7 Tips to Protect Your Identity

Identity theft continues to be one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. In 2017, there were 16.7 million victims of identity fraud in the U.S., according to Javelin Strategy and Research. Powell Valley National Bank recommends following these tips to keep your information – and your money – safe.

 

  1. Don’t share your secrets.

Don’t provide your Social Security number or account information to anyone who contacts you online or over the phone. Protect your PINs and passwords, and do not share them with anyone. Use a combination of letters and numbers for your passwords and change them periodically. Do not reveal sensitive or personal information on social networking sites.

 

  1. Shred sensitive papers.

Shred receipts, banks statements, and unused credit card offers before throwing them away.

 

  1. Keep an eye out for missing mail.

Fraudsters look for monthly bank or credit card statements or other mail containing your financial information. Consider enrolling in online banking to reduce the likelihood of paper statements being stolen. Also, don’t mail bills from your own mailbox with the flag up.

 

  1. Use online/mobile banking to protect yourself.

Monitor your financial accounts regularly for fraudulent transactions. Sign up for text alerts from Powell Valley National Bank for certain types of transactions.

 

  1. Protect your computer.

Make sure the virus protection software on your computer is active and up to date. When conducting business online, make sure your browser’s padlock or key icon is active. Also look for an “s” after the “http” to be sure the website is secure.

 

  1. Protect your mobile device.

Use the passcode lock on your smartphone and other devices. This will make it more difficult for thieves to access your information if your device is lost or stolen. Before you donate, sell or trade your mobile device, be sure to wipe it using specialized software or using the manufacturer’s recommended technique. Some software allows you to wipe your device remotely if it is lost or stolen. Use caution when downloading apps, as they may contain malware, and avoid opening links and attachments – especially from senders you don’t know.

 

  1. Report any suspected fraud to your bank immediately.

5 Ways to Protect Your Small Business from Account Fraud

Business Banking

Corporate account takeover is a type of fraud where thieves gain access to a business’ finances to make unauthorized transactions, including transferring funds from the company, creating and adding new fake employees to payroll, and stealing sensitive customer information that may not be recoverable. Powell Valley National Bank recommends following these tips to keep your small business safe.

 

  1. Educate your employees. You and your employees are the first line of defense against corporate account takeover. A strong security program paired with employee education about the warning signs, safe practices, and responses to a suspected takeover are essential to protecting your company and customers.

 

  1. Protect your online environment. It is important to protect your cyber environment just as you would your cash and physical location. Do not use unprotected internet connections. Encrypt sensitive data and keep updated virus protections on your computer. Use complex passwords and change them periodically.

 

  1. Partner with your bank to prevent unauthorized transactions. Talk to us about programs that safeguard you from unauthorized transactions. We have services that offer call backs, device authentication, multi-person approval processes, and batch limits help protect you from fraud.

 

  1. Pay attention to suspicious activity and react quickly. Look out for unexplained account or network activity, pop-ups, and suspicious emails. If detected, immediately contact your financial institution, stop all online activity, and remove any systems that may have been compromised. Keep records of what happened.

 

  1. Understand your responsibilities and liabilities. The account agreement with your bank will detail what commercially reasonable security measures are required in your business. It is critical that you understand and implement the security safeguards in the agreement. If you don’t, you could be liable for losses resulting from a takeover. Contact us if you have any questions about your responsibilities.
