You’re busy wrapping up the holidays and looking forward to the year ahead. Lists of new year’s resolutions for you and your business sit on your desk. Worthwhile commitments to delegate more, look for new networking opportunities, and implement creative marketing plans top this list, but have you thought about your business’s security? Don’t let your plans to catapult your business to new heights get derailed by opportunistic criminals. Make it your new year’s resolution to protect your life’s work— here’s how.
Install or Upgrade Your Security System
Now, more than ever, having a security system for your business is imperative to protecting your property. While looking at the various companies on the market, you want to look at factors such as:
- What types of video surveillance are offered?
- What are their response times?
- Where is their site monitoring located?
If you already have a security system, take a good stock of your current system. Does it have HD cameras? If not, what minimum resolution would a security situation require for your cameras to provide meaningful evidence? Does your current service offer network video recorders with analytics and remote viewing? If not, there is no better time to upgrade.

Other Security Tips for Your Business
- Check the locks on your doors, windows and gates and make sure that they are in good working order.
- If you are closed, stop your mail, newspapers and other deliveries. If you don’t stop them, arrange for someone to pick them up daily.
- Put your lights on a timer. This will help your business appear to be occupied.
- Let your security providers know that you are closed.
