The Most Vulnerable Areas in Your Office You Should Secure

TAGS: , , , , , ,
The door is not the only place in your work premises that you should keep an eye on. There are other points of entry and targets that may not be immediately obvious to you. Not only that, perpetrators don’t always come from the outside – it is highly possible you are actually working with those that pose a serious security threat to your business. As such, it is important to secure all areas that are vulnerable to both external and internal security risks. To do so, you need to identify which aspects of your office are most likely to be targeted by infiltrators. Your Desk If you are the CEO, business owner, manager, supervisor, or holding some other top-level position in your company, it is important to secure highly sensitive and confidential documents and other essential items in your work area. You would not want to lose important data that may be used against you or your company. You also would not want the competition to be in the know regarding your future plans and corporate strategies, nor would you want to lose high-value physical assets that may be found in your room. Your Records and Server Room This is where essential corporate data may be found. To prevent information or identity theft, as well as illegal access to your network, you should have these areas monitored via security surveillance cameras and installed with an efficient business alarm system. Your Supplies Storage Area Keep your company from losing money over discrepancies in product inventory. You should also prevent staff from taking advantage or misusing your office supplies, as frequent...

TAGS: , , , , ,
What’s inside a smart house? A smart house makes use of the latest technology to manage its various fixtures, appliances, entrances, and security systems. Its central electrical “hub” is smartly wired and can monitor various daily activities. Inside a smart house you will find the controls of its major features, such as heating, lighting, and alarm systems, are centralized and can be adjusted via remote devices. Is your home a smart one? You have to admit that daily living these days is vastly different from decades ago. Add in the fluctuations in the economy and changes in society in response to various world events – you cannot expect to march onward in the same rhythm.

CCTV Trends for the Year 2013

TAGS: , , , , ,
The growing concern for information security will not diminish the need to secure physical assets. Even though it is now possible to lose valuable digital data and financial resources without the perpetrator setting foot on the place where the virtual theft happened, there still are numerous cases of physical burglary where high-value items and property have been compromised. As a matter of fact, businesses have lost billions to employee theft alone. As such, camera surveillance still remains relevant and practical in this day and age. However, there has been a gradual evolution to the way CCTVs are improved and used. This is a natural response to prevailing consumer needs and the changing approaches to burglaries and other criminal offences. With that being said, here are the industry forecasts on camera-based surveillance for the year 2013: Cloud-based processing of IP cameras Recordings are typically stored in the device itself or to some other component of the security system. However, there is a risk that the footage or the camera or security system itself may be carried off by smarter perpetrators who know their way around such equipment. But if the recordings are automatically uploaded to the cloud, there is no need to worry. Nowadays, there are security systems that already include this cloud processing feature. More of these types of products will appear in the next few months. Integration into intelligent buildings Now more than ever, security systems will be unified and consciously incorporated into the architecture. They will no longer be “afterthoughts” – installed after everything is already in place. As such, the buildings are considered “intelligent” because these...

CCTVs Can Decrease Incidences of Bullying in Schools

TAGS: , , , , , , , ,
According to The Daily Telegraph, “one in four children from Year 4 to Year 9” is bullied. The last few years of primary school is the period where the said abuse is at its peak, with 32 percent of the students victimized. With those in Year 8, 29 percent of them have reported being subjected to attacks. For the Year 9 ones, it has been found that nearly half of them are either bullying others or are being bullied. It sounds quite alarming, doesn’t it? However, it’s the facts and they are real. They have been collected by a research group commissioned by the Government to do the survey. Although this situation is definitely not good, the great news is that it can be controlled and reduced. What’s even more encouraging is that the essential solutions are not very complicated – one of the effective ones simply involves the installation of surveillance cameras. Academic institutions that were given funding by the government through the Secure Schools Program spent their allocation on lighting, fencing, window improvements, and CCTV. Not long after the installation of 57 cameras, one high school announced a 70% reduction in bullying, as reported through The Daily Telegraph. How about your own learning centre? Does it have the surveillance equipment that will help you prevent acts of abuse or address them properly? Of course, you don’t install CCTV cameras merely for the purpose of putting a stop to bullying. Setting up a cutting-edge security network that allows efficient monitoring of your premises will also help you mitigate other safety risks or undesirable behaviours such as vandalism and...
