At the start of any new year, it’s normal to reflect on the past 12 months and start to list your priorities for the upcoming year. With the cost of living crisis still very much a factor in everyday life, crime rates are expected to stay high, and this should make the security of your business a key consideration.

Consider how your business has changed over the last 12 months

12 months is a long time, and your business could have changed in that time. Perhaps you’ve upscaled certain areas, or maybe downsized your premises? Maybe you’ve diversified and your focus is in a completely different direction from the one you started in at the start of 2022. Any and all changes will require a review of your security requirements. This is something we can help you with. We can assess whether manned guarding or mobile patrols would be a good fit, or whether CCTV monitoring would be a better investment. With over 30 years in the industry, we’re experts at finding the right balance between what’s effective and what’s affordable for the budget of our clients.

Consider changes around your business location

Perhaps your business is mostly unchanged from the start of the year and you’re therefore thinking that you need not address the security of your business premises… Well, we’d ask you to consider the change in the surroundings of the area your business is in. Have businesses closed down, and have residential areas sprung up? All of these changes in the local area could have a direct impact on the crime rate – good and bad. We can help you assess these changes and determine how they could affect your security measures.

Consider changes in your workforce

One of the biggest risks to the security of your business is your workforce. They have the security codes, the keys, and the knowledge of security cameras, ID badges and so on and so forth. Should you have a high turnover of staff, your business is especially at risk. It’s for this reason, amongst others, that we offer a keyholding service and an alarm response service.
