How To Ensure Your Office Is Secure

There are many security concerns with businesses, from IT security to protecting your office from physical intruders. There are simple steps you can take to ensure your office is protected from intruders.

Securing your office does not have to be expensive and will save you money if someone did attempt to break in. Most offices contain expensive equipment as well as valuable company information that should not reach the hands of outsiders so it is vital to take security measures and install security products.

The most obvious step is to invest in an intruder alarm as it will deter intruders, as well as draw attention if someone was to break in. There are many different intruder alarms; some are connected to the police station so sends out a warning if it goes of. Others can be connected to your mobile warning you of an intruder.

Taking the security further you can install CCTV equipment, which again deters intruders and provides you with footage if an intruder was successful, it also gives the police evidence when investigating.

As well as protecting your office you should protect the computers inside ensuring all have passwords, so if an intruder broke in they would not be able to steal information from them. It is also a good idea to lock away any important documents ensuring they are not on show.  Important information should be shredded when thrown away stopping intruders from stealing it.

When leaving the office all doors and windows should be locked and blinds should be down so no one can see into the office. A security procedure should also be in place so all members of staff know what needs to be done before they leave the office.
