10 Ways to Protect Your Business from Crime

Protect Your Business

Crime levels in countries like the US and UK have been rising like crazy lately. And what are these criminals doing? Planning out advance ways to rob businesses and reaching more and more organizations. If you are someone who owns a business that you’ve worked hard on, it should be your responsibility to protect it from harm. Crime rates are rising as it is, you shouldn’t let your business take a hit from it. Security is the number one thing that has to be on your mind. A proper security system acts as a precaution. To cover it a bit more in detail, here are some ways you can protect your business from criminal activity.

  1. Risk Management

Location is obviously important. Some might be less prone to burglary than others. Although assessing risks with regard to the place of business is crucial there’s a lot more to it. You and your employees need to factor in what points make you vulnerable. Does the building have a safe enough parking lot? Do your employees leave work late which will subject them to using the parking area late? There are several tiny risks that you will have to think about. When it comes to your business, things like these cannot be missed out.

  1. Protect Inside and Boundaries

Making sure that the whole building premises are secure should be on your list. Aspects like poorly locked doors and windows are literally an invitation for burglars to invade the space. Do whatever you can to secure them. Efficient robbery-proof door locks could be installed and window locks as well. Try not to leave any vulnerable elements around. Also, CCTV is quite important. Consult a good company about your options. A usb panic button can also be installed for emergencies.

  1. Educate Your Staff

Having employees that are alert and aware is a good way of protecting your business. If they are already aware of the risks involved and what to do if certain scenarios arise then that’s great. If not, you have some work ahead of you. Organize some mock drills and security training every month or so. Not only is it a break away from work, but it is worthwhile as it contributes to your safety.

  1. Monitor Machinery & Important Equipment

Regular audits and inventory checks should be a part of your monthly business routine. You can even take a step further and assess responsibility to employees for different equipment. This way all the important stuff is backed up and monitored. Expensive items can be kept secured in a particular room with the required security. Serial numbers and tags can help organize equipment and also keep track at the same time.

  1.  Look at The Big Picture

Taking a holistic approach is important while protecting your business. Do not showcase fear and put your business up as a stocked and brave one. CCTV cameras that are prominent are a great way to do this. Also, surveillance systems that make alert noises every time a customer enters or exits could be an option.

  1. Prevent Theft Within

You must remember that robbery is not solely possible from the outside. Employee theft is sadly also a thing. To avoid such circumstances, you can make sure every time you hire someone to check their details carefully. Employee background checks are necessary steps.

  1. Avoid Data Theft

Physical robbery might be a thing, but nowadays data theft is more of a thing. This is because literally, anyone has access to the internet. Keep checking on your IT team and make sure they have the necessary precautions set up.

  1. Use Lockers

Sensitive information makes its way through the store or office almost every day. Use lockers to store important data and dispose-off information well. Do not just throw it around anywhere. You never know who might use it for the wrong cause.

  1. Consult Authorities

Local police stations may serve the best advice on security. Consult them on how you could increase security around the premises and avoid theft as much as possible. Ask them about cybercrime invasions as well.

  1. Improve Security Annually

In order to stay one step ahead of robbers, you must improvise the security in your business at least once a year. Burglars these days are doing the same to be more so you must make sure you are way ahead.

We all know that pigeons are considered very unpleasant but they have been used as allies during the battle. Earlier, there were no means of communication such as phones or other things.
