This is a good video about banks and your protection against debit-card fraud. Given that only 44% of banks will make you whole on your losses, it is a good idea to check with your bank to see if they are part of that 44%.
Since I have been the target of identity theft in the past, one tip I would suggest is to make use of your bank’s email notification services. For example, I get an email every morning from my bank telling me what my balance is from the previous day. When I was responsible for my late mother’s accounts, I had it set up so that I got a low balance notification and a notification for any transaction over a certain dollar amount. This last one would be very useful in providing alerts of unauthorized transactions.
