Protecting the Building
Did you know that in 2021, around 38% of business premises in wholesale and retail were a victim of crime? With the cost of living crisis hitting families harshly, you can’t expect that number to be much kinder in 2023. That’s why it’s crucial to protect your business’s building with robust security systems.
Some great security measures to put in place include CCTV cameras, access control, and automated doors/gates. CCTV cameras will help deter criminals and catch intruders on camera. Access control is particularly handy, as it only allows access to those who have authority to enter the building – with a sound access control system, you won’t have to worry about strangers wandering into your office or warehouse.
In such a technology-focused landscape, businesses need to put more effort into protecting data. Remember – cybercriminals only get more sophisticated every year as they learn how to overcome cybersecurity measures. That means for 2023, you must invest in sophisticated cybersecurity that protects your data on all fronts. Some of the trends for cybersecurity to watch out for include cloud vulnerability, automotive hacking, and cybercriminals using artificial intelligence.
A business is only as good as its staff, especially regarding security. For all your business’s security precautions to work out, you must ensure your employees know how to keep protected. Training them in cybersecurity is a good start. By educating them on the most common cybersecurity hacks and providing training in how to defend against them, you significantly reduce your risk of experiencing a data breach.
However, don’t forget to train staff in general security, too. Make sure they understand how to use all your security systems properly, whether using the access control system or the automated barriers. The better trained your staff are, the more resilient your business becomes as a whole.
