Depend Upon Us For Security
At Pacific Resource, there is nothing more important to us than knowing your financial transactions are private and secure. Online Banking security is ensured by the use of multiple protection measures that work together to create a safe and secure environment. Let's take a quick look at the security measures at each stop along the way.
To start, your web browser is required to have 128-bit encryption capability. This feature will prevent anyone from "eavesdropping" on your data as it travels between you and Pacific Resource. When you log in to Online Banking, our computers verify your web browser software can communicate using a 128-bit encryption key. Behind the scenes, and in a matter of milliseconds, your computer and the Credit Union's computers randomly pick a number that will serve as the "key" during your brief time online.
This type of security is called Secure Sockets Layer, or SSL. It is based on the fact that the pool of possible numbers that can be selected for use during a 128-bit session is very large. So large that it is practically impossible to guess the number (key) used when scrambling and unscrambling data as it passes between you and the Credit Union. Once your information reaches the Credit Union via the Internet, it passes through firewalls.
Enhanced Login Security
In addition to your personal password security, Pacific Resource provides additional security measures with Enhanced Login Security. Enhanced Login Security strengthens the safeguards in place at login by adding steps to verify your identity. Part of this process includes recognizing the computer you normally use to access Online Banking. When you log in with your normal computer, you'll enter your member number and Password as normal. If you are using a computer than has been enrolled in Enhanced Login Security, that's it. If you choose to log in from a computer you don't normally use, you will be prompted to answer three security questions as well.
Automatic Sign Off
If you have to step away from your work station for even a few minutes and are unable to or forget to sign off from your Online Banking session, Pacific Resource will automatically end your session if there is no activity for an extended period of time.
