Online Security Update
You may have read about the “Heartbleed” security issue that has impacted many websites across the country that use what is called OpenSSL technology. At Bell State Bank & Trust, we have reviewed all of our customer sites, and we do not believe any of those sites, including our personal and online banking, had this vulnerability or were affected by the Heartbleed issue. We are working with all of the third-party vendors that provide us online services. We have not identified any customer site using the OpenSSL technology, but we are continuing to review and make sure these vendors have patched any vulnerabilities.
Security is extremely important at Bell State Bank & Trust. We continually monitor our technology for vulnerabilities and make changes as needed to ensure the online safety of our customers.
