Why You Need a Good Security Company
Did you know that London is one of the most surveilled cities in the world, with well over 600,000 CCTV cameras in the city? This is mainly due to population density and a higher crime rate (being the capital city) so the need for monitoring is essential.
CCTV is just one of the ways to protect your business, so during these quieter times why not review your existing security provision? Whether the goal is to prevent criminal or malicious behaviour or to protect the health and safety of your staff and customers now is the time to proactively assess what you currently have in place. While criminal and anti-social behaviour may be lower due to lockdown, as these measures ease there may unfortunately be a rise as things return to ‘normal’.
In order to follow Government guidelines, most businesses will need to combine these two security goals in order to survive and secure their future in the current climate – ignoring one or both of these could severely effect you.
Factors To Consider When Reviewing Your Business Security
You can avoid it – simple measures such as security guards (static or mobile) are a great deterrent to criminals and can decrease any risks and save you money in the long term.
It should be a priority – while you may have the latest tech protecting your servers from cyber-crime, what about the physical safety of your premises and equipment?
Protecting your people – criminals don’t work to office hours! They are opportunists – would you want to be liable for an injury to an innocent staff member during a robbery?
Are you a soft target? – Criminals are smart and will often watch a potential target weeks in advance. If you don’t have visible security, they will think you’re an easy target!
There are more criminals in densely populated areas – London has a population of over 13.5 million which equals more than 12% of the UK’s entire population. Where there’s more people there’s more crime – simple.
The plus points will outweigh the cost – ignore health and safety at your peril – your opening could be delayed or closed permanently.
