Business Security

What’s a business security plan?

Here at FirstEye we have many years of experience in providing business in Leeds with a wide range of highly effective security solutions. We understand that not everyone has the big budgets needed to afford the latest high-tech security systems and with this in mind, we offer solutions to suit all budgets.

We also understand that the security requirements of different businesses can vary hugely as an office-based business is unlikely to need as much protection as a shop full of expensive stock, or factory used to house valuable equipment, for example. Security is important for all businesses – regardless of what they do – and we work closely with business owners to find a system that’s just right for them.

Business security planning

Many business owners fail to think about security on a regular basis, having no idea if they are adequately protected. Whilst a ‘head in the sand’ approach might work the majority of the time, it can prove extremely expensive and stressful if the worst happens and your suffer a break in. Taking an inventory of your existing security systems is a great way to begin and spending a little time checking your alarm is a good place to start. Here are a few things you might like to think about:

  • Does your business have a reception area? Is it protected by CCTV?

  • Is your business in a remote area?

  • Is your business protected by an alarm, and if it is, when was the last time it was serviced?

  • Do you store sensitive information such as financial records?

  • Does your business have a car park and is it protected from unauthorised vehicles?

Thinking about the security of your business is a good way to identify any areas which are vulnerable and would benefit from extra protection. Reception areas, for example, can really benefit from the protection offered by CCTV, whilst an access control system is a cost-effective way to control who has access to your business premises.

Car parks often benefit from the enhanced security provided by barriers, whilst security lighting offers a way to help staff feel more secure and deter potential intruders. Last and by no means least, ensuring your security alarm is in good working order, or installing an alarm if you don’t already have one is an unbeatable way to increase the security of your business.
