  • Never share your login credentials/passwords.
  • Business Online Users are encouraged to download Trusteer Rapport. Trusteer Rapport is a free software offered by Republic Bank that scans for malware and creates a secure ‘tunnel’ connection to our website (clients can add additional websites at no charge).
  • Maintain an up-to-date antivirus software.
  • Avoid using public Wi-Fi or a Wi-Fi that is not password protected.
  • Never send sensitive information (account #s, Tax IDs, etc.) via e-mail. You can initiate a secure message to Republic Bank from within Business Online Banking by navigating to the “Messages”  menu option.
  • Never click on a hyperlink within an e-mail from an unknown source.
  • Protect all accounting documents by locking away check stock, invoices and critical account information.
  • Beware of “phishing” emails asking for personal information.  Legitimate sources will not e-mail clients asking them to ‘verify’ information or otherwise divulge personal data.
  • Let the bank know when a user should be removed from our Business Online Banking system
  • If possible, use dual control & segregation of duties when utilizing Business Online Banking.
  • Reconcile and monitor account activity frequently. Examine bank statements punctually and report any abnormalities to your Financial Institution.
  • Pay attention to your Last Login date/time on Business Online Banking. Let the bank know if the date is different than the user access.
