October is National Cybersecurity Month. At Detect-All Security, we provide physical security, not cybersecurity. However, tips for cybersecurity can also be adapted for physical security. When it comes to the security of your home or business, you can never be too sure. Follow these physical security tips to create a safe environment.
Key Card Access
One way to protect your business is by giving your employees key card access. Key cards are more secure than giving employees regular keys. Key cards allow you to track who comes and goes from your building. They also track the hours that someone comes in and out of the building. That way, if you think an employee is entering the premises after hours for something not work related, you can see what is happening. Additionally, key cards also allow you to shut down access should someone accidentally lose their key card. By giving out key cards to your employees, you know that it stays in their hands. By offering key card access as a piece of physical security for your employees, you know you’re keeping them safe.
Key cards only track who comes in and out of the building. By installing CCTV for the inside of your office, you can watch what your employees do on the clock while also making sure they stay safe. If you feel like employees are doing something they shouldn’t be during the work day, CCTV can confirm that or reassure you that they are staying on track.
Additionally, if you’re worried about the safety of your employees, CCTV can help with that. Be sure to position the cameras in a place in the office that may be vulnerable. If you see something that you don’t like or makes you uncomfortable, you can warn your employees before something potentially happens. Installing CCTV in and around the office is another piece of physical security to keep your business and employees safe.
