How Citywide Banks Helps Protect Your Information
Citywide Banks is committed to work as a team with our clients to counter evolving threats. Here are just a few of the ways we work to strengthen security:
CUSTOMER IDENTIFICATION PROGRAM (CIP) NOTICE
To help the government fight the funding of terrorism and money laundering activities, Federal law requires all banks to obtain, verify and record information that identifies each person who opens an account.
What does this mean for you?
When you open an account, we will ask for your name, address, date of birth, and other information that will allow us to identify you. We will also ask to see your driver's license or other identifying documents.
Citywide Banks follows this law by obtaining identifying information, including a valid form of picture identification, and verifying the information you provide. Identification will be requested from existing customers because original documentation may not have been obtained when the account was originally opened. In all cases, protection of our customer's identity and confidentiality is our pledge to you.

Banking Tools to Strengthen Fraud Protection

Security ID Token (Virtual)
As an extra level of online banking security, Citywide Banks provides Treasury Management clients with virtual security tokens. Using their mobile device or desktop PC, clients download a randomly regenerated six-digit code and input it as part of their online banking log-in credentials.
Trusteer Rapport provides an extra layer of protection against cyber thieves targeting ACH, wire transfer, and online banking users. The product consists of a software application that is installed on any device you use to access your Citywide Banks account (e.g. desktop PC, tablet).
