Keeping your Business safe in 2022
As the world moves towards 2022, security has never been more in demand. Whether it is physical or online, there are deeply unpleasant individuals around that would take as much advantage as they can from any badly maintained security situation they come across.
It is important to provide end-user security training for your employees so that they can keep themselves safe as well as your business and the customers that you serve.
This can be in the form of passwords and security codes that should not be shared, be regularly changed, and not be anything to do with any personal information easily obtainable from social media profiles, such as pet names, places of personal interest, or connection.
Make sure that they understand the necessity of acquiring a strong password as well as what a strong password actually is. Going through additional training on what to do should they find a member of the public wandering around your business site unaided is also another area that should be addressed as well as what the consequences are should your business fail in its attempt at keeping everyone involved in it safe and free from harm either in the physical, mental or online.
With cybercriminals becoming more and more cunning and ruthless in order for them to gain the information that they need to make their money, online security is vitally important in today’s world.
With this in mind, having the services of an experienced and well-established IT business looking after your cybersecurity is a must. Being able to complete risk assessments so preventative action can be taken quickly or risk totally negated is more than desirable. Should the worst happen, and you are targeted by the cybercriminals, having an experienced IT support team at your back working fast to get your business up and running while protecting your data will feel like a godsend and a very wise investment.
Check your site
When you are thinking about security, it may do well to check your business site to make sure that your premises and all your workforce are safe from intruders. This could mean putting up a fence or having a gated entry with swipe cards for your workforce’s safety, or it could just mean putting key-coded entry pads on your external doors and lanyards with chaperons for visitors while they are on site.
It is a very good idea to have floodlighting put around your parking area and outside your premises so that your employees are at no time having to leave or enter your site in the dark. This can be more than a safety issue than you think, as it will keep your employees safe while they are walking across your parking area as well as when they are getting in or out of their vehicles.
You may feel that your workforce and indeed your business would benefit highly from a security guard or team thereof on your site in order to keep all of your business, workers, and visitors safe from harm.
