Following the security breach at another financial institution publicized recently in the media, we want to reassure you about the protection of your personal information at Professionals’ Financial. The security of your data is an ongoing priority and we are acutely aware of the repercussions that a breach of this kind could have on our clients.
At the Financial, we have put in place a highly secure environment to protect your confidential data against possible cyber intrusions and we exercise constant vigilance over the activity in our accounts.
By data theft, we mean your name, social insurance number, date of birth, street address, email address, driver’s licence. This information can be used by fraudsters to conduct criminal activities.
In the current situation, we urge you to be extra cautious with all your transactions (bank and investment accounts, credit cards). Immediately report to your financial institution any irregularity or any transaction that appears suspicious to you and take the necessary steps to protect your data (change your passwords, increase the security level of your mailbox).
