Each business has unique assets and therefore unique security needs. However, certain business are in greater need than others of comprehensive security measures. Ideally, every business will have a custom-tailored security solution that addresses all potential vulnerabilities.
Assessing the need for a security system
Any business with assets to protect can benefit from a security system. Such assets may include:
- Inventory – Product, whether on the sales floor or in storage, attracts the attention of thieves. Retail stores, warehouses, and commercial carriers should consider installing a security system.
- Sensitive customer data – Data breaches are becoming increasingly common and shake consumer confidence in the hacked company. Security solutions can help protect sensitive data in places that retain a large database of such information.
- Equipment and other business property – Computers, construction equipment, and furnishings are major investments for a business, and are commonly lost due to theft or destruction. Office buildings and construction sites are prime targets. Limit loss prevention and expedite recovery with a simple surveillance system.
- Personnel – Employees and other personnel should not be overlooked as assets to be protected from violence, theft, or other threats. Bars, restaurants, and office buildings can help prevent threats to employees by incorporating strategic security measures.
Advantages of a business security system
Asset protection is not the only advantage of a commercial security system. Business owners should also consider:
- Increased customer confidence.
- Deterrence of crime.
- Valuable evidence in liability claims, identifying suspects in criminal matters, and in the recovery of stolen property.
- Lower insurance premiums.
