has particular significance because we lost a dear member of the Payday Family to ALS in January of this year. Tommy Grant was many things. He was husband to Andrea Kline, brother-in-law to Payday CEO Andy Kline, Uncle to Danny Kline, war hero, boat captain and often lovingly referred to as the Candyman.

In 1999, Tommy thought it would be a good idea to put a few pieces of chocolate into each payroll package that left our office. 15 years later, and closing in on 13 TONS of Hershey chocolates delivered, this tradition lives on.

We hope the videos, awareness and contributions to ALS continue. Please visit the ALS website to donate. Let’s make ALS a disease of the past!

Payday Goes Golfing for HOLA and Children in Need

The Payday team hit the links to support a cause near and dear to the Kline family and Payday CEO Andy Kline.

Two Payday Clients Throw Bash for a Great Cause

When two cherished Payday Payroll clients unite for a great cause, the Payday team is first in line to lend support.

On April 10 at The Boathouse in Norfok, Omar Bouhkriss, owner of Omar’s Carriage House, hosted an evening of food, prizes and fundraising on behalf of Physicians for Peace.

That night, Omar really outdid himself. He prepared a feast for all in attendance and even brought in a belly dancer to keep us entertained. Omar has been a volunteer and fundraiser for Physicians for Peace for several years and does an admirable job promoting its efforts.

Whether Physicians for Peace volunteers administer burn care treatment in Central America or provide hands-on workshops in neonatology in India, the organization continues to spread its goodwill across the globe.

How wonderful all the hard work starts here in Hampton Roads, where Physicians for Peace maintains its headquarters.

YWCA Honors Local Women at Annual Gala

When the 11 honorees for the 26th Annual Women of Distinction Awards took the stage in March, there was nothing to do but stand in awe. What an impressive collection of successful women truly worthy of their nominations.

From high-powered executives to passionate volunteers, the stage overflowed with women of tremendous influence in Hampton Roads.

While proud of all the honorees, it’s with obvious bias that the Payday Payroll team was MOST excited for Dr. Lisbet Hanson of Virginia Beach OBGYN, a division of Mid-Atlantic Women’s Care (and longtime Payday client).

The YWCA of South Hampton Roads recognized Dr. Hanson for her outstanding and revolutionary work, particularly with robotic surgery.

For a complete list of this year’s honorees please visit the YWCA of South Hampton Roads.

Brad Schwartz – CEO, Monarch Bank & Monarch Financial Holdings

“Payday Payroll is by far the best payroll company out there. Used ADP and Paychex in the past. This company is located in Virginia but does payroll all over the country. The value and reporting functionality has allowed us to grow 200 employees without adding any payroll staff compared to our old system and the manual processes we had to perform for benefits, 401k, etc.”

Karen L. Joyner — Chief Executive Officer, Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula

“I have worked with Payday Payroll for 10 years now – first as CFO at the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia in Norfolk and now as CEO of the Foodbank of the Virginia Peninsula in Hampton. I can honestly say that there has never been a time when I called that the Payday team did not offer to assist me with any special needs that I might have. I love how a real person answers the phone during business hours and, no matter who it is, that person can usually help even if he or she isn’t specifically assigned to my account. I would highly recommend Payday Payroll to anyone who is looking for personalized, high quality, customer service-oriented payroll processing services.”

We have an internal team of six in our payroll and HR departments who are thrilled with the service and support they receive from Payday. They really enjoy speaking with an actual person (no voicemail or automated machines!) that is always knowledgeable and ready to assist. We feel Payday is the best payroll company we have ever worked with. Their professionalism, excellent service, positive attitude and attention to detail are just some of the reasons why I highly recommend Payday as your new payroll service partner.”

And THEN, imagine if all that delicious eating is for a good cause.

Welcome to Taste of Hampton Roads, the annual fundraising bash hosted by our longtime friend and community partner Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia. Over 1,000 people braved the frigid weather and mingled inside the Virginia Beach Convention Center to toast another successful year of helping to feed the area’s needy and underserved.

Payday Payroll Helps Raise Money for Latin American Orphans

By Payday Staff

The Payday team was out in force for a cause we care about deeply. In December 2013, we attended a fundraiser at Chick’s Oyster Bar for HOLA, an international humanitarian charitable organization, provides leadership and funding to create a safe and nurturing environment for orphaned and abandoned children in Latin America’s poorest communities.

