Evaluating Your Facility With a Security Services Mindset
Security is a major concern for all kinds of businesses, and now is the time to reassess your facility’s security. Here are some ways to look at your security strategy from a security services point of view.

As we approach the end of 2020, people from all walks of life are thinking back on this year’s events. Many business owners are also looking forward and considering ways to improve after the challenges and changes of 2020. Security is a major concern for all kinds of businesses, and now is the time to reassess your facility’s security. The next time you walk through your place of business, try to look at things from a security services perspective. Where are you most vulnerable? Which threats are likely? How can you address those threats? The security services experts at CES Security are standing by to help you protect your property, employees, and visitors.

Security Services Basics: Examine Your Facility’s Layout

You probably know your building better than almost anyone out there, but this familiarity can have a downside. While you might be focused on back offices and front entrances, potential trespassers and thieves are more likely to try out lesser-known and less-visible points of entry. Walk through your facility with a different goal in mind: look for ways to enter, access valuables, and move around undetected. If you know (or suspect) that your facility is vulnerable, work with a security services company to fortify your security plan.

Evaluate Lighting, Visibility, and Access Control

Next, take a look at your property in the dark. Are there areas that overhead lights do not cover? Do you have fences or pillars that obstruct a clear view? You may want to consider rectifying these issues and bolstering your access control measures by hiring front desk attendants or security guards. These professionals can help limit access to secure areas, provide a valuable visible crime deterrent, and detect and respond to suspicious activity.

Consider Addressing Vulnerabilities With Security Guards, Desk Attendants, and Mobile Patrols
