Central Bank takes protecting your assets very seriously. As soon as we heard about the vulnerability, we immediately began testing and evaluating our systems and the third party vendors we use. We have tested our websites and our servers and at no time were we exposed to the latest “Heartbleed” vulnerability. Our core banking and online banking vendors have responded to us that they have either patched their systems or have never been vulnerable to the bug at any time. We continue to monitor and work with all of our vendors to ensure we have a secure network. We feel confident our systems are not now nor have they ever been exposed to this vulnerability.
