The Heartbleed security flaw : Securing Your Information

In Coldstream Happenings

Protecting our clients’ privacy and the confidentiality of their personal information has always been important to us. As our client, you may have concerns regarding reports involving the “Heartbleed” security flaw, which is reported to have potentially affected certain online sites that employ OpenSSL software. We would like to take this opportunity to reassure you that we have confirmation that your information is not impacted with respect to the security of your accounts at our primary custodians and third party vendors. We utilize Charles Schwab, Fidelity and TD Ameritrade as our primary custodians, AdvisorProducts Inc. (API) for the secure client login-only portion of our Coldstream website and Satuit as our Client Relationship Management Software (Satuit).

The “Heartbleed Bug” is being called one of the biggest security threats the internet has ever seen.
