Why Secure email?
By itself, Internet email is an insecure communication tool. Messages sent via standard Internet email travel in “plain text,” crossing many networks before reaching their final destination. As a result, the opportunity exists for prying eyes to eavesdrop on email messages as they pass through these various networks. In this environment, your confidentiality cannot be guaranteed.
Because Martha’s Vineyard Savings Bank knows that all sensitive or private information (such as social security numbers, bank account numbers, financial statements, etc.) should never be sent in this insecure manner, we want to provide our customers with the best way to correspond with us about your personal finances and banking interests.
