It’s a sad fact of modern life — if you’ve got something, somebody who wants it might go to extraordinary lengths to take it from you. So, we employ a number of precautions to safeguard your finances and financial information. Our online banking, for instance, is fully encrypted. That means that if fraudsters access your information they won’t be able to read it, rendering it useless to them. Keeping watch over your assets is a full-time job. Here is some information on ways that you can help us to protect you from various types of fraud:
