Strong IT for a Family Oriented Financial Institution: Liberty Savings Association

By August 20, 2018 Testimonials
Liberty Savings Association

The Liberty Savings Association is a family-oriented financial institution that offers personal and commercial banking services in the Fort Scott, KS and Bourbon County area. Liberty Savings was established in 1919. OXEN Technology has been working to support Liberty Savings’ technical needs since 2011 through a wide range of infrastructure solutions, managed services, and IT planning and consulting.

Liberty Savings’ predominant need has been technical remediation in response to their annual IT audits. OXEN performs a cost/benefit analysis of their annual IT audit results, recommends priorities, and rectifies vulnerability issues. Liberty Savings is very proactive in routinely assessing and reducing IT security risk through ongoing remediation.  Their IT auditors have remarked that their environment is surprisingly more secure compared to typical bank IT technical assessments. We’re proud to be a part of that!

We have also worked on major IT projects with Liberty Savings to help them maintain their hardware and software. We’ve helped them simplify their IT environment through consolidating and virtualizing their servers, which helped reduce their infrastructure to an optimal size and lowered their total cost of ownership. We have also upgraded their server hardware and network operating systems to keep them current and compliant. Another project involved designing a rack enclosure solution to physically secure their infrastructure and providing battery backup systems complete with monitoring and alerting systems.

We also provide a variety of managed services to Liberty Savings, including backup disaster recovery services, remote monitoring and management of their servers and desktops, and firewall management. We’re glad to be a strong IT partner for Liberty Savings.

Because phishing email is involved in 91% of breaches, I can't stress enough how important it is to manage your whitelist. As security has evolved, I continually find things that I did months or years ago that I would do differently today. So, I am learning to go back and review the things that are on autopilot to make sure they meet…

Security Awareness Training: Time to Jump on the Bandwagon

| Security | No Comments
Human error. We talk about it all the time, but what exactly do we mean? Human error occurs when an individual does something with an unintended outcome. In cybersecurity, it’s easy to point the finger at employees as being an organization’s weakest link. An IBM study found that human error accounts for 95% of security incidents, yet security awareness training for employees often ends up on the back burner. But without appropriate security awareness training provided by the employer, how can employees truly know what to watch out for? Is security awareness training a priority? In a recent survey by…
