Security

Bridgewater Bank diligently works to maintain our online security to the highest possible standards. Here are some of the controls used across our online infrastructure:

  • Multi-layered security of servers and applications
  • Multiple layers of internal and external firewalls to protect secure online environments
  • Regular reviews of our security practices and technology updates
  • Regular reviews to ensure our security and privacy policies and standards reflect our industry leading position
  • Use of Secure Socket Layer (SSL) 128-bit encryption to protect the information you send or receive from our secure sites
  • Use of encrypted password logins to our secure websites to help safeguard against unauthorized access to your accounts
  • Automatic session terminations when extended inactivity is detected. This helps to protect your accounts if you are called away from your computer.

Security Mechanisms

We use several layers of security technologies and processes to provide you with secure online access to your accounts and information. These are continuously evaluated and updated to ensure that we protect you and your information. These include:

 

Secure Socket Layer (SSL) Encryption

When you successfully login to the secure portions of our website including MyCardOnline using an authentic user ID and password, the servers will establish a secure socket layer (SSL) connection with your computer. This allows you to communicate with us privately and prevents other computers from seeing your transactions. SSL provides 128-bit encrypted security to ensure sensitive information sent over the internet via online transactions remains confidential.

 

Authentication

For your protection, we provide secure private website(s) for any business that you conduct with us. Users login to these sites using a valid user ID and password. You are required to create your own password(s), which should be kept strictly confidential so that no one else can login to your accounts.

 

Firewalls

We use a multi-layered infrastructure of firewalls to block unauthorized access by individuals or networks to our information servers.

 

Computer Anti-Virus Protection

We are continuously updating our anti-virus protection. This ensures we maintain the latest in anti-virus software to detect and prevent viruses from entering our computer network systems.

 

Data Verification

The information you send to one of our secure private websites is automatically verified to ensure it is not altered during information transfers. Our systems can detect if data was added or deleted after you send information. If any tampering has occurred, the connection is dropped and the invalid information transfer is not processed.
