Angie Trader Graduates Leadership Academy

Published Tuesday, June 7, 2011 7:00 am by Jaime Faulkner

MutualBank congratulates Angie Trader on her recent graduation and completion of the Grant County Leadership Academy through LEAD Inc.

Trader was one out of ten people picked to participate in the leadership class.  The class lasted for eight months and required each individual to be an intern and join a board of an organization in the community for the duration of the class.  Trader became an intern on the board for Affordable Housing in Grant County.  She said, "It was a very interesting board as I came to learn about what they do for the people in Grant County.  They do housing of people who cannot afford housing on their own.  Plus, they try to beautify neighborhoods that are run down."

The class participants traveled to different places throughout Grant County from Taylor University, Indiana Wesleyan University, General motors, funeral homes, Mississinewa 1812 Battlefield, Marion Police Department and as far as the State House.  The tour of Grant County was interesting to Trader because she learned about places and people, some she knew and some of which she had never heard.  Trader said it was interesting to see how all of the different companies each have a part in the leadership of Grant County and Marion.  

Trader's favorite experience was the visit to the Marion Police Department.  They were able to witness a police dog in training for sniffing and identifying drugs. They also saw the SWAT team in a practice take down and each participant had an opportunity to shoot a machine gun in the shooting range.

MutualBank thanks Trader for taking this opportunity to grow and congratulates her on this impactful accomplishment. Way to go!

Personal Social Media Account Security

For many of us, social media has become a part of our everyday lives and helps us conveniently keep tabs on the people and topics we care most about.

Recently however, there has been an increase of social media account take overs by cybercriminals. As stated in the media, one contributing factor in some of the social media account takeovers has been the use of weak passwords.


Tips for creating a stronger password:


  • Passwords should typically:
    • be at least 8 characters in length
    • contain at least 1 number
    • contain at least 1 special character (!@#$$%)
    • contain both upper and lower case characters.
  • Do not use your name, date of birth, maiden name, mother’s maiden name, address, or other easily guessable words for passwords. 
  • Another way to create a strong password is to use a series of words that do not relate to each other. For example, JumpingFastRelaxStop!#.

 


Social media additional security options:


Another way to help avoid social media account takeover is to use the additional security options available. Two-factor authentication adds an extra layer of security that drastically decreases your chances of account takeover. Two-factor authentication is essentially the using of two separate components to verify your identity, the combination of something you HAVE with something you KNOW. A good example of two-factor authentication you most likely are already used to is withdrawing cash from an ATM, for example. Having both your debit card AND knowing a pin number is required to complete the withdrawal and protect your identity.

A popular and convenient two-factor authentication method is using a combination of both an online password and a text message verification sent to your phone. Enabling this type of authentication typically follows this process:

  1. Enter your password into Facebook or another website
  2. Immediately receive a text on your phone with a temporary pass key
  3. Enter the passkey received back on the site/app and you’re logged in

This may seem like overkill, but enabling this two-factor authentication will drastically decrease the chances of your social accounts being hacked. And actually, the process of setting up and using this authentication is pretty simple and convenient.

 


How to enable two-factor authentication:


Many popular social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIN, and others already support two-factor authentication. To learn more about how to do so on the most popular sites on the web, be sure to check out this article:
