This past year has been one of growth and prosperity for the organization. We have continued to make great advances in our technology, our member service, and all our products.
It’s hard to believe, but the holidays are here! I want to remind you of the importance of being vigilant while you do all your holiday shopping. As you know from the recent Equifax data breach, there’s a lot of vulnerability to everyone’s personal data. The good news is that technology has helped create more secure ways to use your credit and debit cards.
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard me say that Nutmeg’s focus is on technology and making it easy for you to transact business with us regardless of which delivery channel you choose. In the past few years, we have undergone huge transformations, including upgrading all our electronic services and data systems. We also recently upgraded all our Debit and Credit Cards to the most secure platforms available.
The Equifax data breach exposed the personal information of over 143 million people between May and July 2017. In that time, information was leaked exposing people’s names, Social Security Numbers, addresses and even some driver’s license numbers. As a financial institution, we take this news very seriously. We always want to ensure our members are well informed on the steps to take to protect themselves and their families.
We strive to provide the best financial services possible to you and your family. Our job is to make sure you are rewarded for banking with us. So, when we can, we like to give you a little extra.
