Setters Bank is the first bank in the area to launch this new secure domain, Settlers.BANK 

We are proud to announce that effective May 7, 2019, Settlers Bank has transitioned its website operations to the new domain, Settlers.bank with a fresh new look to the site as well. Only verified members of the
banking community can have a .BANK website. All .BANK domains also must meet the robust security requirements of the domain.
Settlers Bank is the first bank in our area to launch this new, more secure domain. We know we must do everything we can to protect our customers and continue to be a business that supports the financial needs of the thriving local community. We think this conversion brings many benefits
that help us to continue accomplishing those goals.

So you got a new mobile device....what do you do with the old one? 
By Jeff Welch, SVP IT Manager

Innovation in mobile devices (smartphones, smartwatches, and tablets) has brought exciting new capabilities. From health monitoring to streaming video to gaming, the urge to upgrade is higher than ever before. In fact, many users upgrade their devices every year. Those upgrades mean you
need to do something with your old device.
Use caution!
Your mobile device likely stores a great deal of personal data. Your place of work, home address, stored passwords, account access information, browsing history, phone call history, and health-related information are a few examples. This data could allow a “bad actor” to gain access
to sites or apps, and perhaps even your financial data. This sensitive data could also be used to steal your identity or be instrumental in staging a ransomware attack.
What should you do?
Regardless of how you dispose of your device you need to be sure all of your data has been wiped from the device. Simply deleting the data isn’t enough as this function generally just removes the data from easy view. A good way to make sure everything is removed is to reset the device. Each manufacturer has a slightly different process to follow, but resetting the device will put the device back to factory condition.
The device will likely have a card that enables cell and data connections. This SIM Card (Subscriber Identity Module) also contains data about you and is not erased when your device is wiped or reset. If the SIM card cannot be used on your new device it should be removed and
destroyed.
Need help?
If you are not sure about any of these processes, ask your provider for assistance. These folks are generally well schooled on privacy, security and the device. Taking time to properly dispose of your old mobile device is an important security step.

     
Just a friendly reminder our offices will be closed on Monday, May 27, 2019, in observation of Memorial Day.

Partners In Education 
Settlers Bank is proud to partner with our local schools. The opportunity to interact with students is always enriching. Recently we were able to help out with an after-school academic event by providing our popcorn machine and supplies for the event. Following the event, we were pleasantly surprised to get these wonderful “thank you” pictures from the students. As this school year comes to a close we wish to thank our partner schools, Harmar Elementary, and Putnam Elementary. It has been our pleasure to work with the teachers, administrators, and students and we can’t wait to see what fun activities are in store for next year.
