Security and safety measures are mandatory for any company nowadays. However, your company’s security can be compromised by certain flaws in your own internal system. Here are a few of those factors that need to be addressed if you want to upgrade your level of security.
Lack of Information – The first ones to understand and use your office’s physical and digital security systems should be your own staff and that means everyone from to top management to the lowest positions. Typical security tools such as data encryption, CCTV setups and alarm systems can be rendered useless if your people don’t know how to use them or ignore their importance.
Higher Management Exceptions – Sometimes people get a little awkward checking their higher-ups when they don’t wear their IDs. It gets even worse when they ask those beneath them to “badge them in” when entering the complex. When there’s a lax with security policies because of those above, then you would expect those below to eventually follow their example.
Minimising Entrance Security – Some companies decide that parts of their building or property don’t need extensive entrance security in the hopes of reducing costs. However, having just a single security system for specific entryways only puts your property at risk. Go ahead and install an intrepid fence detection system but make sure that all your doors and access points are also suitably secured.
Deficiency of Digital Security – Some of the most important and valuable items in your company is information. Installing the most basic antivirus and anti-malware programs along with data encryption software and digital certificates should be required for all your computer networks and websites. Updating of security hardware and software along with proper information dissemination for their uses should be done regularly.
Finally, hold continuous training sessions and information drives regarding your company’s security and safety for all your people. Be stringent with implementing your company’s security regulations. You can never be faulted for protecting your business, information and staff so continue to be vigilant. After all, prevention is always better than cure.
