Security Information

Malayan Banking Berhad (hereinafter referred to as "Maybank") is highly committed to ensuring that all transactions performed through (hereinafter referred to as "") are secure, safe and confidential. This section explains our related security arrangements, privacy policy and client charter.




We shall at all times and to the best of our ability, endeavour to ensure that all materials, data, communications and/or information exchanged, disclosed, shared, stored or otherwise used ("Information"), or any transactions which are made via Maybank2E ("Transactions") are kept private and confidential. Further thereto, we shall comply with and adhere to the requirements of Bank Negara Malaysia pertaining to the privacy and confidentiality of the Information and Transactions as well as the need to maintain the security and integrity of Maybank2E. In pursuance of these objectives, we have set in place a multitude of security procedures and requirements which are designed to ensure the optimum security of the Information, Transactions and Maybank2E at all times, all of which are elaborated upon below.

Data Privacy, Confidentiality & Integrity

In order to ensure the privacy, confidentiality and integrity of the Information and Transactions transmitted or made via Maybank2E, we have engaged the use of a combination of authentication, encryption and auditing mechanisms which serve as a powerful barrier against all forms of system penetration and abuse.
These mechanisms include but are not limited to the following:-


To prevent unauthorised access to our online financial services as offered through Maybank2E, every user is required to select a username ("Username") and an alphanumeric password ("Password"), which are the Access Keys to your financial information, banking facilities and the product and services offered via Maybank2E. The Username must be between 6 to 16 characters and the Password must be between 8 to 12 characters. In both cases, special characters and spaces should not be used, with the exception of underscore.

The Username and Password are case sensitive. For example, if your Password is "maybank2e" and you key in "maybank2e", you will not be able to login (the "e" must be lowercase).

To ensure the integrity of these Access Keys, you are advised to maintain its confidentiality by not sharing it or making it accessible to any other person and to take all reasonable endeavours to maintain its security which may include, memorising the Access Keys, changing your Password regularly and signing off before visiting any other Internet sites.

In addition, users who are acting as authorisers are required to use digital certificates for the purposes of ascertaining and authenticating their identity before a transaction is approved.

Information Protection

We take considerable effort to ensure a safe and secure online experience, but we do not have control over the computer you use to access Maybank2E. We have incorporated the usage of cookies for authenticating, tracking, and maintaining specific information about user(s). As an added security feature, an automatic log out function if no activity is detected after a preset time limit.

However, you must ensure that your computer and you do not provide anyone opportunity to gain access to your account information. The following are several tips and guidelines that may assist you:

For example: To turn AutoComplete "On" or "Off" in MS Internet Explorer browser:

  1. is requested or authorised by you or any other persons purporting to be you upon the satisfactory verification of identity by us in accordance with our prevailing procedure;
  2. Click "Internet Options" to get the "Content" tab.
  3. From this tab, click the "AutoComplete" button.
  4. Uncheck "Usernames and Passwords on forms".

Data Confidentiality and Data Integrity

To ensure data confidentiality and integrity, all information transmitted over the Internet is encrypted using the 128-bit Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol from Verisign Certificate Authority. SSL is a secure way of transferring information between two computers on the Internet using encryption. Strong end-to-end encryption is also adopted within our computer networks and resources.

Systems Security and Monitoring

Maybank has adopted a combination of the following systems security and monitoring measures for online transactions:

In addition to the measures adopted by us, we would recommend that you consider installing a personal firewall or, at a minimum, power-off your PC when it is not in use.

We also take every effort in ensuring collaboration with major vendors/manufacturers to keep abreast of information security technology developments, for possible and future implementation.  

Computer Virus Protection

Computer viruses are real and once your computer is infected it can cost you time, loss of information, repair expense, and aggravation. Make sure your computer has an anti-virus protection program installed to reduce the risk.

We recommend that you purchase a program that automatically upgrades your virus protection on a recurring basis. If you currently have a virus protection program on your computer without the automatic upgrade feature, make sure you update your virus protection program at least monthly and/or when you hear of a new virus to minimize your risk. You can do this by visiting the Internet site of the company that provides your virus protection program.

In addition, we would advise against opening attachments from others or using diskettes unless you have absolute certainty that you can trust the source. Notwithstanding, we would advise that you still remain cautious as whoever sent you that attachment or gave you the diskette may themselves be unaware that they have carried the virus to you.


Further to the rest of this Security Arrangement and for the purposes of clarification, any and all Transactions which are initiated by or originate from the Customer's Access Keys (which shall be taken to include the Access Keys of the Customer's duly appointed users) shall be deemed to have been initiated or originated from the said Customer and accordingly, we shall be entitled to carry out the said Transactions as if we had been duly instructed to do so by the respective Customer.

We also maintain and constantly update the logs of the Transactions which record, among others, the Transactions entered into by our Customers (including you) and the nature, time and date of the same, all of which serves to enable us to verify the various Transactions made and act as evidence thereof should there ever arise a dispute as to the same.

Access Control & System Design

Maybank2E is designed and developed with the primary and utmost intention of safeguarding the security and integrity of all Information and Transactions at all times. Pursuant thereto, Maybank2E deploys a wide range of security features all of which are constantly reviewed and audited to determine their effectiveness and further updated and maintained to ensure that these security features perform at optimum standards at all times.

We also adopt a variety of monitoring and review measures upon the security and integrity of Maybank2E, which include but are not limited to:

  1. Enhanced data-encryption methods;
  2. Anti-virus detection, prevention and protection procedures; 
  3. Firewall barriers; and
  4. Surveillance and detection,

all of which are designed and implemented to intercept and prevent any form of attack on, penetration of or otherwise unauthorised access into Maybank2E and to ensure that the critical sectors of Maybank2E including the storage of the Information, the Information itself and the processing and authentication of the Transactions are, at all times, kept free from such attack, penetration or unauthorised access ("System Security Monitors").

We shall also endeavour to conduct regular and thorough reviews or audits of our System Security Monitors, both by our internal security auditors as well as by external security experts. These reviews and audits may include but are not limited to actual penetration testing and intrusion detection on our said System Security Monitors which will enable us to determine whether there are any defects, faults, malfunctions or shortcomings (the "said defects") in the same. In the event the said defects or otherwise a breach of Maybank2E is discovered, we shall in the case of a security breach, promptly report the same to the appropriate management and Bank Negara Malaysia and immediately proceed to rectify or remedy the same. For this purpose, we may be required to temporarily or indefinitely suspend all use of Maybank2E until such time when the said defects are rectified or remedied without any notice and without any liability whatsoever to you.

While we have the capabilities to ensure that the privacy, confidentiality and integrity of the Information, the Transactions as well as the security and integrity of Maybank2E itself are at all times, safeguarded, maintained and secure, we shall from time to time collaborate efforts with other major hardware, equipment or software vendors and manufacturers in an effort to keep abreast with the developments and improvements made to the same. Accordingly, where we believe that such developments and improvements would serve to provide enhanced security to the Information, Transactions and above, we shall not hesitate to implement the same for our joint-benefit.
