Security Features of Business Internet Banking
- Enhanced log in process
We have made the login process to business internet banking easier and yet more secure. We have introduced 2-factor authentication, which requires a combination of something you know and what something you have i.e. security token.
- Auto log off
When you log in to our BIB profile, the system will constantly monitor what you do and log you off if it senses you’re inactive. This helps you stay protected if other people have access your computer or mobile device.
- Temporarily disabling your online access
We will temporarily disable your account if we notice too many failed attempts to log in to your account. There should be few worries about this feature preventing you from accessing your account again – all you need is a phone call to us.
- Extended validation certificates
When you are visiting a secure encrypted website, the website address will always begin with ”https://” and there will be a padlock symbol displayed somewhere within the web browser.
If you are using Internet Explorer 7 or above, when you visit our secure banking website you will see that the address bar turns green. In addition to the right of the address bar, a padlock symbol and our registered company name [Guaranty Trust Bank (UK) Ltd [GB]] are displayed.
Protecting yourself and your PC
- Keep your login details safe
Your security tokens and login details are the keys to your online access. Never write them down, give them to anyone else or include them in an e-mail. Remember that protecting your security details is your responsibility.
- Phishing and fraudulent websites
Fraudsters create authentic looking, but false or “spoof” websites. Their purpose is to trick customers to enter their security information onto fake but usually identical sites to the original site. Always look at the address bar to confirm that our name is always displayed on your browser in the following format: Guaranty Trust Bank (UK) Ltd.
- Phishing and scam emails
Fraudsters create authentic looking, but false emails. Their purpose is to deceive individuals into responding so that the senders can use information obtained to fraudulently obtain your money. Some of these scam emails take the form of offering you something, such as a large sum of money while others contain links to sites where your personal details are asked. The catch is that they want access to your account
GTBank UK will never send letters or emails asking for your personal details. If you receive such, forward it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Anti-virus & anti-spyware software; personal firewalls
It is advisable to install anti-virus and anti-spyware software on your system. It will increase your protection against criminals, hackers & fraudsters.
It is also important to update your anti-virus and anti-spyware software as frequently as possible. This is to protect against criminals who exploit software bugs in older versions of anti-virus software to enable them to infect computers.
