Deerwood Bank’s online banking system utilizes a layered security approach to authenticate the identity of our customers and minimize the risk of unauthorized access to your accounts. Our fraud detection monitoring system considers each customer’s history and behavior pattern, alerting bank staff of any “red flag” activities.
Most importantly, our Online Banking System allows you, our personal customer, to set-up a wide variety of account alerts, customized to meet your individual needs. You can receive a text, email or secure message alert anytime any of the following occur:
- Password change attempt
- Log-in from outside a specified geographic region (e.g. out of state)
- Internal transfer amount greater than $xxx.xx
- Additional personalized notifications can also be customized right online also
