Thefts in an office can lead to much more than just plain monetary loss.
It can involve data loss and also loss of office secrets and confidential files from the office. Hence it is imperative that there should be a very secure and reliable system of security in your office.
The first vulnerable point is always the entrance. You should make sure that no one enters the office unless they have a valid authorization. All employees should have entry cards, all other entries by people should be noted down and checked. Any service personnel who come to your office should have valid ID’s and their equipment should be checked.
All important documents should be placed inside a safe or kept behind lock and key. If anyone leaves their office even for a short while they should make sure that their laptops are inside a cupboard or out of sight.
Security cameras throughout the office will not only give you a record of who is entering or leaving the office, they also act as a preventive against break-ins.
All unfamiliar people entering the office should be gently questioned as to who they would like to meet. In this way you will not only be helping genuine visitors but also scaring away those who are not there for any valid reason.
