Your cyber privacy and protection are important to Citizens National Bank. We employ complex security measures to protect all of our customers from unwanted cyber attacks. Part of our commitment to protect our customers includes education for cyber security.
With the increase in banking technology, criminals are now engaging in Corporate Account Takeover (CATO).
