As a business owner, it is important that you are constantly vigilant about the security needs of your company. While cybersecurity is obviously a major concern in today’s technology-driven world, you must also always be aware of the physical security needs of your business to protect against theft and other crimes.
Here are a few simple ways to make sure that your business is protected:
- Keep the door locked – It may sound obvious and simple, but you would be surprised at how many companies forget to keep the front door locked. You certainly do not want to make it easy for an intruder to go waltz in from the lobby to the inner office. While a receptionist or front office clerk may help deter this, it’s always better to lock the door and be safe rather than sorry.
- Be sure that your security systems feature a back-up battery – Being protected at all times means being able to send an emergency signal no matter the circumstances. Having a battery back-up means that your security systems will be able to sound the alarm signal when help is needed even if you do not have power.
- Install better door locks – Where ever it is possible, have high-security or commercial door locks installed. This is one of the simplest things you can do as a business owner to protect your company. These locks can withstand high usage rates and are actually easier to maintain or repair. Simple door locks are easier for criminals to break into.
- Have an access control system installed – Access control systems can limit entry to your building or important areas of your business to employees or allow after-hours access. With these systems, employees are able to access areas using a fingerprint, key card, or similar device to unlock the door. They also let you track who is accessing certain areas of your building and when.
These are just a few simple things that you can do to keep your business and employees safe and sound at all times. For more information on commercial security systems or access control systems, or to upgrade your system, contact the security experts at A Total Solution, Inc. today!
