IMPORTANT INFORMATION
                              CORPORATE ACCOUNT TAKEOVER                   

Hackers, backed by professional criminal organizations, are targeting small and medium businesses to obtain access to the web banking credentials or remote control of their computers.  These hackers will then drain the deposit and credit lines of the compromised bank accounts, funneling the funds through mules that quickly redirect the monies overseas into hackers' accounts.
As a business owner, you need an understanding of how to take proactive steps and avoid, or at least minimize, most threats.
