Keeping Your Money Safe Online


As scams and hacking techniques become more and more sophisticated, new online threats are continually being developed, both in the United States and internationally. Organized cyber crime groups have become a major force in expanding online fraud and theft. In response to ever evolving threats to your financial security, the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC) has recently issued new supervisory guidance designed to help make online transactions more secure.

The new guidance means you may begin to see new security features on the websites you visit. Each of Bank Forward’s online products has built-in security features which are continually enhanced in response to changing threats. Some of these enhancements are visible to you, the user, but others occur behind the scenes.


Report Suspicious Activity

If you see suspicious activity on your account(s) or have received a suspicious call, email, letter or other contact regarding your relationship with Bank Forward, please contact your local branch.
