Commit your Personal Identification Numbers (PIN) to memory, as well as passwords for your cards and accounts, rather than write them down. Set reminders to change your passwords every six months. If you must write them down, store them in a secure place, like a safe.

Separate your business and personal accounts, including your debit cards, credit cards, and checking accounts.

Maintaining separate accounts also makes it easier to track your business and personal expenses, and to file your taxes.
Following these six simple steps can give you peace of mind that you have taken steps to help your business debit cards, credit cards, and other accounts be secure so you can focus on running your business.
