How We Keep You Protected
Visions is committed to managing your information security for all of the services we offer to you on the Internet, over the phone, or in our branches. Our dedicated information technology professionals ensure your data is protected on multiple levels through:
- Data encryption
- Password protection
- Data network infrastructure
- Physical safeguards
- Independent data network testing and certification
Data EncryptionAll member data is encrypted as it travels through our network so you can rest assured your vital personal information is safe. We use the strongest encryption techniques recognized by the financial industry and federal regulators.
When logged in, you can verify your data is safe by looking for the small lock icon in your web browser's address bar. This indicates you are using an encrypted connection.
Password ProtectionYour passwords are stored in an encrypted format and no one, including Visions employees, has access to them. And we will never ask you for them.
Data Network InfrastructureVisions maintains internal security devices to ensure that no unauthorized users can access confidential member information at any time. By using network based anti-virus, firewall, and intrusion prevention systems, we ensure that your data is safe.
Visions restricts physical access to computer servers to those personnel who require access as part of their jobs. We also use industry standard dual-control methods when handling sensitive information so we can ensure it is secure at all times.
Independent data network testing and certificationVisions security infrastructure is regularly audited and inspected by external firms that specialize in security processes and technologies. Visions has relationships with third-party monitoring firms that will immediately alert our staff if they should see any suspicious activity trying to penetrate our network defenses.
