Trust Bank Internet Banking Security
Website is closed, sorry!
On Friday, February 4, 2011, American Trust Bank, Roswell, GA was closed by the Georgia Department of Banking and Finance, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) was named Receiver. No advance notice is given to the public when a financial institution is closed.
The FDIC has assembled useful information regarding your relationship with this institution. Besides a checking account, you may have Certificates of Deposit, a car loan, a business checking account, a commercial loan, a Social Security direct deposit, and other relationships with the institution. The FDIC has compiled the following information, which should answer many of your questions.

transactions are absolutely safe. American Trust Bank works with cutting-edge
technology partners to ensure that the most secure environment is made
possible for our valued customers. We offer you worry-free Internet banking.
You can be completely confident of the following security measures:
Our system ensures that data-exchanged between your PC and our computer
is encrypted with 128-bit encryption - the strongest encryption available.
Encryption is accomplished through Secure Sockets Layers (SSL), which
utilizes mathematical formulas to 'encrypt' or hide information from prying
eyes on the Internet. Additionally, if SSL detects that data was added
or deleted after you sent it to the bank, the connection will be severed
in order to guard against any tampering. The most popular browsers have
the SSL security feature included. How can you tell if your browser is

Our computer system does not connect directly to the Internet. It is isolated
from the network via a 'firewall.' A firewall is a combination of software
and hardware products that designate parameters, and control and limit
the access that outside computers have to the banks' internal networks
and databases. You can feel secure knowing that our firewall protects
your personal information from unauthorized access.
User IDs and passwords are isolated from the Internet by being stored
on American Trust Bank's computer. This way, the passwords and IDs can
never be assessed or downloaded by anyone on the Internet. Additionally,
user passwords can vary from eight to twelve characters, which means the
chance of randomly guessing a password is less than one in one billion!
The system also checks for invalid logins and automatically disallows
a user after three invalid attempts. This prohibits the 'hacker' from
gaining access to our system, thus protecting your accounts.
You will be responsible for maintaining one of the most important security
measures: your password. When you receive your American Trust Bank online
banking password, be sure to keep it a secret. Memorize it, or write it
down and keep it in a safe place. It is not recommended you carry your
password in your purse or wallet. Make sure no one watches you enter your
password and always close your browser when leaving the computer. Make
sure you regularly scan your computer for viruses that could be used to
capture password keystrokes. You ultimately hold the key to your password
