Cybercrime is terrifying, without knowing you can be targeted and in an instant have your identity stolen, or have hundreds of thousands of pounds stolen from you. The most obvious way to protect yourself is with up-to-date software, as well as being aware of phishing scams and ensuring your passwords are strong and never shared. For business owners especially the risks can be quite alarming.

There are several ways to implement physical security at your business that will boost your defences against cybercrime.

  1. Keyholding service

The most obvious route would be to ensure that the keys to your business are with a trusted security professional. This helps to prevent unwanted individuals from gaining access to your business premises, being able to sift through paperwork to find passwords or gain access to your computers.

  1. Lock and Unlock

Our lock/unlock service ensures that your business is opened and closed each day by a Carter Security guard. This is particularly useful if you have a high turnover of staff, or if you simply want to ensure that the keys to your business don’t get into the wrong hands.

  1. CCTV monitoring, Manned Guarding and Mobile Patrols

Passwords and sensitive information can often be found left on desks, or thrown away in bins, to be emptied outside the property. If these fall into the wrong hands, you could be facing a cybersecurity breach. Having physical security measures in place to ensure that no one is ‘snooping’ around could make a huge difference. Trespassers could be trying to steal more than just your physical assets by peering through windows and sifting through waste in search of sensitive information that leaves your business compromised.

If you’re looking for quality security at your business, we look forward to discussing your specific security requirements and budget and finding a solution that enables you to operate securely and productively!
