Dear Valued Customers,
Due to the current Coronavirus crisis, The Peoples Savings Bank has been doing its part to prepare for whatever possible scenario that could take place in our local community. The staff has been supplied with whatever needs available to mitigate the spread of this, or any other virus, which includes handwashing, sanitizers, gloves and masks. We are also using disinfectants often during the day to sanitize work stations. We will continue to monitor the Local and State officials daily for further updates as they occur, and adjust our services accordingly. It is our priority to keep our customers and staff safe during this unique situation. I encourage you to take advantage of our drive thru, online, or mobility services to mitigate having to come into our locations to lessen the chances of catching the virus.
If you should have any questions or concerns, please contact any of our staff members, or myself, at 937-653-1600. Thank you for your continued loyalty, and we appreciate all of you for allowing us to serve you.
Brian K. Nicol
The COVID-19 virus is now a global event.
Malicious cyber actors always look for opportunities to capitalize on global events, especially high-profile ones like COVID-19. Hackers use the fear and uncertainty surrounding such events to spread misinformation as well as trick employees into sharing sensitive data and information. In addition, hackers often increase their attempts to break into networks and IT systems while the organization is focusing on and prioritizing other activities. Thus, it’s important during this situation for us to remain extra vigilant in our personal and professional digital lives.
How to keep yourself and our organization safe and secure: * Do not open or respond to any emails or email senders you do not recognize or that look odd or suspicious; when in doubt, contact the sender directly using another form of communication * Do not open or click on any email attachments from senders you do not trust or recognize, especially if the email is related to COVID-19 * Be vary of “news” websites or emails talking about cures, vaccines, or other items specifically relating to COVID-19 * Be cautious of text messages (SMS), WhatsApp, and/or Facebook messages that request sensitive or personal information or involve medical issues or COVID-19 specifically * Continue to observe all company policies and procedures, particularly any involving financials or money transfer outside of the company; hackers typically use the “urgency” of a situation or “crisis” to encourage employees to break protocols, often to the detriment of the business * Be suspicious of calls you receive from your doctor, medial insurance companies, or medical professionals; when in doubt, verify the phone number and/or hang up and call your doctor, insurance provider, or medical facility directly * Visit health or medical websites directly. Hackers often create fake weblinks that take users to realistic-looking fake web pages.
