Security is one of our top priorities. Keep these best practices in mind to help safeguard your business and your customers.

  • Be aware of phishing scams that may direct you to a fake website. Check the spelling of URLs, and make sure the website is secure with “https” at the beginning of the URL. 
  • Don’t share usernames. Create strong passwords and change them often. 
  • Use two-factor authentication to add an extra layer of security.  
  • Do not provide access codes, personal and financial information via email, text or to unsolicited callers. We will never call you to ask you for this information.  
  • If you receive an email or text from an organization and are unsure if it’s real, don’t click on any links.  
  • Always verify requests for information. 
  • Follow PCI Security Standards and have systems in place that protect all your devices. 
  • Keep operating systems up to date.  
  • Limit system access and administrative privileges to only those who need it.
