Securing your Commercial Property – Where to start
Taking responsibility for securing any building is huge, but even more so when it’s a commercial building and a burglary can impact the livelihood of not just you, but the staff who work for you.
Protecting your business doesn’t have to be complicated, at Brook Security we are experienced in helping businesses identify the best way to secure their premises, we work with many different types of property and can help you pinpoint the risks at your premises.
Here are some tips to help get you started thinking about your business security!
Work with a security specialist that can assess the risks at your commercial property, having responsibility for business security is something that should not be taken lightly. Working with the right security partner at the outset can save time and money in the long run.
Our confidential risk assessment will highlight all the vulnerable points within your commercial building. We will then provide you with a list of options we feel best suit your needs and budget when it comes to security for your business.
Our layered security approach uses a combination of Access Control Systems for business, CCTV, and Security Alarms, building a secure system that will help to keep your premises secure.
Look at the vulnerabilities in your perimeter, we use access control systems to manage who is entering the perimeter, these systems allow you to control access if you or your security team are on site or remotely.
We also look at security cameras covering the open areas, such as car parks, the technology can include number plate recognition should you require it.
We can help you select the right intruder alarm, as part of a layered security system our business alarms can be part of a managed security system, and with trained staff monitoring your business premises you can cut out false alarms and have people who are trained to deal with break-ins and alerting the right services as they happen.
We have access to a wide range of security cameras ideal for commercial properties, the most important thing with CCTV and Security camera placement is putting them in an effective location, not just as a deterrent but as part of the layered security to ensure you have no gaps in the assets you are protecting.
Security Cameras also play a vital role in evidence to help prosecute those who attempt to enter your property and can help in recovering lost assets by identifying those criminal gangs who target businesses like yours,
Well-lit areas will deter potential intruders due to the heightened risk of them being seen. External lighting can also help keep employees safe who are arriving early and leaving late at night when it might be dark.
Commercial property will always need a bespoke approach to security, at Brook we have a long history of working with a wide variety of businesses from commercial units, estates, office buildings and shops. Contact us today for a discussion about your commercial and business security needs!
