If you’re a business owner you’ll know how vital it is to consistantly strive to keep your company secure – whether it’s from internal risks like employee shrinkage or external threats like burglary. With that in mind, there’s more to being secure than simply bolting the door and hoping that people won’t work out where your weakness lies. Now more than ever, the threat to your business is multi-faceted and you need to be on the front foot when it comes to keeping your business safe. To ensure that you are protecting your company you need to be sure that you’re investing in and implementing best practice. Here are the most important things we feel you should cross off your security list first:
ONE: Get good quality CCTV on your property
There’s a huge amount to be said for the deterrent properties of installing CCTV for your business. Plus, if you combine a strong surveillance camera presence with additional services like security patrols and on-site guards, it will help to deter people from considering your property as a potential target. If would-be thieves do choose to ignore your security system they will do so at their own risk – your surveillance footage will be perfect for identifying them to police.
TWO: Install the right kind of security fencing for your property
Part of keeping your property safe and secure is having the right kind of fencing to keep the wrong people out, and the right people in and secure from threats. Appropriate fencing will work to deter potential intruders and will help to keep people safe, and when used in conjunction with your security system, you will observe the creation of a formidable team.
THREE: Keep valuable items secure in a safe
This might seem like a bit of a no-brainer, but you need to ensure that you keep your valuables secure. The right kind of safe or locker is essential, however it must meet the needs of your insurance provider – how and where it’s installed can play a role in the reimbursement for a potential claim. Be sure to contact your insurance provider before you are caught on the back foot.
FOUR: Use a firewall in your business
The threats to your business aren’t just going to come from the physical world – they’ll also exist online. You need to ensure that you are keeping your online property safe and that you protect your data. Speak to your IT provider about this and ensure that it’s a well-established component of your overarching security system.
FIVE: Use an alarm system
A good system that works on motion sensors, or whatever is appropriate for your business, will help to keep your company secure.
