Security at Park Bank
At Park Bank, we use leading-edge technology to protect the confidentiality of your information and online transactions. We use a combination of security measures that are among the best in the ecommerce industry.
- Encryption - We use the highest industry standard for online security – Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption – to encrypt your personal information, such as user IDs, passwords and account information. Your personal information is scrambled en route and decoded once it reaches your browser. We use 128-bit encryption, one of the highest level generally available today. Our secure servers are also protected by numerous firewalls, which are constantly monitored with the intent to prevent security breaches. This process helps safeguard your banking session from intruders.
- Authentication - Account access is restricted by confidential user IDs and passwords. You are responsible for not sharing your user ID, password and other confidential account information with anyone, including family, friends, accountant or employee. Do not write your password on something others may see. Never access the banking site from a computer that an untrusted individual may have access to. Contact us immediately if you suspect someone has discovered it.
We confirm your identity using two additional components: complex device profiling and "step-up" authentication which will either require entry of a one-time security code or ask you to answer out-of-wallet questions (consumer accounts only).
- Sign on information - We show the last day and time you signed on to online banking.
- System time-out - You will be automatically signed out of online and mobile banking after several minutes of inactivity.
- Firewall security - Park Bank uses leading firewall and network security technology to protect our internal computer systems from unauthorized access.
We take the security of your information seriously. Check here periodically to stay updated on the latest major security alerts. We also provide helpful resources for how to protect the security of your financial resources:
