In April 2015, the PCI Security Standards Council released the v3.1 update to the PCI DSS standard. This standard update excludes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) 3.0, TLS 1.0, and some ciphers supported by TLS 1.1 from protocols supporting strong cryptography. This means the Council wants us to discontinue support for those protocols or ciphers, ensuring your ongoing security.
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that ensures privacy between communicating applications and their users on the Internet. When a server and client communicate, TLS ensures that no third party may eavesdrop or tamper with any message.
Currently, only the following minimum versions of browsers support TLS 1.2.
To ensure you can access Digital Banking you must use the following supported browsers/devices below. Devices/browsers older than the versions below are no longer supported and vulnerable to security exploits and cannot be supported by our applications.

You may have heard these before, but we think it’s better to be safe than swindled.
