This is a collaborative blog post.

It’s a good idea to take a look at your company’s security system and find ways to improve upon its efficiency and effectiveness. With that being said, here are some simple tips for upgrading your security as a business this year.

Introduce advanced CCTV systems

If you’ve got some outdated CCTV systems in place that are low-resolution or continue to develop faults, then introducing advanced CCTV systems is worth the investment. There’s a lot that’s evolved in technology over the years and many CCTV systems that were once ahead of their time, have fallen behind. 


It means that should something happen, you can get clear and detailed footage instead of the grainy footage that seems to be the norm nowadays for most footage captured. If you don’t have CCTV fitted within your business yet, then you’re certainly playing fate and putting your business at real risk.

Make use of cyber defence systems

To help improve your defences online, it’s worthwhile finding some cyber defence software for your desktops and any other computer devices used by staff. From firewalls to encryption, it’s all necessary to have in place to protect your business from cybercriminals.


Cyber crimes are becoming increasingly popular now, which is why you should have a strong defence system in place, even if you’re not totally online as a business. Even a small digital footprint is enough for cybercriminals to scope out a weakness and exploit it.

Get insurance for digital crimes

Talking of digital crimes, it’s worth considering insurance coverage for such crimes taking place. As the internet isn’t policed, it means that there are a lot of crimes that can be gotten away with, without any consequences for those who commit the crime.


Take a look at the various insurance coverages available to help improve and strengthen your company’s systems online. That way, should anything go wrong, you’ve got some financial backing to cover any losses.

Strengthen entry and exits to the building

To help strengthen your business premises, consider what security you have in place for your entry and exits. Do you have security on the doors? Is it needed? Or perhaps a key fob entry and exit system are appropriate? Perhaps you need both?


The more you can strengthen the entry and exit to your building, the safer your employees will feel as a result and that’s important.

Train your staff to be vigilant and experienced

Your staff is important and valued members of the team, which means they’re also partly responsible for keeping the business safe. Make sure you’ve given your team all of the protective resources and training to be vigilant and experienced in all dangers both online and offline.


These tips will help improve the security of your business and upgrades are necessary to do every so often.
