With current health concerns surrounding the COVID virus spreading throughout much of the world, many businesses are having to adjust operations, reduce hours and staffing, and leave businesses unattended for longer periods. Unfortunately, these changes can mean that businesses are more vulnerable to crimes such as theft and vandalism.
Commercial security needs do not stop because of COVID-19, they become even more relevant. Here are four best practices to keep your business safe and secure during the crisis.
Test Your Security System
Whether your facility is completely closed or has reduced hours, it is important to check all of the components of your security system. For example, you will want to be sure that all video surveillance cameras are online so that you can monitor the property remotely, and that intrusion alarms are working to prevent unlawful entry.
Update Your Emergency Notification List
Staffing availability and changes may necessitate updating your emergency notification list with your security provider and monitoring service.
Make Sure Your Building is Armed
It may seem obvious to lock all doors and windows, but during the normal course of operations, many people use and have access to these areas. If you use an access control system, review your system’s arming and disarming schedules and make appropriate adjustments.
