Feb 02, 2018
Before you make any new security additions to your current security system, you should make sure that the new measures are tightening up your security rather than adding new threats. Defining the level of security your organization needs can be a difficult task especially with the number of factors one needs to consider. Here are some useful pointers that would help you evaluate your current system and get you up and running towards a thoroughly thought-out security system.
Quantifying your Assets:
Every organization has assets that need safeguarding from marauders. But, deciding which asset gets what level of security can be an arduous undertaking. The simple solution around this conundrum is to quantify the value of the asset, and then make sure the cost of the security measure does not outweigh the value of the asset.Hotel equipment, guest luggage, staff belongings, and other materials are some of the assets that need protection in the Hotel and Spa business.
Brand and Reputation:
In the big world filled with so many thefts and intrusions, people have grown to appreciate good security services. Your customers won’t mind paying a bit extra for a safe and secure service. So, it’s indeed vital that you not only protect the assets of your employees and company, but also the interests of your customers. If you’re in the Hotel Management business, even a single security breach can leave a mark on your reputation and will lead your customers to think twice before approaching your Hotel. Protecting the stature of your brand and maintaining the reputation is very necessary in order to thrive in today’s business world.
The Human Factor:
It has been observed that 50% of the security breaches take place due to an internal culprit, so it is wise to keep an eye on what happens inside your company. Your in-house security measures should be just as good as your strongholds against outsiders. It is a tough call to suspect your employees and staff members; however, such as the role of the security team, who should give the security of the company and its assets a high priority. Solus Security Systems has tremendous experience in providing the best technology to monitor your company’s in-house proceedings.
The provision of basic security measures is a mandate when confidential information such as medical records of employees and customers, personal information of employees and customers, and other sensitive information is involved. The government has issued a number of safety laws that companies need to follow when dealing with sensitive customer information.
These are the four important points that should get you up and running when you evaluate your security measures. There are plenty of other aspects one needs to consider, depending upon the location of your company, number of employees, type of business, and what kind of assets you wish to protect.
