Internet Security Q&AInternational Finance Bank takes security over the Internet seriously, and has applied a wide range of security technology and methods to protect the interaction between you and the Bank. The following are features that International Finance Bank uses to increase its security:
SECURE CONNECTION & FIREWALLS
As soon as you start the login process to IFBeBanking, a secured connection is established between the IFBeBanking server and your computer, based on the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. This technology is widely used by financial institutions, and encodes the data that is exchanged between your computer and International Finance Bank This encoding, or scrambling, of data is referred to as encryption, and International Finance Bank requires browsers that support a minimum of 128-bit encryption technology.
You can see that encryption is switched on in Microsoft Internet Explorer when a small yellow “closed lock” icon which appears in the bottom right hand-side of your browser.
IFBeBanking is also protected by firewalls, which are special combinations of software and computers, designed to prevent unauthorized access to your account details via the Internet.
LIMITED INACTIVE LOG-IN SESSION
If you are logged-on to your Account, but do not use IFBeBanking for a certain amount of time, you are automatically disconnected: your session times-out. This means that you need to log in again. This ensures that no unauthorized person can use your previous log-in when you leave your computer unattended.
YOUR PERSONAL USER ID AND PASSWORD
Your password and login ID are intended to provide security against unauthorized entry and access to your accounts. We have established "strong password" criteria. Your password must utilize both upper and lower case alpha and numeric characters for security purposes. Your password should not be associated with any commonly known personal identification, such as social security numbers, address, date of birth, names of children, and should be memorized rather than written down.
