Online Security is a priority at Itaú Private Bank. We are committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of the information of clients. We use a combination of advanced technology and methods to help ensure that the online sessions of clients are secure.
Internet Security Measures: Any personal information submitted by clients is encrypted. This technology, called Secure Socket Layer (SSL), protects information submitted or received by clients through this website. Additionally, any confidential personal information submitted by clients to our website is held in a secure environment, and generally protected by tools such as firewalls and/or database field encryption. However, no representation is made regarding the unconditional security of such submissions.
Protect Yourself from Fraudulent Websites: Personal information shared over the Internet can be used to commit fraud. A common method is for thieves to create a website using a name similar to that of a reputable business, for instance by using a misspelling of the company's name. The intent is to lure the individual into clicking on a fake website, and providing personal information, including account number and password. We caution you to know with whom you are dealing over the Internet and to understand how your personal information will be handled. Always check whether you have typed the correct website address before entering any personal information.
Browsers Approved by Itaú Private Bank: The online security standards of Itaú Private Bank are among the most strict standards in the industry. To access our secure applications, Itaú Private Bank requires that browsers used by clients support SSL, and do not allow information to be stored on the clients’ hard drives, unless these clients take action to specifically download such information and save it on their computers.
Firewall: Itaú Private Bank uses firewalls to help limit the entry of individuals without proper authorization. A firewall is a security device that regulates the data going in and out of a network. It is a commonly used specialized computer, which acts as a shield against data going in or out of a network. It seeks assurance that communications occur only between approved individuals, and that any communication is in its proper protocol. For added security, Itaú Private Bank uses multiple firewalls to help in its best efforts of avoiding malicious types of intrusion, at all applicable levels.
Constant Surveillance: Itaú Private Bank's security systems regularly monitor its web server to help ensure that information of clients are secure. Itaú Private Bank is not responsible for the content of third-party websites hyperlinked from this page, nor does it guarantee the products or services offered by third-party websites. Clients should review the privacy statement of any website before providing any personal or confidential information.
