Protecting Your Business

Posted on May 5th, 2016 by Alert Protective

Businesses small and large need to protect not only sensitive information, but their physical property from burglary, theft, and damage. All of the work that goes into making a thriving business could be gone overnight should a criminal get their hands on valuable information such as records, data, passwords, leads, and more. Likewise, businesses who keep cash in safes or have valuable physical property within their walls are at risk of robbery. Unfortunately, even employee theft is among one of the top reasons for business loss. No matter where in the Chicagoland area your business is situated, you will benefit from securing and monitoring your business’s assets. Below are the top five ways of protecting your business.

Password Protection

Make sure your sensitive information is password protected with strong passwords. Passwords should consist of both upper and lowercase letters as well as numbers and symbols if possible. Changing your passwords frequently is also a good idea. Look into two-step verification if it is available to you.

Install Cameras

Installing cameras is a great way to keep tabs on your business while you are away. Should something happen to your business after hours, it will be documented. It is also a good way to look over employees while they are at work. Believe it or not, over 50% of small businesses have experienced employee theft in one capacity or another. The risk of employee theft is greatly reduced by the presence of cameras in the workplace.

Install an Alarm

Alarm systems are a crucial element to business security. Alarms deter most burglars, and having an alarm system in place means that a contact center will be able to respond to the alarm and have the authorities on site as soon as possible.

Commercial Intercoms

Commercial Intercom Systems are a great way of filtering those who get into a building. By having a commercial intercom, you can speak with those who are trying to get into your building before granting them access. You may pair these intercoms with a camera to view visitors as well.

Commercial Fire Alarms

Break-ins and theft aren’t the only thing that endanger your business. The risk of fire is also prevalent no matter what industry you may work in. Commercial Fire Alarms can be monitored remotely along with smoke, heat, and carbon monoxide detectors. Taking preventative measures vastly outweighs the cost of dealing with the damage of a fire.
