Find out how to stay secure

Your security is our paramount concern. Our BusinessOnline service has been designed to provide security that is among the best in the market place.

Access is restricted to registered users and controlled by a comprehensive layered security infrastructure. Our servers employ the maximum level of protection for your account information, using 128-bit SSL encryption.

Our security system has been vetted and approved by external security consultants.

Our security infrastructure includes the use of multiple firewalls, complemented by an intrusion detection system that alerts our security teams to any attempted security breaches.

This small device supplied as part of BusinessOnline adds an extra layer of security to protect you and your company when using the service. The Security Device is used at login, when contacting the helpdesk and completing certain transactions.

Security certificates

Our BusinessOnline service uses 'certificates' to initiate encryption of all communication between you and the Bank and to help ensure the confidentiality of your information. After launching Internet Banking's login screen, you should do the following:

Ensure SSL encryption security is in place, and only accept a valid security certificate. Security certificates for BusinessOnline are issued by VeriSign.

To check these for your operating system and browser, follow the instructions below:

  • Position your mouse pointer over the padlock symbol displayed in the bottom status bar. A text box will display 'SSL 128bit'
  • Double click on the padlock to view the security certificate. A valid certificate will be issued to either 'home1.cybusinessonline.co.uk' or 'home2.cybusinessonline.co.uk' and today's date should be within the valid date range
