Be secure

Cyber security is like a sturdy vault for your online details. For members of our credit union, it’s key to keeping your personal and financial information under lock and key. With hackers becoming more clever and trying to crack into systems more often, strong cyber security stops them in their tracks. It’s not just for your home computers—it’s vital for protecting our credit union community.

Just as we guard your money, cyber security guards your data, keeping your online banking safe and sound. It’s our promise to you: robust cyber security for your peace of mind.

You can help keep yourself safe by not clicking on email or text links from unknown senders. If the sender seems legit but the message doesn’t, it’s possible the email or text has been manipulated. When in doubt, call the person or company directly to ask about the message. Glacier Hills will never call, message or email you asking for your banking details.
