Take action to protect yourself.
While Piedmont Federal is working diligently to protect your information, keep in mind that it is important for you to take precautions to safeguard personal information on your end.
Go Paperless. Reduce the risk of mail fraud by switching to eStatements, accessible securely through Online Banking.
Create Unique Passwords. Create a unique password that is not related to any personal information about you and whenever possible, has a combination of letters, numbers and symbols. You can use paraphrases as well, which may be easier to remember and harder for criminals to crack. Use different passwords for each of your electronic accounts and change your passwords on a regular basis, even if not prompted to.
Secure Your Personal Information. Before disclosing any personal information, first know why it is required and how it will be used. Do not give out information to people or companies you do not know. When in doubt about any communication you receive claiming to be from Piedmont Federal, contact us at 336.770.1000. Always shred documents containing sensitive, personal information, such as bank or credit card statements, before discarding.
