Your Security, We Can All Play a Part?

As your financial institution, we take the protection of your information and transaction data very seriously.  But online security is a partnership between us (as the provider of online banking services to you) and you (the user of these services).  As such, it's important that you do two things:

  • keep informed
  • improve your own online security

Keeping Informed

Technology cannot automatically protect you against all fraud and security risks.  A range of email and other online frauds have been attempted over the last few years; these scams will continue and you should be aware of them.

Things you can do to keep informed:

Improving Your Online Security

Equally, technological protection cannot protect you if you are careless with your personal information. You need to play your part in protecting your information responsibly and in accordance with our terms and conditions.

Fraud prevention and detection communication

As part of our commitment to fraud prevention and detection, our team may call, email you or SMS you to confirm a transaction.

From time to time we may send you an SMS from the Fraud Bureau to confirm card transactions. Please call the number provided in the SMS (1300 705 750). You won't be able to reply to the SMS. If you are unsure about the validity of the SMS please call 1300 65 4477 during business hours to be transferred to the Fraud Bureau.

Remember that we never ask you to disclose your PIN or personal banking details.
