Commercial Banking Internet Security
In addition to the information provided regarding “Internet Banking Security”, employers should institute additional measures in order to further protect their online banking information. For example:
- Perform your own annual internal risk assessment & evaluation on all online accounts.
- Establish internal policies regarding employee internet usage.
- Ensure all company computers are equipped with up-to-date antivirus protection software.
What is Identify Theft?
Identify theft occurs when someone uses your personal information such as your Social Security number, account number or credit number, without your permission, to commit fraud or other crimes. Protect yourself by:
- Reporting any fraudulent activity you see on your account
- NEVER give out any personal information
- Shred all documentation that contains confidential information (i.e. bank and credit card statements, bills and invoices that contain personal information, expired credit cards and pay-stubs).
- Check your credit report annually
Check Your Credit
ZayZoon does not report your activity to any credit agencies. However, your credit report can be a good way to keep your identity safe. Any consumer can request one free copy of his or her credit report every year. Reviewing your credit report can help you find out if someone has opened unauthorized financial accounts, or taken out unauthorized loans, in your name.
Contact the three major credit bureaus – Equifax (1-800-685-1111), Experian (1-888-397-3742) and Trans Union (1-800-916-8800) to request a copy.
Mobile Banking Safety Tips
Managing your finances using a smartphone or tablet can be very convenient. However, you should consider these safety tips to protect your account information:
- Be proactive in protecting your smartphone and/or tablet by installing anti-malware software on the device.
- Research any application (app) before you download it. Fraudulent apps are often designed with names that look like real apps. It’s best if you access an app using a link from the provider’s website.
- Create a strong password or PIN for your mobile app and your device.
- Use at least eight characters
- Do not use your username, real name or company name
- Do not use a complete word
- Make it significantly different from previous passwords
- Use a character from each of the following categories (some apps may limit symbols)
- Uppercase letters
- Lowercase letters
- Use an auto-lock or time-out feature so your device will lock when it is left unused for a certain period of time.
- Upgrade your device to the latest operating system version.
- Do not jailbreak or root your mobile device. Doing so exposes the security controls and makes your device vulnerable to cyber-attacks.
- Check your account history periodically to make sure there are no fraudulent transactions.
- Take precautions in case your device is lost or stolen, before your device is lost or stolen. Avoid leaving your device unattended in public places.
- Consult your wireless provider to see if they provide a service to remotely erase your device or turn off access to your device and/or account in the event your device is lost or stolen.
- Always conduct your transactions in a safe environment. Use your cellular service or your own internet provider rather than unsecured/public Wi-Fi networks like those offered at coffee shops.
- Don’t send account numbers or PIN in emails or text messages, because those methods are not necessarily secure.
