Integrity Security Controls

Few things matter more to Integrity Bank than the security of your finances, your privacy and your personal and proprietary information. Yet we also understand that threats to information security are all-too common. Below you’ll find ways to guard against online threats and protect your money, your identity and your privacy.

Protect Your Business

Below, we’ve provided 10 steps to help your business reduce security risks and protect vital data.

  1. Establish Security Principles
    Establish and train your employees to follow important security practices and policies, from requiring strong passwords to following Internet use guidelines to protect customer information and other data. Always send confidential information using encrypted email.
  2. Protect From Cyber Attacks
    Ensure that all company computers are using the latest security software, web browser and operating systems to defend against viruses, malware and online threats. Keep all software updated and complete an Antivirus software scan after each update.
  3. Internet Firewall Security
    Ensure that the company operating system's firewall is enabled to prevent outsiders from accessing data on a private network. Remote employees should also make sure that a firewall protects their home system as well.
  4. Protect Mobile Devices
    Significant security challenges can also be created by mobile devices, especially those that can access the corporate network or contain confidential information. Employees should use password-protected devices, encrypt their data and install security apps to keep criminals from stealing information while the phone is on public networks. Reporting procedures should be established for lost or stolen equipment.
  5. Back-Up Important Business Data
    Critical computer data should be regularly backed up on all company computers, including text documents, spreadsheets, databases, financial files, human resources files and accounts receivable/payable files. Backup data automatically or at least weekly, storing copies offsite or in the Cloud.
  6. Control Access To Computers And Employee User Accounts
    Access and use of business computers by unauthorized individuals should be prevented. Laptops are easy targets for thieves and should be protected. Separate user accounts with strong passwords should be created for each employee. Only trusted IT staff and key personnel should hold administrative privileges.
  7. Secure Wi-Fi Networks
    The workplace Wi-Fi network should be secure, encrypted and hidden to avoid broadcasting the network name, or Service Set Identifier (SSID). Access to the router must be password protected.
  8. Use Common Sense Best Practices
    Integrity Bank provides the most trusted tools and anti-fraud services to protect your business banking, yet you should also ensure that your company is using best practices to increase security, such as isolating payment systems from other less secure programs, and processing payments on computers that don’t use the internet.
  9. Limit Access and Authority
    No single employee should be provided access to all data systems. Employees should not install any software without permission, and should only be given access to the data systems their jobs require.
  10. Passwords and Authentication
    All employees should be required to use unique passwords that are changed every three months. Implementation of multi-factor authentication that requires information beyond a password should be considered.
