CIBM BANK offers a variety of Web-based banking services. To ensure that these services are provided in a secure and private manner, CIBM Bank uses a full range of Internet security measures designed to protect our customers and the bank. These security measures include the use of cryptography; secure browsers and servers, routers and firewalls, SSL protocol, digital certificates, passwords and PINs, and cookies. The security measures allow CIB Marine Bancshares, Inc. to properly authenticate and identify our customers accessing our Online Banking Services, and to protect your personal information, as it travels over the Internet.

CRYPTOGRAPHY - All customer information is encrypted and authenticated using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. SSL allows for information to be sent and received securely over the Internet. When a SSL connection occurs, security features within the browser and the server create a secure connection, in which all information shared is encrypted and de-crypted by only the intended recipients, ensuring that all data and transactions are secure as they are communicated over the Internet.

FIREWALLS - Firewalls are a combination of hardware and software that measure and limit access to a server or network for security purposes. The firewall is a system between the Internet and a network to provide security from the Internet to the internal network. The firewall keeps track of transaction activity, the time of each transaction, and who performed it.

COOKIES - Each browser accessing CIBM Bank's Online Banking Service is given a "cookie". A "cookie" is a piece of information sent by a web server to a web browser. The web browser saves and sends the cookie back to the server each time the browser accesses the site. Cookies allow a web site to identify whether or not a user previously visited the site.
