What we do to keep your information secure
We are continually monitoring and assessing our technology in order to keep your information secure. Here are some of the ways we safeguard our systems:
SSL (Secure Socket Layer)
To ensure your account information is only accessible by you, our Online Banking service employs a secure login process, known as SSL (Secure Socket Layer). SSL is utilised every time data is transferred between yourself and the bank. It protects you in the following ways:
- Authentication – it prevents another computer impersonating the bank
- Encryption – it scrambles data over the Internet
- Data integrity – it verifies and determines that any information sent to us has not been altered in transmission
