What are the best security options for my business?
There is a wide range of security options for businesses, which embrace simple precautions such as floodlights to very sophisticated CCTV surveillance and technology equipment. No two businesses are the same and DNA Security provides security solutions tailored to your very individual needs.
But how much importance do businesses place on security?
Running a business can be very rewarding but responsibilities and demands mean valuable time is involved in meetings, deadlines, appeasing clients and completing spreadsheets. Often tasks have to be delegated and prioritised, with the less urgent matters putt to the bottom of the pile.
But supposing you get it wrong?
What happens if the most important thing gets put to the bottom of the pile?
Sometimes this happens and security reviews. You are busy. Would it really matter if you call the security company tomorrow? Next week? Next month? After all, you have managed so far with the patched up burglar alarm. You make a note to get the flood light at the back repaired and do you really need CCTV and the extra cost?
So you leave security planning at the bottom of the pile again. For when you have spare time.
And then the unthinkable happens and your premises are targeted and you become a crime statistic. Not only do you have to pay for a locksmith and glazier, all those spreadsheets and project schedules were on the laptop, which is now on EBay.
Did you find time to at least record serial numbers of electronic equipment?
Was everything backed up on hard drives or the cloud?
DNA Security appreciates that crime and vandalism can have a devastating impact on businesses. They can offer constructive advice to help you protect your premises, allowing you to concentrate on achieving your goals and profits.
Each business will have a unique set of demands, requiring a bespoke security plan. This should be a collaborative exercise. You and our employees know and understand your business. You will be aware of your areas of vulnerability and should discuss any previous problems with criminal activity on or near your premises This can be invaluable when assessing security concerns and assessing your level of potential risk.
If your business involves storing high value stock in warehouses, then a range of security measures may well include:
- Intruder alarms
- Flood lights
- Door Access Pads
Other factors need to be considered such as the location and size of your premises. Remote locations will have to manage crime risks, which are very different from urban or city premises. Your business may have made costly investment in technology and electronic equipment will need to consider how to protect these items from theft. Another factor is the safety and well being of your employees. Is your staff car park well lit at night? Have their been instances of theft or damage to vehicles?
Once a framework has been established, DNA security compiles a specific security plan. A comprehensive range of alarm systems offers affordability and reliability and can be tailored to meet most budgets. Your business may require a monitored alarm system, whereas another might be suited to an unmonitored system and strategically placed floodlights. Criminals prefer to work in the dark, by light of a torch and are often deterred by an efficient lighting system and very loud, audible alarm. Floodlights also afford your employees safety when leaving the premises at night.
There is no ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to protecting your business and employees. By working with DNA Security, you can be assured of a plan tailored to fit your individual needs and budgetary restraints. A combination of technology and tried and trusted methods, will allow you to spend time running your business rather than trying to track your invaluable laptop on EBay or fighting it out with the Insurance company about your increased premiums.
