Business Banking

Security is the most important issue BrandBank faces in making Online Banking available for our customers. Using industry standard techniques ensures that your personal and financial information remains confidential. BrandBank uses security technologies such as your personal login ID and password, encryption and firewalls. The combination of your login ID and password enables you to be uniquely identified to BrandBank Online Banking. It is your responsibility to keep your password secure. You will also need to use a secure browser. Certain browsers have the ability to communicate securely by encrypting the information as it passes across the Internet. This method of communication is called Secure Socket Layer (SSL). BrandBank requires the use of a secure browser before you connect to Online Banking. Additionally, your information passes through a "firewall" which is a computer specifically designed to keep out unauthorized users.

How to ensure that your session is secure!

As you browse though the resources available on the Internet, you will notice that your browser's status bar changes with the Web page you are viewing. For example, check your Netscape browser for the security icon in the lower left corner of the browser. Microsoft displays the icon in the lower right corner of the browser window. You should see a pad lock graphic either locked or unlocked.

Protect Yourself

Online Security

The Internet is a convenient way to access your accounts and communicate with BrandBank. By following these tips, you can enjoy a safe and secure online experience.

  • Keep passwords to yourself. Never share your passwords or PINs with anyone.
  • Memorize your passwords. Never write your passwords down.
  • Create difficult passwords. Be creative with your passwords. Stay away from obvious passwords like your zip code, year of birth, or sensitive information such as your mother's maiden name or your Social Security Number.
  • Change your password often. Change your passwords every 30 to 60 days.
  • Do not share your passwords. If you share your passwords, you've given that person or entity permission to access your personal and account information.

Online Banking

  • Stay at your computer once you sign on. Never leave your computer unattended while using any online banking or investing service.
  • Sign off when you're done. It's important to sign off completely when you are finished banking online. This is even more critical if you're using a computer that other people can access.
  • Use only secure sites. If you are providing financial information, be sure the site uses secure communications. One of the ways to determine if a site is secure is to look for the padlock icon usually located at the bottom of the Web page. If you double click on the icon, a pop-up window will appear with information about the Web site. The information in this window should match the Web site you're visiting.
  • Trust is important. Do business only with financial institutions that you know and trust.
  • Be on the lookout for suspicious Web sites. Watch out for copycat sites that may try to look like financial institutions or other trusted companies that you do business with. To make sure you're visiting a legitimate site, type the business' address directly into your browser, or use a bookmark that you previously created.
  • Verify that it's FDIC insured. If you're considering an online bank, verify the bank is legitimate and that its deposits are insured by the FDIC.
  • Use public computers with caution. Only access your personal financial information from a computer you trust. Internet kiosks and cyber cafes may not be as secure as your personal computer.
