I'm still hesitant about banking online. Can other people see my account
account information is just as secure as it is at your physical
brick and mortar bank. We've taken every step possible to be sure
our system meets the latest security standards, including using the
latest security encryption methods and software.
Q I keep hearing a lot about
encryption? What exactly is it, and why does it make everything more
Encryption is basically a way to rewrite something in a code which
can then be decoded later with the right key. The encryption we use
employs a mathematical process for the key which is made up of a
certain number of bits (hence, 128-bit encryption). The higher the
number of bits, the better the encryption. While using our Online
Banking system, all communication from you to the system and from
the system to you is encrypted using a maximum of 128 bits. In other
words, when you send information to the system, your browser
encrypts it using a 128-bit key, then sends it to the system. The
system then decodes the information you sent it using the key (which
is predetermined when your Online Banking session is started) and
Q What about information
that is stored? Is it encrypted as well?
A Information stored on our system
is also encrypted using at least 128 bits.
