Security Standards

We strive to maintain the privacy of our members confidential information while providing our members with all the conveniences of internet delivery channels.

Sb1 Federal Credit Union's eBanking and Bill Payer Service uses industry standard security features as outlined below to assure the confidentiality of this information.

  • Sb1's eBanking uses secure communication. eBanking will only allow browsers that support Secure Socket Layers (SSL). SSL ensures that electronic data communicated between your browser and Sb1 sites cannot be read by third parties even if the data is intercepted. Sb1 requires that you use a browser with 128 bit encryption.
  • eBanking also requires that you enter a Personal Identification Number (PIN) to verify your identity. In addition to the PIN verification, eBanking will verify additional identifying information prior to processing your request.
  • Sb1's eBanking has a timer that will end your session if you do not interact with the site for a predefined period of time.
  • Sb1's eBanking uses a state of the art firewall to secure information of member data stored in our systems, from penetration by unauthorized parties. The firewall serves as a control point to stop invasive data from entering our systems and assuring that only authorized data leaves our systems.

ID Theft

Look out for Identity Theft

Identity theft is whenever someone uses your personal or financial information without your consent. It is important to always be on guard against identity theft because thieves are constantly looking for new ways to steal your information. Failing to pay attention to the early warning signs can make it easier for them to take advantage of you.

To know if you've been a crime victim, be on the look out for:

  • Credit card and checking account statements that don't arrive when they should.
  • Being denied credit for no reason.
  • Bills for purchases you never made.
  • Collection agencies trying to collect on debts that you didn't incur.
  • Bills from credit accounts you did not open. (To stop receiving unsolicited credit card offers by calling 888-5 "optout")
  • Unauthorized charges on your telephone or checking account statements.
  • Credit reports showing new, unauthorized accounts.

If you have been a victim of identity theft, take swift action:

  • Place a fraud alert on your credit file by contacting a major credit reporting bureau (Trans Union, Experian, or Equifax). The other bureaus will be notified and will place alerts on their files. Free reports will be sent to you.
  • Alert affected businesses over the phone and in writing. Close tampered accounts or those opened without your consent.
  • File a police report. Ask for a copy of the report too - you may need it for businesses requiring proof of the crime.
  • Report the crime to the Federal Trade Commission.
