Important Web Browser Update For Our Customer's Security


As computer security standards continue to be adjusted in an effort to keep online transactions safe, older and less secure technologies are being retired. Current industry changes impact how individuals access secure sites for online banking. Considered the most secure online standard, Transport Security Layer (TLS) protocol 1.2 is now required when accessing many online services. Older versions -- TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 -- are no longer supported.


What does this mean to our customers visiting our website and utilizing our online banking?


Beginning Monday, January 8, 2018 (ChST), if you attempt to access our website or online banking with unsupported software, access will be denied. Please make sure that you are using the following supported
