IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THE "HEARTBLEED BUG": As you may have seen in the news recently, an independent security firm has identified a programming flaw (“Bug”) in the OpenSSL encryption technology used by many Web servers to encrypt the personal information of users of those websites. The “Bug” could put your personal information at risk.
Your personal information with Central Bank is safe and secure. Central Bank does NOT use OpenSSL encryption technology for our Online Banking services and there is no risk to your personal information due to the “Heartbleed Bug”. Your personal information is encrypted using other technologies on a secure web server dedicated to Online Banking transactions, separate from Centralbnk.com. In addition, your accounts are protected using multiple layers of security, known as multi-factor authentication, to verify your identity and prevent unauthorized access to your accounts.
Centralbnk.com does utilize OpenSSL encryption to provide additional privacy when you browse our website. We have successfully patched our Centralbnk.com web servers with a security update that corrects the “Heartbleed Bug” vunerabilities.
Your knowledge and vigilance is the best security for your accounts. To provide added protection of your personal information, it is always a good idea to change your passwords periodically.
