When you own and operate a business, your biggest fear is threats involving theft, violence, or emergencies.
This is why having a security plan should be top of mind for your business. Having a solid security plan will help ensure that your people, property, and assets are protected, and it will also help protect your bottom line.
So, how do you establish a security plan?
Here are some top tips on coming up with the right plan that will help your business on the security front.
Develop a risk assessment plan
What’s really the risk involving your business? This is the question you and your management team need to ask. Once you answer this, then you are on your way to developing the right security plan. Are you worried about equipment being stolen from a construction site? How about clothing going missing from your retail store? Or, what about cash being stolen from the office?
Theft is real, and so are other serious incidents, which means that you need to identify all possible threats in your plan that will help you determine where security guards or video monitoring systems should be located.
Perform a threat analysis
Extending from your risk assessment plan is a threat analysis, which will identify potential vulnerabilities for your business. This is where you and your team need to consider every possible scenario and include this in your security plan. Do you need video monitoring at main entrances? Do you want guards at main entrances? Would mobile security guard patrols be the right solution for your needs? Or would all of these services together prove beneficial for your business?
A risk assessment plan will establish what’s needed and a threat analysis sets your security plan in motion when it comes to manpower and technology.
