From small businesses to international corporations, your company needs a secure location to safeguard assets and staff. Discover important ways you can keep your building secure, and how building security can help keep your business operating and thriving in a competitive market.
Business Safety is Invaluable
When it comes to safety and security, there are many ways your business can be harmed. From stolen identities to compromised personal files, your business could face financial ruin through an act of vandalism or theft.
Protecting your building protects your physical property, IT property and personal wellbeing. An efficient plan for building security can also give your employees and customers peace of mind. This is true no matter which industry you are conducting business in.
Ensure Your Business is Secure
There are many ways to improve the safety of your building. Consider each of these options carefully to determine how your location might be protected from physical or cyber threats.
A great way to protect your building is through highly trained security officers. Whether you choose round-the-clock support or an on-demand response team, security officers provide knowledgeable support in a variety of situations.
When the best-laid security plans fail, a security team can provide dynamic responses to any situation. From fire safety to perimeter patrol, a security officer is one of the most comprehensive ways to ensure you and your building are safe.
If you’re looking for a more specialized option for your specific property, you need a risk assessment check. A certified assessor can pinpoint the weaknesses in your building security, as well as potential threats and the likelihood of particular attacks.
Only a thorough risk and threat assessment can give you the information you need to choose the proper building security protocols and technologies. It only takes a single missed weakness in your building security to compromise your business.
A major feature in any building security is surveillance. Whether you own a convenience store, school or office building, surveillance can protect your location from intruders. If employees have access to sensitive information or finances, surveillance can also protect your company from an employee.
Choose from a wide range of state-of-the-art surveillance technology. From spectrum analyzers and wideband receivers to phone monitoring devices, there are countless ways to protect your business assets from theft, vandalism or other crimes.
If a burglar enters your location, a range of surveillance technologies can immediately alert the authorities of a certain crossed boundary. From laser sensors to thermal-imaging cameras, protecting the interior of your building can be just as essential as the perimeter.
Secure Access Control
If you’re concerned about unauthorized access to your building, whether during work hours or afterhours, secure access controls and photo identification systems can help you ensure that only authorized employees are able to enter your building or particular rooms in your building.
Unauthorized visitors can be a major security concern for certain businesses. It’s essential that you can accurately identify everyone in your building and deny access to certain individuals. Secure access can be achieved by using traditional keys, ID badges or more advanced means of identification, like fingerprint scanners or retinal scanners. Whichever technology you choose, ensure that your employees understand how it operates in order to effectively secure your building.
With a wide range of options available, you can tailor your access control based on your budget and the amount of control you need. Some businesses require extensive high-level clearance and authorization, while other businesses simply want a safe way to lock up without worrying about a burglar picking the lock.
In the age of the internet your building security goes beyond the physical building. Access to your computer and servers can be just as damaging as physical access in your building. Guard this figurative doorway to your company information with the latest cyber security.
From the latest antivirus to anti-piggybacking and the latest firewall protection, your business may need a team of IT security professionals to keep your important information safe. Use your threat assessment to determine the scope of IT security necessary for your company.
