Edited by Admin
Back to Home

You’ve probably invested a lot of time and energy into making your business a success, so why would you want to leave it vulnerable to thieves? Securing your business against theft, from both employees and people outside your company, just makes good sense. Here are some simple tips for improving your business security that you can put into action today.


Change Your Locks When Someone Leaves


It’s sadly common to hear stories of disgruntled ex-employees sneaking back onto the premises to steal documents or equipment in an attempt to get revenge on their former employers. Even if you ask for their keys before they leave the building, there’s no guarantee that they won’t have made a copy.


A simple re-key of the locks, or changing them completely, will help keep ex-employees out of your building and make your business more secure.


Make Sure Your Locks Are Working Properly


That annoying lock that always ‘sticks’ when you’re trying to get into your office in the morning could be more than just a nuisance; it could make it easier for thieves to gain access. Maintaining your locks will help provide you with peace of mind and a more secure workplace.


Let a commercial locksmith perform regular maintenance for your business so that you can catch small problems before they become major security issues. This is also a good time to update any passcodes for keyless entry locks your business uses. Just as changing your computer passwords regularly is good for data security, changing your entry passcodes is equally good for your physical security.


Make Your Business ‘Burglar Un-friendly’


When it comes to boosting security at your business, some of the same principles of good home security apply.

  • Use adequate lighting at entryways, including motion activated lighting, to deter opportunist thieves from attempting a break-in.
  • Make sure you have the best locks installed for your entryways.
  • Consider using security cameras, if you don’t already use them. They can’t stop a burglary, but their presence can make a burglar think twice before attempting a break-in.

Just a little preventive action can keep your business, employees and assets safe at all times. Don’t leave your business vulnerable, use these tips to boost your business security today.
