While everyone should be cautious about security when using the internet and no one can guarantee absolute security, protecting your personal information is of the utmost importance to Millennium Trust.
Here is what Millennium Trust does to protect your information when accessing your account online:
1. Secure Communications
Our system is designed so that data will be encrypted as it travels to and from your PC. Encryption turns meaningful words and phrases into coded language. Everything you do during your Millennium Trust’s web access sessions is encrypted using 128-bit encryption, making your account information read as gibberish to everyone but you and Millennium Trust. 128-bit encryption means there are 2128 possible keys that could fit into the lock that holds your account information, but only one that actually works for each session. Encryption is accomplished through Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), which has become one of the de facto standards for data encryption on the Internet. This makes it difficult for your sensitive financial information to be deciphered by unauthorized individuals. SSL allows users to establish sessions with Internet sites that are secure, meaning there is minimal risk of external violation.
2. Secure Login
For security, an ID and password must be entered to access the website and your account. Additionally, the password you enter displays as asterisks so that no one else can see it. An account lockout condition has been set to prevent unauthorized access. After multiple failed attempts to access your account, access will be restricted and you will have to contact us. Millennium Trust employees do not know your password and do not need to know your password. No one from Millennium Trust will ever ask you for your password.
3. Secure Environment
To provide additional safety, Millennium Trust’s account access does not connect directly to the Internet. It is protected by firewalls – software and hardware products that are intended to define, control, and limit the access that outside individuals have to account access. As a general rule, firewalls allow only authenticated users to send or receive transactions through the system.
Further, Millennium Trust’s account access is registered with Verisign, an industry leader in website identification and encryption. Via your browser, Verisign allows you to confirm this website provider’s identity before transmitting any personal information.
4. Automated Time-Out
To help prevent unauthorized access to your account, your session on the website will automatically end after 15 minutes of activity.
