Office Security Tips
Posted on 9th November 2017 by Wilson Alarm Systems Blog
It is around Christmas time that burglary rates typically increase for residential homes. However, when it comes to offices, which usually hold a wide range of high-value goods and sensitive information all year round, keeping on top of office security is a must. In the latest blog post by Wilson Alarm Systems, we take a look at office security tips and discuss the ways in which your office can become a safer environment.
Office Security Tips: Alarm Installation
The first in line for our office security tips is to ensure a reliable and secure alarm system is installed. When it comes to purchasing an alarm system, your goal should be to ensure that the level of security it provides is in line with your requirements, and that it works to combat the most frequently occurring crimes in your location. Having a verified system installed will ensure that police response teams can act accordingly.
Most workplaces use computers or laptops to carry out daily tasks. However, to ensure the sensitive data held on these machines remains secure, you may want to consider disabling or removing USB drives and any other means of connecting external drives. By doing so, no one can copy large amounts of data for untoward uses. If necessary, you may also want to prohibit the use of personal email accounts.
Employee Screening and Tracking
Third in line in our list of office security tips is concerned with the staff members employed, as opposed to the systems implemented. Many employers use a screening process when recruiting, carrying out a CRB check on potential candidates and collecting references from relevant people.
In addition to this process, access control systems can be implemented, helping business owners understand who is inside an office building at any given time.
