Do you need a strategy for your security? The short answer is yes. There isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach to security, the type of security you need for your business is determined by a number of factors, detailed below.

1. The location of your business

Considering your local crime rate is perhaps the first step in setting your strategy. Crime rates vary considerably across the country, but they will also change depending on where your business is located. An out-of-town industrial estate will have very different crime rates to inner-city properties. Is your business in a remote location outside of town, or situated within a housing estate? We can advise how each of these locations could impact your security risk.

2. The size of your business

Small businesses may come with issues surrounding budget or support when it comes to security, whereas large businesses may lose track of keyholders or lack continuity in locking up.  Both of these can cause problems, and we can discuss options that suit the size of your company.

3. Your industry

E-commerce warehouses that carry an incredible amount of stock and manufacturing factories with expensive machinery might seem like very different industries, but both could be attractive targets if a lack of security makes them vulnerable. The nature of your industry could affect the type of security best recommended, and we can advise based on years of security experience.

4. Who has access to your business premises?

When we mention access, we mean security codes as well as keys. Do you have a set of trusted keyholders, or is that something Carter Security can assist with? When was the last time you changed your access codes – and further still, do you change them every time a member of the team leaves the business? We can review your current procedures and advise you on the best way to keep your business safe.

5. We can accommodate your budget
