ONLINE SECURITY

Lewis & Clark Bank is committed to protecting the privacy and security of our customer's personal and banking information. We take this responsibility very seriously by making sure your account information is not shared with other customers or with any other companies.

CUSTOMER AWARENESS & EDUCATION

Internet security is a concern for consumers and businesses who are trying to protect themselves from unlawful access to their online banking accounts.  The internet has become a primary source for criminals to obtain identifying data, passwords, or banking information and use them to gain unauthorized access to financial accounts for identity theft or other illegal acts. There are several ways you can help protect your banking information, and it is important to educate and protect yourself when using systems connected to the internet.

  1. Keep your computer updated with anti-spyware and anti-virus software. Install security updates that your software provider offers.
  2. Make sure requests for personal, financial, or account information are legitimate, particularly if they are made in an urgent manner. (Lewis & Clark will never request your personal or account information via email) 
  3. Never share account ID number or Passwords with anyone, and do not automatically save these numbers on your computer or smart phone.
  4. Business online banking customers should perform a related risk assessment and controls evaluation periodically.
