By utilizing Digital Certificate technology, FNB
Bemidji ensures the
accuracy and security of any data that is transmitted to us using our secure forms.
Digital encryption technology utilizes a long set of codes to scramble and then
decode information. A digital key is simply a very special number or group of numbers that
is carefully chosen to have certain mathematical properties. Depending on the encryption
algorithm being used the key may be a large random number or a set of related numbers.
These keys are the basis of on-line identity verification. Once information has been
scrambled using the public set of codes for FNB Bemidji, the only place they can ever be decoded
is on our Secure Server. This data is not shared with or sold to any other
institution or group.
Another very important part of this technology has to do with
secure browsers. Most modern browsers easily handle encryption codes, however if you
are using an older version of the software, it would be wise to upgrade now. Then
you know you have the best security protection available.
All applications on our site use this secured technology. Please note that emails are not
secure transmissions so remember never to send account numbers, social
security numbers or any other information you would like to keep private to FNB
Bemidji or anyone
else in an email message.
Thank you. Any further questions or comments, please
