Important Alerts

Technology Update:

June 2022: As of June 15, 2022 Microsoft has dropped support for Internet Explorer and it will no longer issue security patches through Windows Updates.  Consequently, continuing to use Internet Explorer will make browsing activity vulnerable to active security threats that could result in malicious activity and a compromised system. To maintain the highest level of protection for you, we recommend using a supported browser such as Microsoft Edge or Google Chrome moving forward.

June 2021: In order to maintain the highest standards for data security, consumers and businesses should always maintain their computers, servers, laptops, mobile devices, etc., using only current, supported operating systems. Critical security updates should be applied on a regular basis to provide greater cyber protection. Up-to-date anti-virus software, firewall, SPAM filtering and ongoing cybersecurity awareness training are just some of the many things you can do to help protect your information and device(s).
