Online Security

Q: Will other people be able to see my account information through online banking?

A: Your account information is just as secure on our online banking system as it is at the bank itself. We have taken every step possible to be sure that our system meets the latest security standards, including using the latest security encryption methods and software.


Q: How secure are the bank's online applications?

A: The information you submit in an online application with our bank is as secure as your online banking transactions. Your entire session, from beginning to end, is encrypted. Our system supports 128-bit encryption, so you can also use the latest browser that supports this security level. In fact, the highest encryption Netscape and Microsoft browsers support is 128-bit, so you will be using the highest bit encryption currently available if you use a 128-bit encryption capable browser.
