The Bank follows its established standards for administrative, technical and physical safeguards of customer records. Additionally, the program shall meet the standards mandated by the interagency guidelines establishing standards for safeguarding customer information.

The Bank will review the measures that it has taken to safeguard customer information. The review takes into account the on-going changes in technology and the internal and external changes that the Bank goes through in addition to the complexity and scope of the Bank's activities.

Access to customer information is limited only to authorized individuals and the Bank maintains appropriate security standards and procedures to restrict access.
All employees of the Bank that require access to the Bank's computers to perform their duties shall be given a unique password and user identification code for use in logging onto the Bank's system. The Information Security Officer will review user access/profile listings on a regular basis. Passwords shall be designed to not be easily decipherable. All passwords shall be modeled to the tasks that the employee holding the password requires access to perform their duties and no others. All passwords shall be changed as needed, but not less than once every 90 days. Password length, timeout intervals, hours of access and lockouts will be utilized to further limit access.
Whenever a password holder's employment with the Bank is terminated, that employee's password is to be invalidated. Dual control procedures and segregation of duties are utilized for employees with access to customer information and the Bank takes any necessary disciplinary measures to enforce employee privacy responsibilities.
The Bank's facility and equipment shall be physically secure from damage and secure from unauthorized access. The Bank's personal computers shall be kept in secure areas and removable disks with Bank data shall be kept in secured areas when not in use.

Network security and operating systems are maintained on a regular basis through patches, updates, etc. In addition, virus protection is maintained on all systems. These security systems are routinely tested by an independent third party.

The printed record shall be given to the person in the Bank responsible for handling of the issue in question.

All employees need to understand all aspects of the Bank's information security program and their role in it. All personnel must also understand the Bank?s record retention and storage procedures. Information security training will be documented in writing.
Third Party Service Providers
When dealing with "third party service providers", the Bank will request a written statement from these providers attesting to having a Security Program that meets the security objectives outlined in this policy. The Information Security Officer shall oversee these agreements and insure that due diligence is exercised in selecting these providers in making sure customer information is kept secure and implementing procedures to ensure the information is protected. The Information Security Officer shall monitor the service providers for compliance with this policy.
