Whether you own or operate a business, it is important to protect sensitive information and to ensure that your office or building is safe and secure. Vigilante Security’s commercial business security systems will make your employees feel more at ease. Here are 7 tips that you can practice to increase your protection.
Code of Conduct
This should be a document that outlines proper behavior within the office and should state the repercussions for violations. Code of Conducts don’t need to contain behavior for everything but should detail information on how to properly protect company property and how to keep personal information safe. The best way to encourage employees to use the Code of Conduct is to make it easily accessible to them.
Many documents that are printed in an office contain client’s personal information or confidential business information. The best way to ensure that this information doesn’t get into the wrong hands is to have it shredded. Setting a reoccurring shred date allows employees to get used to the practice and learn to set aside sensitive information.
To keep business and client documents even more secure it is recommended to hold annual audits. This will allow management to know what documents are being kept by employees in paper and digitally. These audits will allow companies to know what can be improved to keep sensitive information secure.
Whether you are a small company or a large corporation it is important to designate a username for each employee. This will allow you to manage the access level of every employee and ensure unauthorized changes are not made. Companies should stress to employees the importance of protecting their passwords and should require them to be changed every 30 to 45 days.
It is important to keep all employees safe in the case of an emergency. Companies are recommended to ensure employees are aware of emergency plans in the case of fire, robberies, theft or tornadoes. Evacuation plans should be outlined and displayed in a prominent area.
Placing safety measures into your office before an incident occurs is the best way to limit the amount of damages to your facility. Investing in a good security company is recommended so your employees and building are protected around the clock.
Adequate lighting is important for both the inside and outside of a building. It’s important to leave a light on at night, to allow police or security to see the room. This precaution is simple but it not only keeps your facility safe but also keeps employees safe if there is any need for them to work late.
