Small Business Security Tips

On September 10, 2022, In Safety Tips,

In 2010 there were roughly 28 million small businesses in the entire United States of America. While this number has fluctuated within the past 6 years, the fact is that we have a ton of small businesses out there. As a small business owner, so much of your time, money, and energy has been developed to simply make your business run every day.

Whether you provide a service or product, staying on top of your business security is extremely important. Below are some tips you should ensure are implemented into your business plans.

Adequate Lighting

Having enough lighting is very important not only inside your building but also outside of your building. During the night and especially when you leave, ensure you have enough lighting inside and outside of your business. Lighting covering your doorways and parking lots will help prevent any potential threats.

Emergency Plans

Whether you are at home or in the office, you should always have emergency plans for different situations. Know what to do in the case of fire, robberies, theft, or major storms.

You should also keep your team in the loop, so they understand and know what to do in each situation.

Strong Passwords

People often use passwords that are easy to remember but stay away from obvious ones that others can guess. Also, try to change them up. 47% of people actually use the same password for 5 straight years, so other people most likely know what you are using.

Public Wifi

You may not know it, but public wifi is extremely unsafe for mobile devices. Hackers can actually go through it to attack personal accounts. Never do any of your banking and online transactions on a public network.

Video Surveillance

Video cameras placed in and outside your business are extremely helpful in giving you proper security, limited shrinkage, improved customer service, and other operational efficiencies.

Burglar & Theft Protection

Someone must look out for you when your business is closed, and everyone is home for the night. With a Wayne Alarm security system, your business can be monitored 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
