Online Banking Security
Community West Bank is committed to providing you with a private and secure Internet banking environment. We use sophisticated security technologies to ensure that all data transmitted are secure.
Any time you provide personal information (such as account number, password, transfer requests, etc.), we encrypt the data using SHA-256 Secure Hash Algorithm technology. To support this technology, you need to have a supported browser, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer 8 or later. Secure Hash Algorithm will activate automatically when you sign on to your account(s). We do not recommend use of any beta versions browsers.
Customers must treat their Community West Bank AccessWest™ user ID and password with the same care that they treat their ATM or credit card PIN. In addition, an AccessWest™ user must make sure that no one is physically watching as his or her password is entered. If a user has logged onto AccessWest™, the user should exit the browser when leaving the computer unattended. Users should also take the standard precautions to keep computers clean and free from viruses that could be used to capture password keystrokes.
Community West Bank views security as something that must be constantly maintained. New advances in security technology occur frequently, and Community West Bank is constantly enhancing its security architecture to ensure that it provides the highest level of privacy and safety available to its customers.
