What is Threat Assessment
It goes without saying that security is critical in any organization. From major corporations to small startups, all businesses face certain levels of risk associated with different threats. The threats may be from intentional acts to cause harm, natural events, or accidents.
Whatever the nature of the threat, as a business owner, you have a responsibility to manage or limit the risk of these threats. So, how can you ensure you have a multilayered security system to avert or minimize potential threats? By conducting a threat assessment.
A comprehensive physical assessment of the critical areas of your security system, as well as its control and the parameters throughout your organization, can give you the information you need to revamp your security.
Tips for Keeping Your Business More Secure
Criminals and terrorists have become smarter, which means it’s vital now more than ever to improve and update your security systems. Luckily, there are new and better ways to protect your assets, clients, and employees against those with ill intentions. The following tips can help keep your business more secure.
- Consider Shatterproof Windows
Before, windows presented an easy entry point into buildings. However, with shatterproof films, your windows will be strengthened, adding an extra layer of security to your building.
- Install Sensors
You can never go wrong with extra sensors on doors and windows. This security measure can make all the difference in ensuring your business is more secure.
- Surveillance and Alarm Systems
A good surveillance system should be installed even in easily overlooked areas. The system can alert your security team of suspicious activity, and in the event of an incident, identify those responsible while providing evidence. In addition, in case there is an attempted break-in, an alarm system will send intruders running.
- Update Your Doors
Many people simply overlook their doors, which act as the first line of defense. With advanced technology, you can get doors that are almost impenetrable.
- Get a Panic System
Nowadays, threats are not only limited to the dead of night. They can happen at any time, including broad daylight. Giving your employees internal panic bars, among other ways to inform authorities and escape, is essential to their safety.
