The MutualBank Charitable Foundation is proud to help fund the building of the new Combined Community Services building in Kosciusko County.  

On September 26, 2011, the MutualBank Charitable Foundation announced the awarding of a $10,000 grant to help fund the building of the new Combined Community Services (CCS) facility. The grant will be put toward the construction of the new facility in Warsaw which is scheduled to be completed in June 2012.

Currently CCS has reached over 80% of their total building fund project goal of $1.7 million. This project is under a considerable time pressure as the lease is up on the current building in June 2012 and those who have visited the current facility understand the need for space and storage was needed long ago.

CCS’ motto is “Helping Neighbors, Help Neighbors”. The collaboration of churches, businesses, foundations and individuals enables CCS to help others to achieve a higher quality of life. Or in MutualBank language, to help others live a better life.  MutualBank is proud to partner and support CCS as they look for new ways to remove barriers for low-income residents of Kosciusko County.

The MutualBank Charitable Foundation was created to establish a permanent source of funding for charitable causes in the MutualBank market areas, ensuring the continuation of the MutualBank heritage of supporting the community.

MutualBank, an Indiana-based financial institution, has thirty-two full-service financial centers in Delaware, Elkhart, Grant, Kosciusko, Randolph, St. Joseph and Wabash Counties in Indiana.  MutualBank also has two Wealth Management and Trust offices located in Carmel and Crawfordsville, Indiana and a loan origination office in New Buffalo, Michigan.  MutualBank is a leading residential lender in each of the market areas it serves, and provides a full range of financial services including wealth management and trust services and Internet banking services.  The Company’s stock is traded on the NASDAQ National Market under the symbol “MFSF” and can be found on the internet at www.bankwithmutual.com.

Personal Banking Security Measures for the 21st Century

clientuploads/21st-Century-Securitysquare180.pngMany of us are constantly connected to the online world these days. This means that the potential is there for our computers and personal information to be compromised which greatly increases the risk of ID theft and financial fraud to occur. However, by taking some basic precautions you can significantly reduce the risk of your computing environment being compromised. Following these simple guidelines should help your computing environment become more secure:

Keep your computer and software up-to-date

Keep your computers and network equipment secured with the latest software updates and enable automatic updates whenever possible.  This includes updates to third party applications such as Java and Adobe Products.  

Use hard drive encryption

In the event your machine is lost or stolen, drive encryption can prevent others from accessing the data on your hard drive.  The purpose is to encrypt or scramble your data on your machine so that it can only be read with your encryption key.Many operating systems offer drive encryption.  Microsoft offers Bitlocker and Apple has FileVault. There are also other third party encryption offerings.   

Enable your firewall

Think of the firewall to your computer as the fence around your property.  If there were multiple holes cut in the fence, it wouldn’t be very useful at keeping people out.  Firewalls are typically enabled by default on Windows machines, but double check to make sure it’s on.  Here are instructions to do so if you are using Windows 7. Only allow necessary applications inbound access through your firewall. The same principles apply to your network firewall. 

Configure your screensaver

Set an auto-locking screensaver so your account gets locked out after a few minutes.  This is useful if you forget to lock your machine when are away from it. On Windows machines this can usually be done by pressing the “Windows Key” and the “L” button simultaneously.

Make your passwords stronger

The longer and more complex the password, the better.  At least 16 characters with a combination of upper and lowecase letters, numbers, and special characters is a best practice.

Configure your router

Use the strongest wireless security available (currently WPA2-CCMP) with a long and complex password for your wireless network. Disable WPS on your wireless router for greater security.   

 


Think that some secure banking information
of yours has been compromised?
