How do you ensure your business site is secure?
Business security should be high on the list of those who have assets to protect whether they be physical such as goods, staff, or immaterial; sensitive computerised files.
It is worth looking at the potential monetary loss. For instance; Do you sell products? How much is that stock worth? What impact would that have on your business?
When you start to look at the figures, it’s well worth putting in a security system to keep your site secure.
Additionally, not only does a good security system act as a theft deterrent, but it can also be used in the event of a health and safety issue or for controlling access to restricted areas. It is also important to note that should the unthinkable happen, you have done all you can to either prevent the occurrence or be able to provide images should they be needed.
A good security system should:
Notify you of an unauthorised entry – Record evidence of unsolicited activities – Allow quick access to when and where incidents have happened – Restrict access to unauthorised persons
You have many options when it comes to your business security, dependent on your needs and your business site:
- CCTV Systems – A good CCTV system will enable you to check your site via an app, notify you of an authorised entry and enable you to search a specific area for an incident, quickly.
- Access Control – You can get two types of access control; Biometric or Standard. Both should stop unauthorised persons from entering an area although, Biometric adds that extra level of security.
- Intruder Alarms – A good Intruder Alarms will have Motion Detectors, Shock Sensors, Alarm, Panic Buttons and be controllable via an App.
- Security Gates and Barriers – Some Security Gates and Barriers can be manually controlled or automated to grant access alongside access control. There are different types of security gates and barriers: Sliding Gates, Turnstiles, Drop arm barrier, Traffic spikes, Palisade fencing, Bollards and Pedestrian gates.
- Fire Alarms – Fire alarm regulations state that all business premises must have ‘an appropriate fire detection system’. Essentially, you need a detection system in place that allows everyone to be warned so they can quickly and safely exit the building. There are three types of Fire Alarms: Conventional fire Alarms, Addressable fire Alarm, wireless fire alarms.
Your security needs will depend on various factors such as assets, site size and type of business so please get in touch for a free site security audit.
