Our Credit Union is constantly concerned about our member's critical information and privacy. With this in mind, we have the following security services installed on our Internet server: Each server is behind a Firewall. These hardware and software products blocks critical ports and IP addresses on servers from external attack and access. Each server runs proprietary software that constantly monitors the servers for unauthorized use and attempts to "hack" into information. Administrators are contacted when forced attacks are committed, and countermeasures can be applied to stop these instances. All administrative activity requires user login and authentication. All administrative updates are logged into files that can be reviewed later. All application servers come with a Global GoDaddy Certificate (RSA) for digitally encrypted communications between the Web server and your member. Information passed in applications cannot be decrypted by third parties attempting to "pick" information being passed across the Internet backbone.
