Sometimes we can have security measures in place but we don’t double-check to ensure they are working to the best of their ability. This is why we have put together a list of 5 ways that you can improve the security of your business.
- Make one person responsible
It is a good idea to have one person who is responsible for overseeing security. It can be a trustworthy member of staff, who you feel safe in the knowledge that the business is safe whilst you are away and they are in charge. A very simple but effective measure that can deter burglars. The person needs to be able to track and monitor who is allowed access to security information, be the person security services can contact, ensure maintenance of security systems is undertaken and update keyholder information.
- Put a plan in place
Ensure that maintenance plans are in place to reduce avoidable alarms and costly repairs. Also, make sure that a crisis management plan is in place. This will outline points of contact and how to deal with different scenarios such as assembly points. Allowing staff to know what to do, regardless of what may happen.
- Regularly review your security

- Check your CCTV footage
If the worst does happen, then the CCTV footage will be priceless. So, ensure you are one step ahead by monitoring the footage to allow you to adjust it in due time.
- Think before you share
All data is precious to a business. Ensure your information remains secure by only sharing it with a selected and trusted few. As a password in the wrong hands could lead to a plethora of disaster in the future for your business. Also, ensure that passwords are updated regularly.