From HOLA:

“HOLA just completed a monumental “Learning Center” facility in the Hogar de Fe Orphanage right outside the city of Managua, Nicaragua. This state of the art facility in Nicaragua is now linking with Cape Henry Collegiate in Virginia Beach, allowing the kids to interact as well as providing them with international exposure. With this fundraiser our goal is to raise money and awareness of this facility, our other buildings, and our organization. The Learning Center facility has extremely high internet costs due to the fact that internet is not easily accessible in that part of Nicaragua. Come out and support international learning and HOLA!! Thank you!”

Payday has been a longtime supporter of HOLA and we are proud to see all the success it’s had. To many more!

Woof Woof! Payday Joins the Party at Barktober

By Payday Staff

Sit! Stay! Enjoy!

Dogs might obey the first two commands. As for the third…that’s more for humans. In October 2013, the Payday team turned out for Barktober, a fundraising party/concert in Ocean View (East Beach) to benefit the Norfolk SPCA.

Everyone swayed to the sounds of BAM BAM Betty while they drank Norfolk Cannon and Red Nun Red Ale, the event’s featured beers by O’Connor Brewing Company, a local Norfolk Brewery.

We had a great time on a crisp fall day. Plus, all proceeds go to support the Norfolk SPCA.

The Payday Team Supports Community-Based Health Care

JT Walk Team 2

A Walk for a Great Cause

By Payday Staff

In our classic green t-shirts, a large contingent of the Payday team gathered in October 2013 at the Virginia Beach Boardwalk to walk for a cause near and dear to our hearts: the fight for a cure for ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

At the 6th annual JT Walk is named in honor of Josh Thompson, the son of prominent Va Beach developer and hotelier Bruce Thompson. More than 30,000 people have participated in the JT Walk over the past six years, and we are honored to be among them.

At this particular JT Walk, Payday Payroll walked in support of Tommy Grant. Tommy worked at Payday Payroll for almost 14 years.  At Payday, Tommy was affectionately referred to as the “Candy Man” since it was his idea to put chocolate in the payroll packages.  Tommy was not only a great employee, but he was also family as Andy Kline’s brother-in-law. He fought ALS bravely and maintained a positive attitude until he passed in January 2014.

We love the JT Walk, believe deeply in its cause and look forward to participating in 2014.


The Payday team prepares for the JT Walk at the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. The JT Walk raises money to help find a cure for ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

“Payday Payroll has streamlined our payroll responsibilities. Our employees love that they can login to PayEntry and see their employment information. We love the flexibility our employees have to punch in with either NetClock or our digital time clock. Their customer service is outstanding.

Kimberly Allsbrook — Chief Financial Officer, Beth Sholom Village

“After years of processing payroll in-house, Payday Payroll is a blessing. The system is easy to use for our payroll staff as well as department managers. We used to spend two days processing payroll; now, it’s a couple of hours! The customer service is wonderful, and they work with us as part of our team. It is like working with co-workers, not an outside vendor. We couldn’t be more pleased with Payday Payroll.”

Bob Sterling, CPA, CMPE – Executive Director, Mid Atlantic Women’s Care, PLC

“I can highly recommend Payday Payroll for its responsiveness to client’s needs, accuracy and for having a great, friendly staff. As an example, we received our W-2s only three business days after year-end. Is that incredible or what? I have had past experience working with the national payroll companies and Payday Payroll is head and shoulders above in the service and quality provided. No more 800 numbers to call and then be transferred around to someone who can solve a problem. Thank you, Payday, for making our payroll processing a painless experience.”

Bob Hughes, Owner – VA Restaurant Services, Inc.

“I own multiple businesses in the area. Usually, when acquiring a new business, I would simply keep the same payroll company I was using for my existing businesses, but I decided to give Payday Payroll a chance with one of my more recent acquisitions. What a difference! I couldn’t believe how personable and professional they were from the beginning. I have been slowly changing over all of my businesses, and in 2014, I will be using Payday Payroll exclusively. Anyone can come up with a good sales pitch and talk a good game, but Payday has followed through on every promise and has treated all of my businesses as though they were their own. Thanks for converting me!”

Gregg D’Attile, President/Owner — Art Plumbing & Air Conditioning

“Over the last 10 plus years that we have been working together, the Payday Payroll team has been a ROCKSTAR! Your customer service and attention to detail are outstanding. Payday is and will be a valued vendor partner of Art Plumbing & Air Conditioning for many years. Working with Rhea and Heather each week is a pleasure. I know that sometimes we drive them crazy with tight schedules and sometimes lots of questions and they always come through. They are a true breath of fresh air in this world of declining customer service. Payday Payroll rocks!”
