You may have read about the Heartbleed Bug and the security risk it poses for electronic Internet data. Many of our customers access their billing and water usage history at My Ventura Water, our online portal. Our IT professionals have assessed the risks and as a precaution, have applied a patch to ensure data integrity. Also, for sensitive information such as credit cards, there have always been multiple layers of encryption to provide reliable security. However, this is a good reminder that changing your Internet passwords regularly is a smart habit.
