Best Practices for Internet Banking Use

The security and protection of your account information is very important to us. Panhandle State Bank, which includes its divisions, Intermountain Community Bank and Magic Valley Bank, utilize state of the art firewalls and other security software and protocols to protect your data and authenticate user access.

However, since account information and sensitive data can be obtained directly from your personal and business computers, we strongly recommend that you take the following actions to further protect your computers and the data you access. Failure to take these actions can leave your computers and accounts vulnerable to unauthorized access and transactions which may result in losses to you and/or your business.

The following information is provided as a guide for best practices, but is in no way to be viewed as an all-inclusive list of all security practices and Internet banking threats. Best practices change as the industry and risks regarding Internet banking evolve. It is the responsibility of the users of Internet banking to stay updated and educated concerning security practices.

Panhandle State Bank, which includes its divisions, Intermountain Community Bank and Magic Valley Bank, recommends that you incorporate these best practices into your everyday computing practices and also when conducting Internet banking transactions. Failure to follow these best practices may expose your accounts and computers to unauthorized access and withdrawal of your account funds. All Internet banking transactions initiated with appropriate user identification and/or passwords will be presumed to have been initiated by the authorized user so protection of those credentials from theft and unauthorized use is essential to protect your account.
