Security Policy

At AIB Group (UK) p.l.c. we understand how important the security and confidentiality of your information is to you. Our aim is to protect your information on the internet in the same way as we would through our other banking channels such as over the phone, in a branch or at a Cash Machine.

 

To ensure the highest level of security of information passing between our customers and the Bank, we use what is known as 128 bit SSL. This is an encryption method that scrambles information while it is moving from one source to another to prevent the information being viewed or tampered with.
