Community Bank Online incorporates industry standard security features that protect your data so you can manage your money with safety and confidence. We want to provide you with peace of mind when you access your account information.
Community Bank Online utilizes encryption technology, which is the scrambling of information for transmission back and forth between two points so that it cannot be read by unauthorized parties. A key is required to decode the information. When you request information about your accounts, the request is sent encrypted to Community Bank. We then decode your request for information and send it back to you in an encrypted format. When you receive it, your information is decoded so that you can read it. Because your account information is being transmitted between you and Community Bank, encryption protects your account information so it can't be intercepted and read by a third party.
In addition, Community Bank provides a service called SiteKey, an online banking security feature used to help confirm the identity of the bank and the customer. Using SiteKey is like having a safe deposit box that requires 2 keys to open. Before the customer and the bank agree to open the box together, they confirm each other's identity. You can select one of thousands of images, a brief phrase and choose challenge questions. Both you and Community Bank pass that information securely back and forth to confirm your identities prior to transacting activity on your accounts. If you do not see the SiteKey you selected while you are attempting to login to Community Bank Online, do not enter your user name or password and Contact Customer Service at 1-800-239-9427 immediately.
And we encourage you to always take steps in addition to these Community Bank security features to protect your personal information. Here are some tips:
Yes. Community Bank is committed to making Community Bank Online safe and secure to provide you with peace of mind when you access your account information. To ensure the security of your account information, Online Banking also uses 128-bit SSL encryption. To help protect your privacy while you are using the service, we will sign you out of Community Bank Online after 15 minutes of inactivity. However, you can modify the timeout period by going to Service Center > Services > Update email, User Name, or Password.
SSL stands for Secure Socket Layer. This technology allows users to establish sessions with Internet sites that are secure, meaning they have minimal risk of external violation. Once inside the Community Bank Online site, you are secure through our use of SSL technology.
Encryption is the scrambling of information for transmission back and forth between two points. A key is required to decode the information. When you request information about your accounts, the request is sent encrypted to Community Bank. We then decode your request for information and send it back to you in an encrypted format. When you receive it, your information is decoded so that you can read it. Because your account information is being transmitted between you and Community Bank, encryption protects your account information so it can't be intercepted and read by a third party.
There are basically two types of encryption: High and Standard. The difference between these types of encryption is the strength of capability. A High (128-bit) encryption is exponentially more powerful than a Standard (40 or 56-bit) encryption. High or 128-bit encryption means there are septillion possible keys that could fit into the lock that holds your account information, but only one that works each time you bank online. Community Bank Online uses the highest level of encryption (128-bit) to ensure your online transmissions are secure.
A Global Certificate is a specialized SSL certificate which raises the minimum security level for all users to 128-bit encryption, even for those browsers that do not have the 128-bit feature turned on. This technology was developed to enable customers to temporarily interact with Web sites that demand a minimum encryption level of 128-bit. Therefore, our Global Certificates will automatically raise your security level for the duration of your Community Bank Online session, thereby providing added assurance that your data is protected.
