Why You Should Review Your Business Security During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Our business’s security can often slip to the back of our minds – we set the alarm at night, and pretty much forget about it until something goes wrong. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused huge shifts for businesses in so many ways, one of which is around security. Keeping your business, office, or warehouse safe has now become a top priority with some businesses remaining closed, and an increase in theft and vandalism as spaces are left unmonitored.
Now more than ever, it’s an important opportunity to review your business’s current security system and determine where you may need to add additional elements to keep your property and people safe from harm.
Assess Your Current Security System
Your business has likely changed since you first installed your security system. Have staff come and gone, has inventory moved from one location to another, or has the demographics of your neighbourhood changed?
Take a look at what you currently have installed, from alarm systems to security cameras and even access control. This will help determine where there may be some gaps in your security where you may need additional equipment or services.
Some things to look out for include:
- Security cameras that are not high definition
- Security cameras that are not recording or collecting footage
- Entrances or exits that are not integrated with your alarm system
- Areas in your business where high-value items or information is stored which need to be protected
Determine What Needs Enhancement
Having an up-to-date security system helps keep your inventory, information, and staff safe 24/7. Once you’ve assessed your current security system, there may be some obvious opportunities for improvement. However, it is always beneficial to consult with an expert to make sure that there isn’t anything missing that could make a positive impact on your business’s security! The team at Bullet Security has years of experience working in commercial security and can help quickly identify any weaknesses in your security while recommending specific products that would work best for your space.

Each community and neighbourhood presents unique diversity in Victoria, but there are also changing security risks across the city that only a local professional would know how to respond to.
