Controlling Security Threats Within The Office
When it comes to protecting your business premises from security threats there is a lot of effort you can put into safeguarding the premises through key holding
, alarm response
and mobile patrol
However this is not enough once you take the security threats that are inside the office. Those that are considered ‘inside jobs’.
Here we will provide you with some useful tips and ideas regarding this kind of security and scrutiny that is crucial for the success of your business. Since these security measures involve the employees directly so they must be projected with extra care keeping moral and ethical values in mind. The employees must feel trusted by the company all the while.
Keep changing passwords and codes
This measure may be a little difficult and inconvenient but this is an incredibly effective security measure. Have a trusted set of employees from whom this information trickles down to the rest of the company. Do not allow everyone to change passwords or codes in order to keep your premises as well as valuable data secure. The alarm codes should also be changed regularly, and proper technical assistance must be taken in this regard.
Provide different codes for different departments
This measure is very effective if you run a huge business where there are different departments to handle specialized tasks. By keeping the codes of each department separate, you can easily identify in which department there was a breach and who might or might not be responsible for that from your set of employees for that particular department.
Disable access for ex-employees
In most of the cases the employees who are fired or resign are linked to any security threats or breach that happens after they left. This is true in many cases too.so in order to avoid this problem it is better that the employees who leave the company should not have access to the company codes or passwords. There should be a system that disables access of key cards and alarm codes to ex-employees.
These were some tips on further securing your business premises.
