Should business security be scary?

Not only is it Halloween this weekend, but it’s also the end of daylight saving time which means the clocks will go back in the early hours of Sunday morning. 

As the nights draw in, making sure your business is protected is important. Darkness can often act as a cover for creepy would-be criminals. 

Sorting out your business security may seem daunting, but it certainly shouldn’t be scary… A few simple steps can go a long way towards protecting your business.

Brains, brains, brains…

When was the last time you reviewed the measures you’ve put in place to protect your business? 

Sit down and really think about what you’re doing to keep it safe and where you may have gaps in protection. A little brain power now can give you some quick wins in time for the darker winter months.

Get out that broomstick!

If you have CCTV cameras in place, now’s a great time to give them a clean and make sure they’re free from cobwebs, ready to capture any ‘bumps in the night’. 

The same goes for the rest of your business premises too. Take a good look outside to make sure there are no large pieces of debris lying around. Bricks or pieces of metal could be used to gain entry if they fall into the wrong hands.

Phone a ‘fiend’

If you need support with your business security, give a reputable security service provider a call. Even if you’re not sure what kind of support you need, they’ll be able to talk you through your options. 

Services will often include key holding, alarm response and mobile patrols, but a good provider will be able to advise you on the best way to protect your business by arranging a meeting with you in person, or over the phone, to run through their services and answer any questions you may have.
