IMPORTANT Information About Protecting Your Information Online
As electronic forms of banking become more prevalent, the percentage of fraudulent activities related to electronic banking also increases. Below is a listing of how the Bank works to protect your information and how you can protect your information.
The Bank mitigates risk of fraudulent activities through the use of the following:
· Allowing requests for internet banking capabilities in person only
· Secure Sign On – This includes the use of a username in conjunction with a password, phrase, and picture of your choosing
· Security Questions
· Required password changes at 90 day intervals
· Account lock-out after 3 incorrect attempts
· Bill-pay dollar limits
You can mitigate risk of fraudulent activities in the following ways:
· Ensuring a firewall is established for your home computer
· Ensuring that your computer has antivirus, anti-malware, anti-spyware software installed
· Ensuring that all software is kept up to date
· Do Not share your User ID or Password with anyone
· Avoid utilizing public computers to access sensitive information whenever possible
· Reviewing your statements on a regular basis and notifying the bank of any suspicious activities
· Limiting the information you share on Social Networking websites
· Use a strong password that is hard to guess, (i.e. do not use the names of family members or birthdates) - A strong password is alphanumeric, contains an uppercase and lowercase letter, and may contain a special character if the system will allow. Short phrases with numbers/special characters substituted for certain letters work great (i.e. use a “5” instead of an “s” or use “@” instead of an “a”)
· CBE Business Express customers are strongly encouraged to utilize the dual control function that the system allows for
· CBE Business Express customers are strongly encouraged to assess the risk that your company has as it relates to employee usage of online banking services and implement mitigating controls.
