In today’s world, there are countless ways to make payments and purchases, and each comes with its own set of financial security risks. It often sparks questions as to a bank’s role in helping secure your finances.
At Bankers Trust, we believe security comes down to the difference between hoping and trusting. Sure, hope is a good thing. But when it comes to banking, you want to do more than hope your finances will be safe. You want to trust that your bank is as committed to your financial security as it is to the communities it serves and the relationships it has earned. In fact, earning your trust by providing the confidence that your accounts are secure is something Bankers Trust has done for more than 100 years, and it’s the difference you can count on every day.
Bankers Trust Security Resources
We offer a variety of security resources that help secure your accounts and enable you to practice safe financial habits in your daily life.
Trusteer Rapport is a security software that protects Internet Banking communications against criminals who steal money from bank accounts by obtaining login information or other data from the personal computers of customers. Better yet – it comes at absolutely no cost to you.
Bankers Trust has extensive security systems in place to make sure that Internet Banking is secure, but criminals sometimes target the individual computers that people use to do their banking from their home or business. Rapport protects personal computers from criminal attacks by creating a kind of secure communications tunnel between your computer and the bank.

In an effort to help prevent terrorist funding and money laundering, section 326 of the U.S. Patriot Act requires we obtain and verify the identification of all our customers. It isn’t that we don’t know who you are, but rather we are required to confirm your identity and maintain records of all verifications. For this reason, we require two forms of identification to open an account. Acceptable forms of identification include government-issued photo ID, or other forms of documentation bearing your signature and/or photo. Even if you are already a customer, we may ask for information such as your name, address, date of birth, and other information to confirm your identification.
