Business Burglaries in the 21st Century and How to Prevent Them

TAGS: , , , , ,
Until now, burglars still use ordinary tools to carry out their job. Only very few use the more modern and electronic ones. However, with the development of more sophisticated business security systems and other anti-theft devices such as CCTV cameras and alarm systems, burglary rates have fluctuated and even declined the past few years. According to statistics based on Victoria police records, overall crimes decreased by 5% while burglaries have gone down 3 percent. This is an intriguing, considering the economic difficulties that have plagued different countries and companies for the last three or five years. As you know, crime rates are expected to rise during a financial crisis. But this is not to say that losses have also gone down. The fact remains that businesses lose a significant amount of money to theft, despite the advent of modern technological developments. Also, improvements in burglary techniques are inevitable as would-be thieves will be brainstorming for more effective ways to carry out their plans. Nevertheless, the fact remains that crime has gone on a downward slope. One of the reasons for this, as what analysts observe, is the use of sophisticated security systems. In the past few years, the installation of business alarms and CCTV systems have increased and discouraged a good number of potential crimes. These have even been instrumental in the capture of perpetrators, with the footage or monitoring records serving to strengthen the case against burglars who have been brought to court. Due to the efficiency and practicality of such security devices, no business is without them. Can the same be said of yours? If you have...

Developing Business Security Policies

TAGS: , , ,
Setting a well defined business security plan is critical to the stability of any company or organisation.    Preventing theft and interruptions to your business operations cannot be achieved by security equipment alone, it must be complimented by a comprehensive business security action plan. Staff involvement and communication Managing and communicating policies to staff is a big part of business security.   For any policy to be effective it must be part of staff training, monitored, allow for staff feedback and employee input.  Staff must be made aware of the expectations placed on them and made aware that their activities are being monitored. Having procedures in place for when an incident occurs is essential to stability and peace of mind.  Consider what you would need to do if something went wrong, who it would need to be communicated too (stakeholders), how staff would be consulted and how missing or damaged goods could be replaced.  Having a tailored security system for your business will give you easy access to recorded footage which will greatly aide police and potentially lower insurance costs. Managing internal risk Internal risk factors to business security include loss of data due to stolen or damaged equipment, where backups are stored and procedures for getting it restored.  The overall aim is to minimized interruptions to your day to day operations.  Some preventative measures for data loss or tampering include installing antivirus and firewall software on all company computers, knowing who has access to data, regularly changing passwords and setting internet access limits. It is particularly critical to protect customer data as the release of such information is extremely damaging...
