Online Security at Hilliard Lyons
How is my money and information protected online?
Hilliard Lyons’ uses sophisticated systems that constantly monitor the network to prevent unauthorized individuals and programs from entering the network and computer systems and thus, your personal information. These systems include Intrusion Detection/Prevention Systems and programs that look for viruses and malware. These systems and programs are constantly updated with new signatures (identifiers) of threats that have been introduced throughout the world. We also monitor our file servers and workstations to insure that threats are not introduced at the end point. Again, these programs are constantly updated with new signatures as they are identified. All this provides for a highly secure, uncompromised environment.
To eliminate the risk to our clients we do not allow direct buying and selling of securities from the web site. All trades must be initiated by the client with their Wealth Advisor who knows the client and has the best interests of their clients at heart. The Hilliard Lyons Online is more of an ‘information only’ environment that allows access to such things as holdings, balances, current and past statements, and other information that allows client to become knowledgeable about their account. While the information available on our site is extremely confidential and receives our full attention from a security standpoint, it is not of much importance to an individual intent on committing fraudulent transactions. The Hilliard Lyons website does allow clients to request a transfer of funds from their account to an account at another institution, but only after the proper paperwork is completed beforehand through the client’s Wealth Advisor. These requests for transfers are reviewed for accuracy before being executed. This is in stark contrast to the way transactions occur within the banking community.
By combining leading edge technologies and commonsense approaches to security, the online information of Hilliard Lyons’ clients is well protected.
Security is a priority at Hilliard Lyons. We are committed to protecting the security and confidentiality of customer information. We use a combination of state-of-the-art technology and methods to help to protect the security of your online session.
