Group of people planning their commercial security

Every day, the world around us changes, and with those changes come new changes to commercial security needs. As you evaluate the status of your business’ security, there are three questions that every business owner should ask themselves when it comes to making decisions for future security measures. These straightforward commercial security questions will help make the process easier and lead to better results when it comes to securing your location and staff.

1.    What Changes Have You Seen in Your Business Over the Previous Year?

Identifying the changes your business has taken over the year will help you identify any new commercial security needs your business now needs as a result. In the last year, several businesses have seen many major changes in their operations due to COVID as some employees moved to working from home or some kind of hybrid format. Other common changes we have seen from workplaces over the last year include:

  • Changed Room Spacing
  • Shift Staggering
  • Traffic Flow Changes

You will want to evaluate how these changes and events from the past year have affected the processes of the workplace and what new security weaknesses you have noticed as a result.

2. What Measures are Needed to Address These New Needs?

Once you have been able to address what the needs of your business are, you will want to ask yourself what you can do to fix these security vulnerabilities at your workplace. When it comes to commercial security, there are various options that can be implemented as a solution to any weaknesses in your operations, you just need to find the right one for your needs. Through research or by consulting with a reputable security team, you will find commercial security options such as video surveillance, access control, or video analytics that can serve as solutions to the current problems your company may be facing.

3. What is Your Commercial Security Budget?

We are often led to believe that we need the newest, most advanced commercial security solutions to address our needs, but the reality is that those solutions often cost more money and there is usually a more affordable solution that still addresses the problem.

When looking into ways to address the security vulnerabilities you have found, always start with a budget in mind and know where those funds will come from. Knowing the amount of money you have available from the beginning will help to drive the decision-making process and prevent overspending on a security system that isn’t right, or more than you need.

Once You Have Your Answers…

After you have taken the time to identify the answers to all of these questions, it’s time to take action. When acting on your commercial security measures, you will want to ensure that you are making the right decisions to get a reliable system as a result.
