Security starts with you

Cybercrime is a quickly growing industry and you are the target. Follow these easy and effective strategies to keep your personal and account information safe:

  • Never share your account login details with anyone. If you receive an unsolicited text message, call, or email from a person claiming to represent your bank, or another company, DO NOT respond to any request for your username or password. 1st Security Bank will never ask you for this information.
  • Make sure that your passwords are strong, safe, and unique. Choose a password that is unique and something only you can remember. Phrases are harder to crack than random letters and numbers. It's always a good idea to revisit your passwords and change any that are outdated. Remember, never use an old password, especially one that has been compromised in a data breach.
  • Set up transaction notifications for your accounts. Get notified anytime a transaction hits your account. The quicker you realize something is amiss, the easier it is to stop the fraud.
  • Keep your information up to date. It's important to keep your personal and account information updated.
