How LCSB Protects You

Lyon County State Bank will never send an email message requesting confidential information such as account numbers, passwords, or PINs. If you should ever receive such a request, contact Lyon County State Bank at 620-342-3523 immediately.

With the proper safety measures in place, your Lyon County State Bank online transactions remain confidential and safe. The following measures have been taken to ensure your privacy:

Secure Access and Verifying User Authenticity

Lyon County State Bank’s Online Banking and bill pay services utilize unique ID’s, passwords, challenge questions and access codes.

Account “Pseudo” or Display Names

Lyon County State Bank does not display your account numbers over the Internet. Instead, we allow you to choose a “pseudo name,” or display name, for each of your accounts. For example: Home Checking, Judy’s Savings, etc.

Automatic Log Off

If you are logged into Lyon County State Bank’s Online Banking and inactive for 10 minutes the system will automatically log you off.

Password Lockout System

To keep unauthorized individuals from accessing your account by guessing your password, we have instituted a password lockout system. If your password is entered incorrectly three consecutive times, the user is “locked out” of online banking.

Secure Data Transfer

The latest encryption technology helps ensure that another party cannot access your confidential account information. Encryption is a way to rewrite something in code, which can be decoded later with the right “key”. When you request information about your accounts, the information is sent across the web in an encrypted format to our processor. It then decodes your request and sends the requested information back to you in an encrypted format. When the information reaches you, it is decoded so that you and no one else can read it.

Router and Firewall

In addition to the above safeguards, sophisticated firewalls and an authentication process ensure that only authorized individuals are allowed to enter our system.

Protect Your Internet Security
