"Empowering You to Energize Your Life"

* * * Internet Security Awareness* * *

You may have heard about the "Heartbleed Bug", a vulnerability to any open or secure socket layer (SSL). This weakness allows stealing the information protected, under normal conditions, by the SSL/TLS encryption used to secure the Internet. Open SSL is used to secure about two-thirds of all Internet traffic.

NISC, our information technology provider, has taken steps to eliminate the possibility of an attack by Heartbleed. Nevertheless, it is recommended that you change the password you use to access your electric account. Although there is no need for alarm, it is a good security practice to change your password on a regular basis.
