What Would it Take to Protect my Business?December 23rd, 2018 | by Radius Security | in Security
Being a business owner can be a tough position, especially in the uncertain economies of Toronto, Calgary and Vancouver. In such times, not many businesses could survive losing valuable assets, both physical and digital, to burglary. With this in mind, it becomes imperative that businesses find ways to protect themselves by means such as
- ensuring their business is secure;
- Installing video surveillance;
- and by installing intrusion detection alarms.
Burglars need an access point, and these usually come in the form of windows or doors. The first step to protecting your business is to make sure all locks are well maintained and function properly. Make sure that latches can not be easily pried open. Make sure that doors are constructed from solid wood or metal, and even reinforce the doorjamb for extra resistance against being kicked open. Rolling garage or shop doors should also be secured with padlocks on the roller channel.
Video surveillance technology has made huge strides each and every year. Newer technologies are smaller, cheaper and more effective then their predecessors. Video surveillance systems are also able to digitally record the footage, and even store this data on the cloud. Modern systems also allow for instant access from anywhere, through any Wi-Fi enabled smart device. Specialty systems are also very customizable, and can detect motion and other irregularities.
It is also important to keep your business network secure. Intrusion detection systems (IDS) are devices or software that can monitor your businesses internal network and report any suspicious activity to an administrator. Protecting your businesses online assets is just as important as protecting physical ones.
Check those exterior doors and windows, install that video surveillance system, and keep your online presence safe and secure. Most burglaries can be prevented by being proactive, and planning in advanced.
