TCI Rigorously Protects Confidential Information
Trust Company of Illinois uses the most stringent policies and procedures to protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of client information under our control. Every TCI employee undergoes a background check before hire and signs a confidentiality agreement, as well as a code of ethical business conduct, upon joining our firm. All employees receive annual security awareness training.
The Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation examines TCI information technology policies and procedures on a bi-annual basis. In addition, TCI hires an independent information security firm to review our overall network system and security and to perform internal and external penetration testing.
Current technology provides protection using firewalls, network monitoring, anti-virus software and patch maintenance. TCI’s server room is locked, accessed only by authorized personnel. Best practices in disaster recovery are followed with offsite replication of critical data as well as secure storage of historical data.
TCI’s client access portal provides encrypted communication and secure identification. Client access is protected with unique ID passwords, security questions and visual cues.
