Security Policy

Security

Bank of Bennington recognizes the importance our customers place on privacy and the security of their personal information. Our goal is to protect your personal information in every way we interact with you, whether it’s on the telephone, in our lobby, at one of our ATMs, on your mobile device or on the Internet.

Bank of Bennington has developed strict policies and procedures to safeguard your personal information. We restrict employee access to your nonpublic personal information to a “need to know” basis. We maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards that comply with federal regulations to guard your nonpublic personal information. We educate our employees about the importance of confidentiality and customer privacy.

Passwords

To begin Online Banking, you can enroll one of two ways. Either from Bank of Bennington’s website or through Mobile Banking using the TouchBanking app. During the enrollment process, you will be asked to agree to the Online Banking Disclosure, establish credentials (username/password) and set up challenge questions. Bank of Bennington uses Multifactor Authentication which is an extra layer of security for Online Banking. After the initial sign up, if your computer is not recognized a challenge question will be asked before asking for your password. Our Online Banking system uses a “3 strikes and you’re out” lock out mechanism. After three unsuccessful login attempts, the system locks the user out, requiring a call to the bank to reset the password. If you forget your password, you can select the Forgot Password? link on the website or call the Bank to reset. If you select the Forgot Password? link, you must know your username, last 4 digits of your SSN and email address on file. A temporary password will be emailed to the email address on file. You have 30 minutes to use the temporary password, After logging in with the temporary password, you will be required to change the password. Another email will be sent to confirm that the password was changed.

Your transactions are protected by individual passwords. Bank of Bennington does NOT know your password and Bank of Bennington will not send any account information to your computer unless your Username and Password are correct. Be sure to keep this password private. Do not share it with anyone. Memorize it and do not store the Password on or near your computer. Change your password frequently. Passwords must include letters, numbers, and cannot be a word in the dictionary or based on user information. Remember to exit the Internet browser when leaving the computer or when finished with your banking transactions. For security purposes, Bank of Bennington online sessions will automatically sign you off after 20 minutes of inactivity.
