The convenience of banking through the internet is sometimes overshadowed by concerns that your private account information could fall into the wrong hands.
At First Northeast Bank of Nebraska, security is the top priority. To this end we have a firewall between the internet and our client information preventing unauthorized access as well as only communicating through web browsers that support Secure Socket Layer (SSL). As a final security measure we encrypt all data communications using state of the art encryption technology and Multi-Factor Authentication.
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL)
Secure Sockets Layer provides a way for your browser to ensure that you are in fact logging on to the First Northeast Bank of Nebraska server and not a site that is attempting to impersonate our server. Before you log on the First Northeast Bank of Nebraska server it sends our public key to your browser program. SSL lets your browser verify the identity of our server by viewing the site’s certificate. A certificate is a way of associating a public key to a name.
Once SSL has authenticated the server, your browser and our server will create an individual symmetric key. This key will allow our server to communicate with your browser through encrypted transmissions of data. The symmetric key is valid for a single use only. If you log out and log on again at another time the server and your browser will create a new unique key.
Enhanced Login Security (Multifactor Authentication)
In addition we offer Enhanced Login Security for extra security protection; this is an online feature that provides you additional protection from fraud and identity theft. This feature identifies you as the true owner of your accounts by recognizing not only your password, but also the computer(s) you login from regularly. If you are not recognized, you will be asked for information that only you know before being allowed access.
It is important to verify that only authorized persons log into online banking. This is achieved by verifying your password. When you submit your password, it is compared with the password we have stored in our secure data center. You play a crucial role in preventing others from logging on to your account. Never use easy-to-guess password. Never reveal your password to another person and you should change your password periodically. In addition we offer a limited number of incorrect password attempts resulting in the account being locked for your security. The incorrect password attempts are monitored to detect any suspicious activity.
