The importance of corporate security

Theft is one of the most common types of a security breach in the corporate world. Alongside accounting fraud and corruption, corporate security inflicts far more damage on society than all of street crime combined. This highlights the necessity for private security firms like Carter Solutions and Services Limited to provide a professional and reliable service to prevent and manage crime at your business.

The trick to ensuring your company isn’t a risk to crime is by taking a proactive approach to your security measures. Whilst it’s likely you have already invested in complex alarm systems, extensive CCTV and expensive locks on all entrances and exits, the most effective security measure you can take is quite literally having feet on the ground.

The fact of the matter is that no amount of security technology will have the initiative that a trained Carter Solutions and Services Limited security officer will have. It won’t have that sixth sense to double-check that last entrance, or the ability to write a thorough report at the end of a shift. Furthermore, no amount of technology will have the ability to step in and retain a criminal or diffuse what could potentially be a volatile situation. Criminals and burglars know this, and that’s why crime rates at business premises’ that have taken the approach to hiring manned guarding, door supervisors and/or mobiles patrols are so low. It’s not a coincidence that these security services are the best deterrent to crime.

If this isn’t reason enough to consider a professional security service, think not only about the physical damage you’d need to pay for should someone break-in and enter your business property. Whilst the cost of a smashed window or kicked-in door might not sound a lot, what about the cost of your reputation should sensitive information on computer systems be stolen? Or the detrimental cost to performance when the offices need to be closed for repairs. Your company could also suffer the cost to your staff morale if they no longer feel staff in the office, especially if they often work late.

All of this adds up to talking to our team and discussing what we can do to make your business safe and secure both during and outside working hours. We can conduct a thorough risk assessment, and work with you to build a contract, bespoke to your business, that covers everything you need within your budget.

For more information on how we can work with you to provide a corporate security service at your business, please don’t hesitate to get in touch a member of our team. We’d love to talk you through which service would work best for your business.
