Security

A top priority

Notice: October 1st is the initial date when financial institutions need to initiate the process to provide EMV debit cards. We have started the process to provide our customers with EMV cards with delivery scheduled from April-June 2016. The same security features apply to our non-EMV and EMV cards.

Debit Card Security

Online Security

Information security is one of our highest priorities. We use state-of-the-art software and other technologies to prevent unauthorized users from accessing our systems. Some of the measures are very apparent—encryption of sensitive data, password protections etc. Some of the protocols, although less obvious, are equally effective. For example, your User ID and password are entered on a page that does not use the https protocol, but the data is encrypted when you submit it. Once you click the "log on" button, we secure the connection to our servers using SSl technology, then transmit your User ID and password. Once received, this information is transported within our system via an encrypted network.

By utilizing Digital Certificate technology, westbury bank ensures the accuracy and security of any data that is transmitted to us using our secure forms. Digital encryption technology utilizes a long set of codes to scramble and then decode information. A digital key is simply a very special number or group of numbers that is carefully chosen to have certain mathematical properties. Depending on the encryption algorithm being used the key may be a large random number or a set of related numbers. These keys are the basis of on-line identity verification. Once information has been scrambled using the public set of codes for westbury bank, the only place they can ever be decoded is on our Secure Server. This data is not shared with or sold to any other institution or group.

Another very important part of this technology has to do with secure browsers. Most modern browsers easily handle encryption codes, however if you are using an older version of the software, it would be wise to upgrade now.

Then you know you have the best security protection available. To test your current browser, see the information below. There are several ways to tell if the security is working.

  • A small window may pop up to tell you that this is a secure link and do you want to continue...
  • When it does switch over to a secure link, look at the link address up in the location window of your browser. Instead of the usual http:// you will notice that it has changed to https:// The 's' denotes Secure Mode.
  • If that does NOT show up, you are not in secure mode.
  • Most browsers also have a small graphic that will pop up and stay in the lower right hand corner of the browser window to denote that you are browsing in a secure mode. A picture of a lock, similar to the one used in our secure graphic, is a good example.
    If you do not see that it is performing the security based on the notes above, please feel free to download a newer version of the browser now.
