03/27/2018: Verifying or Enabling Transport Layer Security 1.2
What is Transport Layer Security (TLS)?
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint is securely encrypted in order to provide privacy and data integrity. Fiserv web applications and application programming interface (API) connections use TLS as a key component of their security. TLS 1.2 is the most current version and is considered to be the most secure.
What Does That Mean For You?
Here at The Peoples State Bank, we are committed to keeping your information secure. As a financial institution, we are also required to update our security to match industry standards. This means we will be moving from Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 to TLS 1.2 on April 9, 2018. The change will affect our Online Banking feature.
To continue accessing our Online Banking, you’ll need to make sure you verify or enable TLS 1.2 on your web browser or operating system. The step-by-step instructions to do so are outlined here. The changes that you’ll make in your browser or operating system won’t harm your computer in any way, but if you choose not to enable TLS 1.2, then you will be unable to access our Online Banking feature beginning April 9, 2018.
To learn more about verifying or enabling Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 on your PC, please see our full notice here.
