Website Security

At Advia Credit Union, keeping your information safe is very important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer Security (SSL) to make sure that when you share sensitive details online, only the person you're sending them to can see them.

Please Note: while SSL encryption is great for online transactions, emails are still risky. So, it's best not to send personal information through email to Advia. Email doesn't have the same level of protection as SSL. Instead, use the secure channels we offer for sharing sensitive information. This way, your data stays safe and private.

Secure Sockets Layer

Transmitting sensitive information across the internet has always been a security concern. Before financial institutions could make online services available, infrastructure was carefully designed to keep data safe while it was transmitted from a personal computer to an institution’s server.

A pivotal new development called Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology later emerged as the industry standard for securing data while it travels across the internet. SSL is like a lock that keeps your information safe when you're on websites, like credit unions, banks, or online stores. It helps make sure that your details are kept confidential, can't be tampered with, and confirms who you're dealing with.

The three most important services SSL provides

SSL keeps your information confidential through the encryption or scrambling process.

When an SSL certificate is used, the information becomes unreadable to everyone except for the server you are sending the information to. This is important because the information you send on the internet is passed from computer to computer to get to the destination server.

Advia Credit Union has been issued certified secure certificates from Go Daddy Secure Certificate Authority to communicate with you, the member, with SSL technology. Digital certificates act as a digital ID that users or computers are authentic. These certificates are utilized to add security to our Digital Banking and our online applications.
