Mt. Juliet Branch Manager Beth Schultze and Girl Scout Troup 1200

Girl Scout Troop 1200 recently visited CedarStone's Mt. Juliet branch to learn about money and banking. The girls learned how to write up a deposit slip, make a deposit, and get a receipt. They got to see behind teller row, where we showed them how money is stored securely, organized, and counted. Branch manager Beth Schultze talked to the girls about the importance of having a bank account. She also showed the girls how machines can detect counterfeit money mixed in with real bills.

Justin Duncan, a senior at McGavock High School, is currently working on his "capstone" experience with the Donelson Branch of CedarStone Bank. Recently, he worked with CedarStone's Willie McDonald at a financial security facility, learning about procedures and laws relating to bank security. That session was followed up by working with the Donelson Branch staff to put his new knowledge to use.
 
In all, Justin will put in 40 hours of work with CedarStone on his capstone experience and write a paper, as part of his graduation requirements. To read more about Justin and the capstone program at Metro Nashville Public Schools, click here.

cedarstone-bank-online-shopping-security

Lots of people will be doing their holiday shopping online, which creates opportunities for phishing, malware, and scams. But there are things you can do to make your online shopping more secure.

Be careful about emails. Some malicious activity comes in the form of holiday greetings. Only open emails from people and companies you know. Even then, it is best not to click on web links inside emails; go out to your browser and access the website there. If an email doesn’t look completely legitimate, even a personal one, check it out with the sender first.

Know your charities. Bad guys will take advantage of your generosity with appeals that pull on the heartstrings. If you see a charity you want to donate to, they will take it if you visit their website directly or send them a check.

Secure your system. Think of your computer, tablet or phone as a house: don’t leave the door unlocked. Here are some security issues you will want to consider:

•  Is your wi-fi connection password-protected?
•  Do you have a good antivirus program? How about malware detector? Ad and pop-up blockers?
•  Is your operating system and all your software updated/patched? This includes your browser, browser plug-ins, and any external programs you may use.
•  Did you know that attachments can carry viruses?

Only use secure sites. Even if your system is relatively secure—no system is perfect—websites you visit may not be. Sites whose web addresses begin with https (rather than http) are more secure. Take any warnings about security certificates seriously.

Monitor your accounts. Look at your credit card and checking accounts online very often. If you see suspicious activity, report it immediately.

Security risks may also come to you in the form of fake ads, messages inside of social media programs, and phone calls.

Hackers and online thieves are very good at what they do. A little extra care could save you time, money, and hassle.

More information is at the website for the United States Computer Emergency Readiness Team. For users of mobile devices, additional precautions are recommended.

 mt-juliet-kiwanis-cedarstone-bank-mt-juliet-tnKiwanis Club member Beth Schulze, Manager of the Mt. Juliet Office of CedarStone Bank, joins in the effort.

On July 29, the Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet joined forces with the Mt. Juliet Police Explorers to clean up the landscaping around the entry to the Mt. Juliet Middle School baseball field. The Kiwanis Club provided the landscaping material and the Police Explorers put in a lot of hard work planting flowers.

The Mt. Juliet Police Explorers are a group of 12 teenagers who are receiving an education about police work with real-life scenarios. They participate in city special events, ride-a-longs and community service work alongside actual Mt. Juliet Police Department officers. One goal of the Mt. Juliet Explorer Program is to give these teenagers an opportunity to be leaders in the community. The Kiwanis Club of Mt. Juliet is focused on improving thelives of children in the communities they serve, and they enjoyed this opportunity to assist the Explorers in their endeavors.

After working to beautify the community, the Kiwanis Club and the Police Explorers enjoyed lunch catered by Missy Johnson at Mirko Pasta at the new Mt. Juliet Police Headquarters. After lunch, Chief James Hambrick, also a Kiwanian, provided a tour of the new facility for all the participants.
