What we do to protect you
Here’s what we do to help keep you safe
We use robust security methods, such as the very latest encryption, fraud prevention and anti-phishing technology, to prevent unauthorised users reading your personal information when you’re on our website. And we protect your login sessions by automatically logging out for you if you’re inactive. In fact, there’s lots of things that we do to help keep you safe.
We’re Cyber Essentials Plus accredited
Cyber Essentials is a Government-backed scheme that has awarded us Cyber Essentials Plus accreditation. To achieve this standard, independent experts have verified the controls the bank uses to protect against internet-based threats. This is just one of the many measures we use to keep your information safe.

What you can expect from us
Fraudsters will often pretend to be contacting you from a bank. As such, they’ll ask you for personal information so that they can attempt to access your account, but here’s a list of things that Secure Trust Bank staff will never ask you.
We will never…
- ask you to share your Internet Banking password
- ask you to tell us your PIN in full
- email you with a link to a web page that asks you for your Internet Banking details
- ask you to send an email to us with your PIN or password information
- ask you to put money into a new account that you don’t know about, nor ask you to carry out a ‘test’ transaction
- contact you from an email address in an individual’s name asking you to send or receive money
- speak to unauthorised third parties about your account
There are high standards that we maintain and you can be assured that we will:
- use correct spelling and grammar (fraudsters often make errors)
- address you in emails and letters by your title and surname
- be happy to speak with you if you’ve received something from Secure Trust Bank that just doesn’t feel right. Call us on 0345 111 7092 to speak to our team
