Though certain businesses – retail shops, dental offices, and pharmacies – are at greater risk of burglary and other security issues, all businesses can be targeted. The occurrence of any security issue can not only threaten your ability to run your business but could leave the sensitive information of yourself, your business, and your employees vulnerable to misuse.  Use this guide to keep your business safe from potential threats.


Install a High Quality Security System

A properly functioning and high quality security system is one of the best ways to keep your business safe when no one is there. Thankfully, security technology is now highly advanced and includes many types of systems that can be customized to fit the specific needs of your business. Invest in a complex system that includes strategically placed video surveillance, motion detection, and sensors. Some systems even include direct control and monitoring from a mobile device so you can keep an eye on your property even when you’re far away.


Keep Your Business Well Lit

Many burglars skillfully take advantage of the cloak of darkness to commit crime and keep their identities hidden. Keep your business well lit to discourage criminal activity and make your property less desirable. Floodlights, spotlights, and other interior / exterior lighting can make a huge difference in the overall security of your business, regardless of its size or location


Hire Highly Qualified & Experienced Security Guards

Electronic security, strategic lighting, and alarm systems can never beat the efficiency of a live and insightful security guard or patrolman. Hiring an experienced security staff provides another layer of highly visible protection that can discourage thieves from even attempting to break in or vandalize your property.  Live security staff can also provide a wider range of surveillance because they can travel and monitor a large and varied area including hidden spots, unlike video surveillance.
