Online Banking Safety

At Clear Lake Bank & Trust, we have contracted with industry experts to ensure we are providing the highest level of safety and security when it comes to protecting your financial and private information.

There are, however, steps you should take to do your part in protecting your information.  Below are some suggestions that will help you secure your confidential information, such as:

  • Buying a firewall to protect your computer from the dangers of an "always on" internet connection.

  • Installing anti-virus, anti-malware, and spam software on your computer and making sure it is up-to-date.

  • Don't keep ignoring those reminders to update your anti-virus and other protection software.  If they are out-of-date, your computer is at risk.

  • Be suspicious of emails that claim you have won something or that you have won a lottery.

  • Change your computer and Internet passwords every 45-60 days.

  • Shred confidential documents instead of throwing them in your garbage.
