Security Features for Online Banking

At Interior Savings protecting your privacy and safeguarding your personal, business and financial information is our highest priority. Our online services offer you the best security currently available and this is done through the use of industry standard security techniques, including:

Mobile alerts

We encourage you to sign up for mobile alerts to be notified by text or email about events that have occurred in your accounts. For instance, get alerted right away anytime someone logs in to your account, if your Personal Access Code is changed or if a new payee or Interac e-Transfer recipient has been added.  You can also set up a notification when any large sums leaves your account or if your account balance falls below a certain threshold. Learn more.

Strong PACs

In order to protect our members and Interior Savings from the ever increasing risk of fraudulent online banking usage, we now require our members to select a more secure PAC. A Strong PAC is longer and more complicated, containing a mixture of letters and numbers. To learn more about fraud and how strong PACs can help to protect you, please read this Government of Canada article on Credit Card Fraud.

High-security website certificate

Interior Savings has enabled a high-security web certificate from Thawte Inc. that positively identifies our website, as being authentic.  Visitors to our website will see a green address and a security status bar with a pad lock that toggles between Interior Savings Credit Union [CA] and Identified by Thawte.  If you click on the security bar you’ll find more information that confirms our website is authenticated by Thawte.  

Security Bar Encryption

Encryption ensures that information cannot be read in transit or changed by scrambling the data using a complex mathematical formula. Some browsers can create a more secure channel than others, owing to the ‘strength’ of their encryption. We use only the strongest channel available - referred to as 128-bit SSL (Secure Socket Layer).

If you have a browser that only supports ‘weaker’ encryption such as 40-bit or 56-bit SSL, you will need to upgrade your browser before using our site. The longer and more complex the ‘key’ is, the stronger the encryption. The 40 and 128 refer to the length of the key. Since 128 is longer, than 40, it is more secure. According to Netscape, 128-bit encryption is trillions of times stronger than 40-bit encryption.

Always here to help.
