Security Policy and Practices at The Bank of Kaukauna
The rapidly evolving use of technology has opened the doors to vast amounts of information, and has provided the ability to transact business with lightning speed. Unfortunately, it is also a haven for some people with bad intentions. Identity theft is one of the fastest growing crimes in the United States. It occurs when personal information (examples: your name, social security number, account numbers, etc.) is obtained by an unauthorized party and used for unlawful activities.
We will do what is necessary to provide a secure environment for you to transact your banking online. We utilize appropriate technology to ensure all customer information is safe and secure, and to protect against unauthorized access. We use Multifactor Authentication security to identify you as the legitimate user trying to access your accounts. The transmission of data between your computer and the database containing your private information is encrypted for your privacy and protection. Those systems are further protected by up-to-date antivirus software and firewall security.
The Bank of Kaukauna will never ask for confidential information through e-mail and will never ask for your password or PIN through e-mail, via the telephone or in person.

Additionally, you agree to protect the confidentiality of your User ID and Password by not sharing them or leaving them in a place where they are easily accessible by others.
Protecting Yourself from Identity Theft
We strongly urge you to do everything possible to protect yourself from identity theft. If you go to www.onguardonline.gov, you can learn more about fraud and identity theft.
You should also become aware of “phishing” (pronounced “fishing”) schemes, which are high-tech scams that use spam or pop-up messages to deceive you into disclosing your credit card numbers, bank account information, Social Security number, passwords, or other sensitive information. Please visit www.ftc.gov/bcp/edu/pubs/consumer/alerts/alt127.htm on the Federal Trade Commission web site to protect yourself from this rapidly growing method of identity theft.
