Once again the news is buzzing about a data breach, this time carried out by a group of Russian hackers. It has been reported that this data breach has claimed to have stolen usernames and passwords from a variety of websites across industries.
We want to assure you we are monitoring this situation, in partnership with our technology vendors, and will continue to do so. Protecting your financial security is a top priority and we have a variety of measures in place to do so, including Risk-Based Authentication (RSA). RSA is an authentication technology that works behind the scenes to authenticate all users and logins based on individual user and devices profiles. Simpy put, if the system identifies a login to your accounts from a different device or location the user will be prompted with challenge questions to continue – protecting your account from unauthorized users.
In response to this recent threat we’d like to remind you that as a best practice you should change your online passwords on a regular basis. You also shouldn’t use the same password for all of the sites you access. One of the quickest ways to protect yourself against this possible threat is to update your passwords.
We work hard to protect your financial security and encourage you to monitor your accounts and notify us immediately at (651) 451-5160 or (800) 813-9185 if you identify unauthorized transactions or activity.
