Online Security Is Our Top Priority
At the Roberts County National Bank, security of accounts and privacy of our customer’s information is always a top priority. The advent of new technology and mainstreaming of electronic banking services, such as Internet banking, has meant that banks must be even more diligent in protecting their customer’s information.
In response to widening electronic banking services and the increasing potential for fraudulent transactions, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has developed additional supervisory guidelines for banks to follow in order to help protect consumers and businesses.
There are many steps consumers and businesses can take to help protect from fraud. If you are a consumer CLICK HERE for a brochure on the FFIEC’s consumer guidance and information about safe online banking. If you have a business, CLICK HERE for FFIEC business account guidance and information on protecting your business accounts.
