At Security Bank, we understand how important your financial information is and we have taken steps to make sure our customers have the highest level of security features available within our online banking product. Here is information concerning the security in place with this system:
Software and Hardware:
Our proven, state-of-the-art software and hardware technologies ensure that your data is safe. We use SSL encryption, firewalls, filtering routers, and a variety of authentication techniques. These methods guard your data as it passes from your computer to our systems and back again.
Security with the World Wide Web begins with your browser. To protect transactions, we accept log-ins originating from a browser that supports both regular encryption (40-bit) and the highest level of encryption (256-bit). Encryption prevents transactions from being read by unauthorized parties over the Internet. Secure browsers employ secure sockets layer (SSL) technology to communicate with servers. This technology encrypts (or scrambles) your account information so it's virtually impossible for anyone to read it. Further, for security reasons, your browser can't remember your password, so you have to enter it each time you begin an Online Banking session by logging in.
If your online banking session is inactive for 8 minutes (that is, you have not submitted any transactions), your session automatically terminates, and you will need to log on again. Online Banking is designed this way to provide you with maximum security in case you forget to log out.
So as you can see, you can rest assured that your financial information is secure!
