Signature Bank Converts Website to Highly Secured Dot Bank Domain

Chicago-based Signature Bank transitioned its URL from a dot com ( to a dot bank domain ( to offer customers the highest level of security available to banking institutions. Only verified banks that meet robust security technologies and practices can register a dot bank website or email, thereby minimizing the ability of fraudsters and cybercriminals to engage in spoofing or phishing attacks.

“At Signature Bank, we are on the front lines of fighting fraud for our customers,” said Anne Doligale, Senior Vice President of Treasury Management at Signature Bank. “With the uptick in email and website spoofing, our dot bank domain goes a step further in protecting our customers from cyber threats and fraud attempts.”

Mandatory verification, email authentication, strong encryption, and website integrity are the key business values of the dot bank domain. This extra layer of security and higher level of verification is largely the reason banks are making the transition.

“The dot bank domain is a real differentiator for Signature Bank,” said Signature Bank President and CEO Michael G. “Mick” O’Rourke. “The banking landscape in Chicago is competitive and this really sets Signature apart as a bank who has zero tolerance for fraud.”

Signature Bank has long been at the forefront of using technology to improve and protect its customer experience. The institution is one of the first Chicago-based banks to make the transition to the higher security domain. Visit to learn more.
