Local banks target identity theft and fraud through new software


More people are banking online, and now one tri-state bank is helping to protect its customers from identity theft.

Lee County Bank and Trust in Fort Madison is now offering its customers free, downloadable security software.

Officials at the bank say this kind of protection is necessary because of the advancements of online predators.

"Hackers have become very sophisticated and banks are faced with increased challenges, creating a secure online environment.  Trusteer Rapport helps us meet these needs by protecting our customers from online fraud and identity theft," said Carla Meierotta. 

Rapport is offered for free to customers of hundreds of banking, brokerage, and retail websites.
