While we do everything possible to protect your online information on our systems, there are also practical things you can do to reduce the risks associated with online and mobile banking fraud. We provided some security tips, best practices and trusted resources below.
Many companies keep sensitive personal information about customers or employees in their files or on their network. Having a sound security plan in place to collect only what you need, keep it safe, and dispose of it securely can help protect that sensitive data. To find out more information about keeping data secure, visit the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) website.
Don’t share your identity…protect it. The fastest growing crime today is identity theft. Identity theft occurs when someone steals key pieces of your personal identification such as Social Security number, bank account numbers, birth date etc. and uses it for illegal purposes. For more information about identity theft and how to protect your identity, please visit the Federal Trade Commission (FTC).

Phishing, vishing, and smishing all involve spoofed communication that appears to be from a legitimate business urging you to “act immediately” or your account might be closed.
Phishing is a type of social engineering attack often used to steal personal identity data, financial account credentials or any other valuable data.
Smishing is very much like phishing where a scam is sent via text messages on mobile devices instead of emails. These scams try to trick users with messages that appear to be legitimate alerts from River City Bank.
Vishing is the telephone version of phishing, or a voice scam, designed to trick victims into sharing personal information, such as PIN numbers, social security numbers, credit card security codes, passwords and other personal data.
Attackers love jailbroken and rooted phones. Jailbroken/rooted phones put your data at risk along with your personal information. Many mobile users are attracted to jailbreaking or rooting their device in order to gain more control over the device, upgrade their operating systems or install apps normally unavailable through standard channels. While having these options may allow the user to utilize the device more effectively, many users do not understand that jailbreaking/rooting can potentially allow malware to bypass many of the device’s built-in security features. If a vulnerable app is installed on a jailbroken/rooted phone, attackers can easily exploit them and potentially gain all the information on the phone. It’s your decision on whether the potential risks are worth the perceived benefits of jailbreaking/rooting, but it is not recommended.
