Frequently Asked Questions About Internet Banking Security

Introduction:

Your Account:

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
 

Introduction:

Q:  What type of security do you offer?
A:  The option "device fingerprint" is the most advanced method available because it does not require the use of a persistent cookie.  The fingerprint is a proprietary hash created from various hardware and software components that can uniquely identify that device on the internet.  This allows the device to move from one IP to another and still function properly.  This option allows for the highest level of security and usability. 

Q:  What is encryption and how does it work?
A:  Public key cryptography is used for encryption and server authentication.  Encrypted messages provide protection against anyone eavesdropping; even if the information is intercepted, it is unreadable.  Authentication identifies the origin of the information and that it has not been altered.  Authentication also provides an extremely valuable tool in network security:  verification of the identity of an individual.  When an account holder wants to initiate a transaction, the browser is used to send a secure message via SSL to the web server.  This method assures account holders they are actually communicating with the web server, and not a third party who is attempting to intercept the transaction request.

Q:  What does SSL mean?
A:  SSL stands for "Secure Socket Layer."  This technology allows users to establish sessions with secure Internet sites - meaning they have minimal risk of external violation.  Once inside the Internet Banking site, our use of SSL technology keeps you and your account information secure. 

Your Account:

Q:  What types of security measures are taken to prevent sensitive information from being intercepted online?
A:  From the moment account information leaves your computer to the time it enters the Internet Banking system, we take numerous steps to ensure your information is secure in cyberspace.  We make sure only authorized people with secure browsers can access our system.

  • You must enter your password, and we must verify it before you are allowed to access your accounts.
  • Only browsers supporting the SSL security protocol can be used to log on to our system.

Once online, we make sure only you can view any information about your accounts.

  • SSL uses a digital signature to make sure that no one can send you false information; your browser will only accept information from the Internet Banking system.
  • SSL also uses the highest level of encryption supported by your browser to encrypt all information before it is sent.  This ensures that only the browser that logged on can read any information the system supplies.

Q:  What can I do to protect my account information while I'm online?
A:  We take numerous steps to keep your account information secure.  However, you must take precautions as well.

  • Choose a good password - Your online password, along with your access ID, authenticate you when you begin an Internet Banking session.  You should carefully select a password that is hard to guess.  You should not use personal information or a word that can be found in the dictionary.
  • Keep your password safe - Even the best password is worthless if it's written on a note attached to your computer or in your checkbook.  Memorize your password and never tell it to anyone.  We do not need your passcode to help you, so we will never ask you for it.
  • Change your password regularly - It's important to change your password regularly.  Every time you choose a new password, the Internet Banking system runs a quick program to test it.  If we can guess it, we will immediately ask you to choose another one.
  • Remember to sign-off properly - You may not always be at your own computer when you bank online.  Therefore, it's important to sign off when you're finishing banking.  If you forget to do so, the system automatically signs you off after 10 minutes of inactivity.  This will prevent anyone else from accessing your account.

Q:  How do I know if my session is encrypted?
A:  You can determine if you are in a secure session by looking for the following icons in the status bar of your respective browser:

Browser

Secure

Unsecure

Firefox

No icon

Microsoft Internet Explorer (any version)*

No icon

 

*Different web browsers display these icons in different areas of their windows. All browsers offer information on the level of security they provide.

Q:  What happens if an unauthorized person uses my access ID and password?
A:  You must notify us immediately if you believe your access ID or password has been compromised or if an unauthorized transaction has occurred.  If you tell us within two banking days after you learn of a loss or theft, you can lose no more than $50.00.
