Top Security Mistakes that Could Hurt Your Business
What steps do you take to keep your business and building safe and secure? Chances are, you might be making one of the following mistakes that seem small but have the potential to cost your business and leave it vulnerable to theft and intrusion. Read on for the top three security mistakes that you should avoid.
Improper Management of Entry IDs
Today, many businesses use some form of ID system in their buildings. The idea is to monitor access of employees, and sometimes visitors, to various areas within the building. When implemented correctly, these systems can be very useful in tracking people throughout the building and ensuring that only authorized people are allowed in certain areas. However, many ID access control systems are not properly enforced. This can greatly damage your building’s security, which is why it is so important to have proper training for using ID badges and to make sure that all employees and visitors are complying with the access control system rules.
Forgetting to Secure All Entry Points
How many entry points are there in your building? two, five, or even more? It is likely that your building has multiple entrances where people can go in and out. Some business owners make the mistake of focusing only on securing the main entry points while leaving alternate entry points weak to intrusion. This mistake poses an increased security risk. That’s why it is so important to be sure that all doors and entrances to the building have adequate security and are fitted with CCTV cameras or other security systems.
Improper Training for Security Systems
Security systems can be complex, especially with the advanced technology that we have today. A security system is no use if you do not understand how to use it correctly and get optimal performance from your security system. This is true from a cost standpoint as well as a security standpoint, as you want to make sure that you are getting use out of your investment. Make sure that the company you use can provide ongoing training and support to ensure that you and your security team are using the security system to its fullest potential.
