Teaming with banks, credit card firms

We have a common enemy, and it will take teamwork to defeat it.

That could have been a theme at last Thursday’s cyber security luncheon at the Ennis Chamber of Commerce. A

Secret Service agent from the Dallas Field Office shared data and critical information about hackers, cyber

terrorists, email weaknesses, point of sale terminal problems, and credit cards with those attending. It was eye

opening, if not downright scary.

The teamwork on this started with the banks in our community. Citizens National Bank of Texas, Commercial

State Bank, Ennis State Bank, First State Bank, and Prosperity Bank all co-sponsored the event at the chamber.

Our banks are on the front lines of identity theft, credit card hacking, and cyber fraud on a second-by-second

basis. Their security systems are under constant attack from would-be thieves, whether they are holed up in

some basement in our neighborhood or in a state-sponsored work room half way across the globe. Promoting

this type of event, to get valuable information in the hands and minds of local business people and residents, is

community-based involvement that is laudable and appreciated.
