Alarm System: No matter what kind of business you are in, there is something of
value within your facility that a criminal will fence for drugs. Everything
from products you sell, to warehouse items, maintenance tools, phone systems,
office furniture, computers and the company safe.
Cameras: Whether you are protecting the perimeter of the property from vandals
or thieves or protecting the inventory from theft, or even the cash register
from sweethearting or robbery, security cameras are an essential component to
business security system.
Continuity: Having a data backup locally is essential. Having a data backup in
the cloud is fundamental. And having a backup for all your network operations
either at a remote facility or accessible in the cloud is an insurance policy
no small business should do without.
Technology: A comprehensive information security plan that involves encrypting
all sensitive data, ongoing critical security patches, antivirus protection,
antispyware, firewalls (both software and hardware) and a secure Internet
gateway are critical to preventing costly data breaches.
Mobile Fleet: Managing digital devices such as mobile phones, tablets,
thumbdrives and any other portable device that stores or communicates data can
be the equivalent of herding cats if not done right. IT managers must have security policies in
place to deal with and manage devices attached to the network in some way. Many
security vendors provide comprehensive solutions to keep track of, lock down,
and secure devices.
