Protecting Your Accounts is a Combined Effort
As your bank, our goal is always to make you as confident as possible in banking with us and trusting that your money is protected. Fraudsters and cybercriminals are getting more and more sophisticated in their efforts to take over accounts and access your accounts. While there are many safeguards in place on our end in regards to firewalls and bank systems, ultimately we need your help as the account holder to be diligent in ensuring your accounts look correct. We offer products such as Positive Pay and CardValet to help you monitor your daily activity to make sure nothing looks out of place and catch any suspicious activity before it hits your account. These are products that you need to actively use for them to be as effective as possible.
Positive Pay works in conjunction with Online for Business. You submit an electronic file of all the checks your business has written each day. That file is then compared to checks as they come through for payment and any inconsistencies are flagged for you to review prior to them being paid. This system has already been successful in helping many of our businesses avoid check fraud. The cost of this program is mere pennies compared to what those fraudulent checks would have cost those companies in losses.
CardValet is used with your debit card. This free app allows you to turn your debit card off when you’re not using it, or to set location parameters to ensure it’s not used where you’re not currently located. I myself use this app and have found it provides me peace of mind and more confidence in using my debit card.
Protecting your accounts is truly a combined effort between you and our bank. Please make it a priority to monitor your accounts for suspicious transactions. Mobile and online banking offer email or mobile alerts and tools such as Positive Pay and CardValet can help you help us protect your money. For questions about any of these products or to enroll, contact your local CNB office.
Keeping Your Business Running When You’re On the Move
Raddon Financial Group, a bank research firm, completed a national study of business customers regarding their use and expectations of mobile banking. According to their recent research, 58% of small businesses are currently using mobile banking and the likelihood to use it increases as the size of the small business increases. Commercial clients, especially younger ones, are looking for the convenience and 24/7 accessibility provided by mobile banking. But don’t think business mobile banking is just a replica of its retail counterpart. A true business mobile banking app should provide comprehensive banking capabilities, including alerts, payment functionality and transaction approvals, such as ACH, wires and positive pay, on the go.
Citizens National Bank has recently upgraded its Business Mobile app to include the ability to make bill payments through your phone. In addition to the ability to view all linked accounts, make internal transfers, receive mobile or email alerts and complete approvals, bill payment gives you the convenience of making payments to any of your established vendors who are already set up in Online for Business. According to Raddon, only a third of small businesses use mobile apps designed specifically for business banking – making it difficult to complete all of their business transactions when traveling. When considering mobile be sure to choose a bank, such as Citizens National Bank, that offers a truly mobile business app. Be sure to update your app often as well to take advantage of new features that are continually being added. Look for the ability to initiate ACH and Wire Transfers from your phone soon! Business mobile is a free app available in the App Store or on Google Play. Simply search for cnbohio to find it. Use your same Online for Business credentials and token to access the app. You and your employees will have the same permissions you do in Online for Business. If you’re interested in depositing checks from your phone, simply contact the bank to have that turned on.
