Top tips for keeping your business secure in 2019
With the New Year upon us, it’s a great time to reflect on things to change or improve during the next 12 months. Whether you’re a new business or a well-established company, we’ve put together 5 New Year’s resolutions to keep your business safe and secure in 2019.
- Light it up
Deter would-be intruders with a well-lit building. Installing good lighting around your premises helps to eliminate hiding spots, keeping pesky criminals at bay.
If your internal lights have timers, put them to good use. Randomly timed lights will keep anyone watching your premises guessing as to whether the building is occupied or not.
- Hide your valuables
As you would at home, try and keep your valuables at work out of sight. If you have window blinds or shutters, make sure they’re pulled down at the end of the day to obscure the view of anyone looking in.
If you can, lock away expensive equipment or irreplaceable files whilst you’re out of the office. It might seem like a chore, but good housekeeping can be a great deterrent to opportunists.
- Install CCTV
If you haven’t already, installing CCTV can provide an extra level of security for your business. Not only does it monitor those entering and exiting your building, but it can also act as a deterrent to undesirables.
Should anything happen to your business premises, it’s also a good source of evidence which could help identify the culprits.
- Keep it mobile
At a fraction of the cost of a static guard, mobile patrols are a great way to provide regular but randomly timed patrols of your business. A visible deterrent to criminals, KeyPlus can provide mobile patrols 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
- A speedy response
If finding a work/life balance is one of your priorities for 2019, an alarm response service for your business could be just what you need. Should your security system activate, we can provide a speedy response on your behalf, reaching your business in just 18 minutes on average.
