Account Security
Why should I care about computer security?

We use computers for everything from banking and investing to shopping and communicating with others through email or chat programs. Although you may not consider your communications "top secret," you probably do not want strangers reading your email, using your computer to attack other systems, sending forged email from your computer, or examining personal information stored on your computer (such as financial statements). When you begin transmitting confidential, non-public information over the internet, the need for computer security is even more critical. To learn more, visit bankfivenine.com/security.

What can I do to Protect Myself?

  • Your identity is one of the most valuable things you own. It’s important to keep your identity from being stolen by someone who can potentially harm your good name and financial well-being. Identity theft occurs when someone uses your name, address, Social Security Number, credit card or financial account numbers, passwords, and other personal information without your knowledge to commit fraud or other crimes. While the words may sound like a foreign language -- Phishing, Pharming, Vishing, Spyware, Dumpster Diving — they are actually techniques used by thieves to put your identity and finances at risk, and their attacks grow more frequent and sophisticated every year. Identity theft is the fastest growing crime in the United States. According to US Department of Justice statistics, it’s now passing drug trafficking as the number one crime in America. The simple fact is that you can protect yourself against most forms of identity theft. The first step is education. To learn more ways to protect yourself from Identity Theft, visit bankfivenine.com/security.
  • Keep all applications, including your operating system, patched. Vendors will usually release patches for their software when vulnerability has been discovered. Most product documentation offers a method to get updates and patches. You should be able to obtain updates from the vendor's website. Read the manual or browse the vendor's website for more information. Some applications will automatically check for available updates, and many vendors offer automatic notification of updates via a mailing list. Look on your vendor's web site for information about automatic notification. If no mailing list, or other automated notification mechanism is offered, you may need to check periodically for updates.
  • Keep security software current: Having the latest security software, web browser, and operating system are the best defenses against viruses, malware, and other online threats.
  • Automate software updates: Many software programs will automatically connect and update to defend against known risks. Turn on automatic updates if that’s an available option.
  • Protect all devices that connect to the Internet: Along with computers, your smartphones, gaming systems and other web-enabled devices also need protection from viruses and malware.
  • Plug & scan: USBs and other external devices can be infected by viruses and malware. Use your security software to scan them.
  • Keep track of account transactions. Review your bank statements as regularly as possible to rule out the chances of fraudulent transactions. If you notice discrepancies, contact your bank immediately.
  • Only use Wi-Fi on your device when connected to password protected hotspots. Turn-off any auto-connect features. They might cause your phone to log into insecure wireless networks without your knowledge.

How does Bank Five Nine protect me?

Multifactor Authentication Security Challenges - The online banking service evaluates your device and usage patterns during the sign-in procedure. If the system cannot establish your authenticity, for your protection during the sign-in process the system may prompt you for further authentication. You may be able to authenticate your identity by choosing between answering a challenge question or a onetime passcode. Username and Password - For your protection, you must sign in using a user name and password to move money. System Timeouts - When using our Online or Mobile banking we provide automatic session timeouts just in case you forget to log out. Green Bar SSL - The green bar, exclusive to EV SSL certificates, means you are transacting business on a highly secured, trustworthy domain. Alerts - We provide you with free low balance notifications to help monitor your accounts. Failed Login Attempts - After 3 failed password attempts, all services are locked.

How do I practice safe Internet surfing?

Follow these steps to protect your computer from the majority of Internet crime:
  1. Make sure you have anti-virus and anti-spyware software installed on your computer, keep them updated, and run a full system scan at least weekly.
  2. Keep your computer operating system up to date, and your firewall turned on.
  3. Use strong passwords for secure sites. These should include eight or more characters with random numbers, and change your passwords every six months.
  4. If you download anything from the Internet such as music, movies, or pictures, make sure you do so only from trusted websites. Downloads can be infected with spyware attached to the file.
  5. Watch for signs of spyware—frequent pop up ads, unexpected icons on your desktop, random error messages or sluggish computer performance are all signs of infection. Run a full system anti-virus and anti-spyware scan to safely remove.
  6. Be careful when using public computers to perform any type of personal transactions. Just logging into a Website may give away passwords and other private information if spyware has been installed on that computer.
