  • Secure bank statements when not in use.
  • Implement ACH Debit Blocking on accounts that should never receive electronic debits.
  • Implement Reverse Positive Pay on accounts that should never issue checks.
  • Use safety features on your check stock and store blank checks in a secure place when not in use.
  • Secure cancelled check stock, including images of cancelled checks, and destroy remotely deposited checks within 14 days of deposit.
