Online Security

Security is a primary concern for anyone using the Internet today, and particularly for Web based financial transactions.

Glenview State Bank's HOMEBankersm has designed-in security features that safeguard your account, and ensure that all of your transactions are protected.

HOMEBanker takes advantage of the powerful encryption technology available through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) for secure transmissions. This advanced technology prevents monitoring of your account. When your data is transmitted over the Internet, it is encrypted or "scrambled" at the sending end and then decrypted or "unscrambled" at the receiving end. The effectiveness (or level of security) for encryption is measured in terms of how long the key is - the longer the key, the longer it would take for someone without the correct "decoder" to break the code. This security level is measured in bits. HOMEBankersm uses 128-bit encryption, because that is the highest level generally available today. Roughly speaking, 128-bit encryption is 309,485,009,821,345,068,724,781,056 times stronger than 40-bit encryption. Anyone trying to listen in on your communications will not be able to decipher them.
