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.
If you’ve logged in to Online Banking for your business account in the last few days, you may have noticed that it looks a little different. We’re making some upgrades to the Online Banking experience for business customers to make it easier to transfer funds, view transactions, and look up check images.
While these improvements specifically affect Online Banking for business customers, you can also expect to see some upgrades on the personal side of Online Banking and other system enhancements in the coming weeks and months. We want to make your banking simple, and simply better.
As of June 9, 2014, CedarStone Bank online banking customers will no longer see the image/passphrase verification feature that they have seen in the past. The traditional Access ID and Password required at login and the existing security questions used to verify your identity will remain.
Over the last few months, CedarStone Bank has been working on a new responsive designed website. A responsive website is a website that is mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop friendly and provides an optimum user experience based on the device with which the website is being used.
With the significant increase in mobile and tablet usage over the last 12 months, the need to provide easy website usage (not just access) has never been greater, and CedarStone Bank’s new responsive website site provides a great experience for all website visitors.
The website was custom designed and developed by local company Bear Web Design under the direction of John B. Bryan, CedarStone Vice President, Business Development Officer and Tina Winfree, CedarStone Senior Vice President and Operations Manager.
“The entire CedarStone Bank team is excited about the launching of our new and improved website. CedarStonebank.com is easier to navigate while offering the latest and greatest online banking applications. The responsive design makes it attractive and manageable from most any mobile, laptop or tablet device,” commented Bryan.
“The website project was a product of our bank’s ABC program. In July of 2012 we started a program designed to train and mentor CedarStone Bank employees in becoming aspiring bankers. The Aspiring Bankers of CedarStone (ABC) program was designed to educate, enlighten and develop employees to be well-rounded banking professionals as well as to empower them to make our bank better,” he added.
Incorporating the corporate brand and colors of CedarStone Bank with an exciting array of images and data display widgets, the CedarStone Bank website comes to life with a prominent slideshow and rich content, friendly navigation, and a direct and easy login to mobile banking. A new feature of the website is CedarStone Bank News and Blog, which integrates and publishes directly to social media, keeping customers connected with the latest website news and information in their favorite social media.
We Are Responsive!
Laptop and Desktop view gives visitors the full experience, with easy to use navigation and lots of key information accessible from the home page. You can find a branch location easily and our contact forms integrate with Google Maps, allowing you to even get driving directions while staying on the website!
Mobile & Tablet views will really show you the advantages of responsive design. While launching a great image-based website is becoming the vogue (with large image backgrounds and slideshows becoming more common), the fact is, if that site isn’t easily accessible in a mobile or tablet experience, then a larger and larger user segment base is being overlooked and ignored.
ALWAYS SECURE – security remains CedarStone Bank’s top priority, with the highest standards of website security and protocols being implemented.
SO, like never before, Banking Just Got Simpler with CedarStone Bank’s New Responsive Website.
We look forward to seeing you online and at a CedarStone Bank branch soon!
