Is Online Banking safe?
We, and our service providers, have established security procedures and have firewalls in place in an attempt to prevent unauthorized access to accounts and transactions. The system uses the most up-to-date encryption methods and software.
What is encryption, and how does it make everything more secure?
Encryption is when something is rewritten in code, which can then be decoded later with the right key. The effectiveness of encryption is in the number of bits. The higher the number of bits, the better the encryption is. In our pursuit to maintain security on our Online Banking product at the strongest available level, the encryption standard for Online Banking is 128-bit. This means all users will be required to use a browser with the 128-bit standard.
How do I know if I’m viewing a secure Web page?
If you are currently using Microsoft Internet Explorer, look for the padlock in the lower right corner. If the lock is in the “open” position, the page is not secure. If it is in the “locked” position, the page is secure. If you are currently using Netscape Navigator, look in the location window to see whether the page address is listed as “http” (not secure) or “https” (secure). Depending on the version of Navigator you are using, there also may be an unlocked padlock or broken key in the bottom left corner of the window to indicate a non-secure page, or a locked padlock or intact key to indicate a secure page.
