The “Heartbleed” security bug has received great attention in the news over the past few days, and rightly so.  The security flaw means that people could have their usernames, passwords, and other sensitive data stolen when they access websites without current security patches.
Please know that in regards to our own systems, we have tested and received high marks for compliance, and therefore are not exposed to the “Heartbleed” bug.  
As part of our everyday security practices,  The Callaway Bank monitors and routinely investigates known vulnerabilities.  We maintain open communications with our technology vendors and service providers, and as a matter of regular procedure we annually test and review our systems to ensure they are up to date.
