Known as 2FA for short, two-factor authentication is a security measure on our internet banking platform. It requires not only a username and password but also an extra piece of information that only you know to enhance security levels even further.
Visa-verified prompts on purchases
Verified by Visa helps protect you against unauthorised card use when you shop at participating retailers, giving you confidence when shopping online with your CD Bank Visa Debit card. At participating merchants, you may be asked to verify your identity – this ensures that the owner of the card is the person completing the transaction.
Internet banking encryptions
We use a range of security measures to assist in protecting your personal banking information. These measures include data encryption and firewalls which together helps to provide some of the best security available to keep you safe online.
What is encryption?
Encryption is turning words and numbers into a coded language. Encryption prevents unauthorised users from being able to change or read your data. CD Bank’s Internet Banking platform encrypts your personal data using TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption technology to secure all communications between our servers and your web browser. You can identify whether the Internet Banking session is secure or encrypted when you see https:// in the Address bar and/or when you see a padlock in the bottom right corner of the browser window. You can double click on the padlock to view the Digital Certificate i.e. the electronic signature to view details.
What is a firewall?
A firewall simply put is a network security system that monitors and controls the incoming and outgoing network traffic and we use these mechanisms to prevent unauthorised access to and from our Internet Banking network.
