Online Security - Steps You Can Take

Steps You Can Take

We invest in technology and processes to ensure a secure electronic environment for all of your financial transactions, data transmissions, and communications. However, online security and protection of your identity and personal information is a team effort. That’s why we recommend you take steps to shield yourself and your computer from attempts to obtain your personal information electronically:
  • Do not share your user ID or password with anyone.
  • Do not send or receive personal or account information by unsecure or unencrypted email.
  • Use Online Banking to check your account balance and transactions regularly. Notify us immediately of unexpected account activity.
  • Never respond to, click any link in, or open an attachment in an email that requests information about you or your accounts. Union Bank never makes such requests. If you accidentally click or respond to such requests, contact us immediately.

Here are some additional steps you can take to protect yourself:
  • Create Effective Passwords. They’re an essential first line of defense in protecting yourself and your information.
  • Be on the alert for Phishing, a process in which fraudsters try to commit fraud through illegitimate emails, text messages, and instant messages.
  • Use anti-spyware software to protect your computer from dangerous Spyware and other dangerous software that distant hackers may use to extract sensitive information from your computer.
  • Add a new layer of security to your computer with Free Webroot Security Software.

Online Security - How We Protect You

Our Online Security Practices

At Union Bank, we believe in investing in your security. The confidentiality and integrity of your information and financial assets are of primary concern. Our teams work tirelessly to ensure that all financial transactions, data transmissions, and communications are conducted in a secure online environment.

To safeguard your financial and personal information in an environment of continually evolving threats, we have created a multilayered security program. Here are some of the steps we take to protect your information:  
  • We maintain a task force composed of security, information technology, and business professionals. This team is focused on assessing risk, testing the security controls of our services, and executing remediation plans to maintain our secure computing environment.
  • We also engage in ongoing application and network threat modeling and penetration testing. This means that before we offer our customers new services and features, we test our services and software to ensure they meet or exceed our high standards of confidentiality and integrity. We also regularly reevaluate our controls to ensure that our services and software withstand newly discovered vulnerabilities and attack vectors or techniques.
  • Our rigorous program also includes investment in both the skills of our people and advanced adaptive security systems. Our employees, along with the tools that enable them to do their jobs, are our strongest assets in the fight against hackers and fraudsters. We certify our employees, ensure they maintain their certifications, and provide them with ongoing advanced training.
  •  We also maintain strong relationships with law enforcement and leaders in the security industry.
Our approach to security creates an advanced web of protection that safeguards your private information and financial assets, while providing the banking services you need.
