How Can A Business Improve Security?

If you’re a business owner, you’ve probably thought about how to provide the best security for your business. Of course, clients and customers will be more likely to interact with your business if they feel safe. Unfortunately, in today’s world, crime is rising in most major cities; things like burglary, vandalism, shoplifting, employee theft, and fraud are all increasing. These offenses cost billions of dollars each year. These crimes can devastate small business owners who lose customers and employees, which are essential for a business to keep its doors open. Today we’ll discuss security solutions for businesses of all sizes and the benefits of different options.

Visual Inspection

Doing a quick visual inspection of the inside and outside of your business at the beginning and end of every day is a great practice. This is one of the simplest things you can do for business security, and it’s commonly overlooked. This practice allows you to understand what is normal in your business environment and what’s not, and it gives you the advantage of staying on top of facility issues and maintenance early before things become serious problems.

Regulating Access

Regulating access can reduce your risk of theft and vandalism. A few easy ways to control access are by giving away as few keys as possible to your business, placing a second barrier between employees and assets (such as a safe), and restricting access to certain parts of the building as needed through access control systems. As well as rekeying locks as needed. Of course, regulating access does not stop crimes from occurring, but by limiting the amount of access gained to vital data and equipment, you can go a long way to protect your assets. At P.R.E. Security, we offer several solutions to help you with access control; we work hard to stay on top of the latest technology and can provide various solutions no matter the size of your business.

Business Surveillance

Considering the amount of time and money you invest in a business as an owner, you want to ensure you’re doing everything you can to keep it secure. Good security will give you peace of mind, and security cameras are a way to keep an eye on your business even when you are not there. Unfortunately, one of the biggest threats to small businesses is employee theft. Time theft schemes alone affect 75% of all U.S. based companies. Having security cameras in place can motivate employees and customers and discourage activities like time theft. At P.R.E. Security, we know every business is different, so our security surveillance systems are highly customizable. You can ensure you get all the features you need to protect your business.

Establish Good Habits

Establishing good habits such as adequately storing and shredding documents with sensitive information, regularly updating passwords, and properly locking windows and doors are all important habits that can improve the safety of your business for your customers and your employees. Making these habits part of the culture of your business and practicing them yourself instills a sense of security from the top down.
