New York business owners and property managers all know that security in commercial settings comes with its fair share of complex, varied and difficult challenges. With many variables to consider, and a multitude of threats to assess, how do you know if you’re doing it right? One way to assess your current security program is to take a step back and look at the big picture. If you notice these signs, it might be time to contact the New York City security professionals at Sentinel to help out.
You notice an increase in security issues
Keep a constant eye on security problems as they occur, and carefully track which issues may be increasing at a given time. These may be long-term trends or seasonal spikes. If you’re seeing an increase in crime at your business, give Sentinel a call!
You notice an increase in crime
Your business’s geographic location may have been ideal initially, but if there’s a sudden increase in crime in your area, your security may not be up to the task like it was years ago. Remember, as crime trends change, your security will have to adapt to those changes!
You notice the elements of your security program aren’t cohesively working together
Your security operation needs to be running smoothly to be most effective. If the parts of your security program are struggling to work together (personnel, access control, emergency planning teams, etc.) then the integrity of your security may be compromised.
You notice other businesses aren’t experiencing the same issues
Take a look at your neighboring businesses. Whether they’re similar to your business or different, consider the efficiency of their security programs and the problems they may be facing. Talk to other business owners to get an idea of how successful their security programs are.
