At FNBT, the confidentiality and integrity of your information and financial assets are of primary concern. Our teams work tirelessly to ensure that all financial transactions, data transmissions, and communications are conducted in a secure online environment.
Identity Theft Prevention
To safeguard your financial and personal information in an environment of continually evolving threats, we have created a multi-layered security program. Here are some of the steps we take to protect your information:
- We maintain a task force composed of security, information technology, and business professionals. This team is focused on assessing risk, testing the security controls of our services, and executing remediation plans to maintain our secure computing environment.
- We also engage in ongoing application and network threat modeling and penetration testing. This means that before we offer our customers new services and features, we test our services and software to ensure they meet or exceed our high standards of confidentiality and integrity. We also regularly reevaluate our controls to ensure that our services and software withstand newly discovered vulnerabilities and attack vectors or techniques.
- Our rigorous program also includes investment in both the skills of our people and advanced adaptive security systems. Our employees, along with the tools that enable them to do their jobs, are our strongest assets in the fight against hackers and fraudsters.
- We also maintain strong relationships with law enforcement and leaders in the security industry.
Our approach to security creates an advanced web of protection that safeguards your private information and financial assets, while providing the banking services you need. There are also a number of steps you can take to help prevent your personal information from being compromised:
- Install and regularly update virus-detection and anti-spyware programs.
- Always lock or log off your PC when not in use.
- Use preloaded security features.
- Set encryption levels to the strongest setting available, and take note of the encryption levels of regularly visited sites.
- Verify emails regarding security compromises with your bank or financial institution.
- Do not install pirated software or software from an unknown source.
- Use a personal or business designed firewall.
- Do not open emails from unknown addresses and beware of attachments.
- Beware of emails with headers and return addresses with no identifying data.
- Do not share IDs and passwords; create passwords that do not use readily identifiable things like names, birthdates and phone numbers.
- Never include personal account numbers in an email.
- Never make online financial transactions via unfamiliar sites or institutions. Thieves can set up fake sites to steal money or your login information.
- Never access bank accounts at an unfamiliar computer.
- When using a network, ensure that all connections are properly secured.
- View accounts regularly. Report suspected foul play immediately.
- Don't fall for any scam that demands something up front. This includes wiring money, withdrawing cash, providing account information and more. Always verify these offers. If they are reputable, they will stand up to scrutiny.
