Signs You Need to Upgrade Your Business Security

Fri, Oct 9, 2020 12:53 AM

As a business owner, before you need them, you can not think much about your various security and surveillance systems. That means that your current solutions may have become outdated, suffer from gaps, or are simply clearly outdated and not fully functional. 

By the time you understand these security deficiencies, it might be too late to fix them. In areas where the growth of emerging technologies, such as the Internet of Things, poses much more danger than before, this is most important.

Is Your Security Prepared? 

Companies face a whole new set of challenges to protect their workers, consumers, and stakeholders with the arrival of COVID-19 and new safety and health regulations. A defense failure could lead to crushing litigation that could destroy a small firm financially. 

In unfamiliar environments or situations, members of your company, or your partners, could be working remotely. Your security protocols and solutions can be vulnerable, as they have to work across geographically dispersed areas, or at hours and in circumstances for which they were not intended.

Protection Assessment and Evaluation

Given the current scenario, if you're in doubt as to how current and robust your current business security system is, here are five indications to consider. If you choose to suggest an update or revamp, you could:

1. You can't respond to disruptive or dangerous circumstances in real-time. Thieves or vandals can strike at any time at your business. Plus, considering the numerous restrictions caused by COVID-19, destructive activity has recently been exhibited by members of the public. The quickest, safest responses can be enabled by a high-resolution camera system that feeds into a 24/7 control system.

2. In key areas of ongoing enforcement and security, you can not view/record activities. This especially applies to companies that are customer-facing, such as restaurants or retail stores. Given the latest hygiene regulations, you need to be able to prove that you are following social distancing and similar guidelines.

3. It's been years since the surveillance/security systems were upgraded. High tech thieves never rest. They develop new hacking schemes and viruses. Through making sure your network has all of the new software updates and security protocols in place, you can help defeat that. Can all things on your premises be clearly registered by your cameras? Regularly, high-resolution cameras enhance and allow ever more visibility into your facilities or shop floors. By enabling securely encrypted off-site video storage and streaming 24/7, cloud-based solutions will provide more security. 

4. You lack in communications and/or power redundancy. Thieves have been smarter than ever before. To stop a burglar alarm from hitting first responders, they can cut out the landline. You should have backup communications, such as cellular networking or connectivity, in place. Similarly, if the power in your facility goes out, back up battery power will ensure that once electricity is restored, the alarms remain alive.

5. After the last surveillance/alarm installation, your company has changed or grown significantly. Are you located in the same place? Have you extended the current one? Are new areas covered enough? To fit your growth, you have to periodically re-evaluate your existing infrastructure.

 

If any or all of these situations apply to you, a security update is worth considering. In this ever-changing and demanding commercial environment, modern surveillance and motion sensor technologies will protect you and your business.
