Online Banking Security
RSNB Bank is committed to ensuring that your online activities are secure by using industry best practices.
The bank's website will always be transmitted through a secure connection (https:\\). In current web browsers, the address bar and certificate area will be green. If you question the validity of our website, click on the certificate to verify that it is issued to RSNB Bank.
RSNB Bank requires the encryption of all online activity. Customers need to have a secure browser (e.g. Internet Explorer) to access your information. Only browsers with 128-bit encryption are supported. Encryption is accomplished through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) which utilizes mathematical formulas to encrypt or hide information from prying eyes on the Internet. Additionally, if SSL detects that data was added or deleted after you sent it to the bank the connection will be severed in order to guard against any tampering.
RSNB Bank requires multifactor authentication for all online access. This includes the use of a username and password, an authentication image and phrase chosen by the customer, and an encrypted flash cookie that registers a customer's computer to take the place of challenge questions. The purpose is to authenticate customers and ensure that they are logging in from an authorized computer. If you are not using a registered computer, you will be asked a challenge question and may chose to register the computer for future use.
Keep your passwords in a secure place, out of plain view. Don't share your password with anyone. Make sure no one watches you enter your password and never have your browser remember your username or password. Make sure you regularly scan your computer for viruses that could be used to capture password keystrokes. Avoid using common words and never use personally identifying information in your password.
When you are finished with an online session be sure to actually log out of the site rather than just closing the browser window. Actually logging out of the site will remove sensitive information from your system cache and cookies, preventing someone from gleaning sensitive information from them or even assuming your connection by re-launching the website or application. Taking the time to actually log out provides yet another layer of protection in your own security defenses. After a 10-minute period of inactivity, your online account session will be terminated. The purpose is to end online access to idle sessions.
