Assuring Your Online Security


hen you visit your credit union online in the coming months, there’s a good chance you’ll notice some changes. These changes have to do with how you identify yourself and gain access to your accounts over the internet, and are designed to make you safer than ever before from account hijacking and identity theft. These changes are based on the realization that internet fraudsters have become increasingly sophisticated, making “single-factor authentication”—a simple password, for example—inadequate for some of your online financial transactions. “Financial institutions offering internet-based products and services… should use effective methods to authenticate the identity of members…”

In addition to single and multi-factor authentication, your credit union may also

These layers might include ■ Additional controls, “Financial institutions such as call-back should rely on (voice) verification, multiple layers of control to prevent e-mail approval, or fraud and safeguard cell phone based member information.” identification. ■ Employing member verification procedures, especially when opening accounts online. ■ Analyzing certain transactions to identify suspicious patterns ■ Establishing dollar limits that require manual intervention to exceed a preset limit. Importantly, the methods used will be those needed to assure your safety and security when conducting online financial business. It’s your credit union’s top priority!
