CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. -- November 1, 2013

FSGBank, N.A., the wholly-owned subsidiary of First Security Group, Inc.
(NASDAQ: FSGI), (“FSG” or “FSGBank”) announced today the launch of an all new
mobile banking app optimized specifically for the tablet, including iPad and
Android devices, to improve accessibility for account holders. FSGBank is a
community bank servicing Tennessee and North Georgia. FSG’s free mobile
banking app complements the bank's online, text, and phone banking offerings
and is the first step in a growing trend to offer more end-to-end products and
services through the mobile channel. The new app allows customers to:

  *Check balances
  *Locate branches and ATM locations
  *Pay bills
  *Transfer funds between accounts

“We see the tablet as an everyday device for our business customers so it made
sense to create the best user experience for an iPad or Android tablet and
have it scale to a smartphone," said Mike Kramer, CEO of FSGBank. “The
finished product works well on both devices, which is significant as we
continue to see a shift in customer preference from traditional branch and
PC-based banking. More than 20% of our website traffic is coming from tablet
and smartphone devices over the last 12 months. The new app will make it even
easier for the everyday user to access their accounts at their convenience.”

The next phase of development for FSG will integrate new retail and business
services, providing employers and their employees with a full-service mobile
channel. Through FSG’s close partnership with Q2, the leading provider of
enterprise solutions for secure virtual banking, FSG is taking steps to
compete with the national banks and in most cases, surpass local competitors
in the region.

“We are thrilled to help FSG along the path to growth with our Q2mobility
Apps, which help them deliver superior customer service anytime, anywhere
their account holders choose,” said Matt Flake, CEO of Q2. “FSG has a strong
brand and continues to demonstrate its desire to lead the financial
institutions of Georgia and Tennessee with the addition of mobile banking."
