Keeping your accounts safe and secure

Your Security

The digital revolution brings us many fantastic new technologies that make our lives easier, from communication, access to information, apps to help us keep fit and features to make your banking easier. Unfortunately in the digital world there are also unscrupulous criminals out there trying to steal your private and personal information as well as your hard earned savings.

At Holiday Coast we are dedicated to ensuring that your money and personal information are safe and secure.

Here are just a few things that we do to keep it that way.

  • Your funds are protected by the Australian Government’s Deposit Guarantee. Find out more on 'understanding the government guarantee on deposits'.
  • Our IT systems include multiple layers of security and the highest standards of encryption to keep your information secure.
  • Our team is trained to ensure that we only talk to, or take instructions about your accounts, from you.
  • We provide a 24/7 monitoring service to allow us to react quickly to any suspicious activity on your account.
  • You are protected by our Zero Liability guarantee for fraudulent transactions on your account.1
  • We will never send you an email requesting such information as your internet banking passwords and / or card details (including PIN, CVV and expiry date). DO NOT follow or click on links in such emails or requests to provide such information to persons purporting to be staff of Holiday Coast Credit Union. If you receive any such email or request, delete the message immediately.

Criminals know just how much effort financial institutions put into keeping their customers money and information secure so they will often resort to other methods to try and steal this information directly from you. To fight against this we need to consider fraud prevention and security as a joint effort.

Here are a few helpful hints and tips to help protect yourself against fraud.
