6. Strengthen your online fraud protection to keep your banking secure

Your security is a key priority and IBM® Security Trusteer RapportTM adds an additional layer of protection to your existing anti-virus software, at no cost to you.

It's designed to protect you against:

  • Malware – malicious software that targets your personal identity and account credentials. When your computer is infected with malware, criminals attempt to bypass banking security measures – often resulting in identity and financial loss.
  • Phishing – fraudulent emails or websites, which often pose as an organisation you know and trust, thus attempting to get your personal information.
