National Credit Union Youth Week Monday April 21-Friday April 25

April 16, 2014

We will be celebrating National Credit Union Youth Week
starting Monday April 21 through Friday April 25, 2014 at our 725 5Th

Come Catch the Save Wave, National Credit Union Youth Week is a celebration held to encourage kids to save and manage their money.

We will be having the following festivities:

Monday 04/21 we invite you to bring your child in to “count their change” using our coin machine! While you are here, if your child doesn’t already have a savings account, we will have a special coupon available for you to open one for them. Also there will be coloring sheets available for a coloring contest that will be judged Thursday 04/24.

Tuesday 04/22 we invite you to bring your children in and guess how many jelly beans are in the jar. The child with the closest guess will win a Last Exit Kick Scooter! Also remember to pick up a coloring sheet for our coloring contest that will be judged on Thursday 04/24.

Wednesday 04/23 we will be accepting donations of gently used children’s books, video DVDs, and children’s CDs (books on CD or children’s music). These donations will go to The Black Hills Children’s Home Society. So let’s clean out our closets! Also coloring sheets will still be available for the coloring contest that will be judged on Thursday 04/24.

Thursday 04/24 we will be judging the coloring contest starting at 12:00. Please have all sheets returned to our office by today. Prizes are available for the ages 0-5 and ages 6 and up.

Friday 04/25 we will end Youth Week with a special treat. Stop in and have a snack with us.

Heartbleed Bug - What You Need To Know

April 11, 2014

You may have heard about the Heartbleed Bug, a serious vulnerability in the popular OpenSSL cryptographic software library. The Heartbleed Bug essentially allows anyone on the internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software. Attackers can "eavesdrop" on your communications, steal data directly from the services and users and to impersonate services and users - which puts you at risk. Here is what you need to know:

The Good News: Rest assured that Highmark Federal Credit Union's online services are not vulnerable to the Heartbleed Bug and our online services remain safe and secure. Its Me 24/7 Online Banking security features are heavily encrypted with data being stored behind powerful firewalls.

The Bad News: Since OpenSSL is the most popular open source cryptographic library and TLS implementation used to encrypt traffic on the internet, you are likely to be affected either directly or indirectly.

We recommend that you learn more about this internet Bug and review the sites that were affected to determine what precautions you should take. To learn more about this internet bug and the websites that have been affected by it, click on the following link: http://www.cnet.com/news/how-to-protect-yourself-from-the-heartbleed-bug/

Highmark Federal Credit Union recommends that you keep a close eye on all of your electronic accounts, keep current with your virus/software protection, utilize strong passwords that include capital/lowercase letters, numbers and special characters, and remember that reputable companies you already have a relationship with will NEVER ask you for your personal information via an email.
