Five Reasons Why You Should Get a Security SurveyJuly 20, 2017 7:42 pm Leave your thoughts
The security of your business is only as strong as its weakest point, but identifying the weak points in your security system may not be a simple task. Business owners face a wide range of challenges when it comes to protecting their properties and assets. With new security threats emerging, keeping up with the security needed to meet these threats can be difficult, which is why it is so important to conduct security surveys on a regular basis.
A security survey is a multi-point, physical examination of not only your property and facilities, but also your operations. When we conduct a security survey, we identify potential risks, analyze these risks and then make recommendations on how these can be improved. Besides the obvious benefits of this practice, there are a few other reasons why you should consider getting a security survey:
- Eliminate the risk of liability: In some cases where a security breach has been made and an employee has been harmed, you could be held responsible if you did not have proper security precautions in place. A security survey will help ensure that you have done everything possible to protect your employees, and help eliminate the risk of your being held liable in case a break in or some other sort of security breach should occur.
- Meet current law requirements for security: There may be certain security protocols you are required to meet by law, but keeping up with these laws can be challenging. A security survey will help ensure that your security system is always up to date and meets current security requirements.
- Ensure your money is being spent wisely on effective forms of security: Even if you have a security system in place already, your current system may not be the best use of your security budget. A security survey helps ensure that the money you’ve invested in security is being put to the best possible use.
- Identify weaknesses in your current security system: If you already have a security system in place, conducting a regular security survey will help identify any weaknesses in your current system. As security threats and the assets needing protection change, your security system should change, too. Conducting a regular security survey will help pinpoint weaknesses in your current system.
- Help give you and your employees peace of mind: Feeling safe and secure in your work environment is essential in order to be able to work effectively and productively. A security survey, even if no recommendations are made, will help give you and your employees peace of mind knowing that your building is secure.
If you are looking into putting together a new security system for your business, or even if you have one in place already, getting a security survey is the smartest and most effective way to ensure that your security system is efficient and adequately protecting your business.
