Business security review – Which areas should you focus on?

05th February 2021

Taking time to plan out your strategies around marketing, finance and growth is crucial for any company as we move further into 2021. One other thing you should do is review your business security arrangements. This will allow you to detect any vulnerabilities or to make sure the security measures you have in place are up to scratch.

But what areas should you focus on reviewing now?

Perimeter fencing

From data centre security to offices, waterworks, warehouses and beyond, perimeter fencing plays a key role in protecting your staff, visitors, stock and buildings. Now is the ideal time to review your current security fencing arrangements and take action if needed. Take time to conduct an audit of your fencing, so you can pick up on any sections which are broken or need replacing or a security risk. It is also key to pick up on any areas which do not have fencing at all and are easy to access for intruders.

Business Security Review – your visitor policy

Security fencing is superb at keeping out people who should not be on your site, but it can’t do anything about people who are allowed access in error! Many companies have a visitor policy which is either non-existent or not stringent enough. In some cases, the policy is fine but staff do not enforce it properly. Be sure to look your visitor policy over and make any updates needed as we move into 2021. It is also worth a gentle email reminder to staff about what the policy is and how vital it is to follow it.

Online security

The threat of cyber-crime is something that grows with each passing year. It is now just as key to stay safe online as it is in the real world. With this in mind, why not look at your online security plan and make sure it is robust enough for the coming 12 months? As well as ensuring there are no gaps for hackers to exploit, this will mean you know when renewals for things like anti-virus subscriptions are due.
