e-Norvik deploys all modern tools for protecting of information:

  • A unique table of identification codes along with a user password or a DigiPass device is used to authorise an Internet banking system user.
  • The communication channel with the bank is protected by encryption with modern algorithms of the protocol SSL – AES 256 bit.
  • Use of SSL protocol ensures that a user is working in the e-Norvik system owned by Norvik Banka in particular. In order to do it, it is necessary to open a page certificate (click on the “padlock” icon located at the bottom, in the browser) and make sure that the address indicated in the certificate is an e-Norvik system:; that the certificate is issued to AS "NORVIK BANKA" by the company “Thawte, Inc”.
  • The existing system of limits and delimitation of powers allows limiting amount of transfers of a user and to limit Access of a user to specific transactions and accounts.
  • After 5 unsuccessful attempts to identify in the system, the Access for a user is automatically blocked.
  • A time of inactive session is limited. This means if during a specific period of time a user did not perform any actions in e-Norvik the system will automatically terminate the session.
  • We also use hardware and software means of network protection (Firewalls) to prevent unauthorised access.
