Leadership

On guard!

Written by ProfitGuide

SECURITY GUARDS

Give you eyes and ears on-site and offer a strong deterrent value that no amount of high-tech gadgetry can replace

CLOSED-CIRCUIT TV CAMERAS

May help security staff—or you, via the Web—spot a break-in or at least help identify the thieves after the fact

SERVERS IN SECURE STORAGE ROOMS AND OFF-SITE DATA BACKUP

An added security layer will slow or even deter thieves altogether. And if all else fails, backing up your data will keep you in business

MOTION DETECTORS

Identify intruders by their movements or room-temperature changes, and act as a backup if a thief breaches your perimeter without tripping an alarm

GOOD OFFICE LIGHTING AND LOW CUBICLE WALLS

Make it easy to spot intruders looking to pilfer items such as laptops

STURDY LOCKS

Hefty locks, deadbolts, doorplates and doorhinge pins stop burglars from knocking a door off its hinges

DOOR ALARMS

Alerts your alarm provider of an intruder; an alarm with an audio receiver will let your provider listen to the theft live to help guide the security or police response

EMPLOYEE SWIPE CARDS AND LIMITED ENTRY POINTS

Makes it simpler to control entry and monitor who comes and goes when

WINDOW FILM WITH A BUILTIN ALARM

Makes windows virtually shatterproof; the alarm alerts authorities of a robbery in progress

CLOSE-CROPPED VEGETATION

Trimming back hedges eliminates cover for burglars and opens sightlines to and from your building so cops can see in and you can see out
