Back To School Security Tips
It feels like summer just began, and we hate to say it, but the start of another school year is right around the corner. It’s time to purchase school books, pencils and pens, and a stash of Ramen Noodles for the semester. On the list may also be a new computer, laptop or tablet. While students are getting back into the swing of doing homework, researching school projects and getting good grades, they also need to be aware of malware, phishing schemes and safe computing practices.
Tips to stay safe this school year
Here are some cybersecurity tips for staying safe for the new school year:

Katie Kapus-Jackson Article for Greater Lakes Realtors Newsletter “Affiliate Spotlight”
Pine Country Bank's Katie Kapus-Jackson was featured in an article for the Greater Lakes Association of Realtors Newsletter!
As Vice President of Pine Country Bank, Katie Kapus-Jackson leads the mortgage practice for their four locations in Little Falls, Royalton, Rice and Bowlus, Minnesota. With over 40 years of combined mortgage and real estate experience with Loan Processor Cheryl Ploof, the team knows a thing or two about helping people buy homes.
Through the ten years she has been at Pine Country Bank, she’s made a name for herself within the communities the bank serves—“Your Hometown Bank” is the bank’s slogan and she emulates that. Customers continually refer her to friends and family and customer surveys describe her as easy to work with, very experienced and flexible in how she works with customers. “Some people like to email, some like to meet face-to-face and some like to text. We try to communicate with our customers how they prefer, not what might be easiest for us. It really makes a difference to get to know them and what is most convenient for them.”
Katie, along with Ploof, work on a variety of mortgage options including conventional loans, VA Loans, Rural Development Loans, FHA Loans and Construction Loans for primary residences, second or vacations homes and investment properties. “There are a number of options we can offer to our customers and we make sure to find the best solution for each individual.”
When asked what keeps her at Pine Country Bank she reiterates that Pine Country Bank truly is a hometown bank that cares about its customers. The bank itself has a focus of giving back to the community through their Hometown Pledge and allows employees to spend a number of work hours volunteering which Kapus-Jackson enjoys. She has also gotten to know customers over the years and has helped many get multiple home loans. “There’s a young girl, her mom bought their first home a few years back, that made me a little frog that I have up on my wall. She still comes and hugs me every time she sees me out in the community! I love that.”
When Kapus-Jackson isn’t with her Pine Country Bank family, she is spending time with her family at home – husband Scott, son Tyler (26) and Lindsay (23). She loves to boat on the water with her family, make cards, vacation and spend time with family and friends.
Katie Kapus-Jackson looks forward to helping more new and returning customers with their mortgages. “I just find it very satisfying helping people with the dream of home ownership.”
