April 19th, 2022 by Van Ausdall & Farrar

Protecting your business’s assets, sensitive information and employees should be at the top of any company’s list. In this modern era of business, we take every precaution available to us to keep our online information safe and secure. From multi-factor identification to VPNs, business owners everywhere are taking the leap to keep what they value most protected. This is great, but what about the physical security of your business and its employees?

Does My Business Need Physical Security?

Simply put, if your business has a physical location or employees, you would greatly benefit from having a physical security location. The likelihood of security threats, vandalism and crimes have been rampant in recent years and is a serious threat to businesses everywhere.

With more than 50 billion dollars stolen from businesses by employees last year and 70% of security cameras being out-of-date, there has never been a better time to upgrade your business’s physical security.

Even the smallest business with a location and staff should have a security and safety plan in place. Centered around the idea of keeping both your physical assets and employees safe.

Where to Start with Physical Security?

Once you have decided that your business and its employees need an extra layer of protection, you and a qualified security company can get to work on a strategy for success.

The first step towards high-level physical security is to make a plan of action. With an overarching goal of protecting your business’s assets and staff members in place, you can decide what type of security would best suit your specific needs.

What is Included in a Physical Security Plan?

A physical security plan can mean a number of different things, depending on how in-depth you would like to be. Common physical security solutions include:
