Security Mistakes Fatal to Your Business
Security breaches can be a nightmare for any business as they tend to involve bad press, enormous expenses and the loss of customers. Nonetheless, many entrepreneurs still make mistakes when it comes to security. In fact, it can be extremely difficult for any business to remain ahead of the curve when technology develops so quickly. Avoid these mistakes to lessen any harm that might befall your business.
A Security System that Doesn’t Lock Out Disgruntled Employees
When your business lets go of an employee, how quickly is their access to the building and computer systems disabled? If your company is like many others, then this doesn’t happen quickly enough. This is one of the worst mistakes, because a disgruntled employee, particularly one who has insider access to your computer systems, can wreak havoc. All building access and account credentials that were held by a former employee should be immediately terminated to avoid a security breach.
Making Security Invisible
Maybe having security cameras and monitors everywhere isn’t as aesthetically pleasing as it could be. It’s why many buildings choose to hide these features as much as possible. Unfortunately, this is one of the worst mistakes a company can make. Visible security is a concrete deterrent. When people know they are being watched, they tend to behave better.
Failing to Secure Entrances
Having several entrances and exits makes good safety sense, but it’s essential for security to have all of those portals monitored. A key card system coupled with audible alarms saves your business from making serious mistakes with building access.
Security mistakes can happen to any business. Smart building technology may be one of the most reliable and cost-effective ways for any company to protect its building and data systems. This revolutionary technology is constantly evolving to offer more robust protection.
