Your online security is very important
to us. We take several precautions to ensure your information is secure.
To access our
secure area, you must enter your Logon ID and Security Code. As a security
precaution, we store your Security Code in our database in an encrypted
format that even we cannot decode.
In addition, Enhanced Authentication
provides extra protection for your online data and helps guard against
phishing scams and identity theft by recognizing your computer and usage
patterns. If a questionable logon attempt is detected, the system will require
additional identity verification before allowing access.
The system also displays a secret Security
Phrase that you choose. This phrase is displayed each time you log on to
reassure you that you are logging on to your actual Online banking site. If
you do not see your Security Phrase, you should not enter your Security Code.
