Let's face it, when we feel secure, we tend to forget the little things that make us safe in the first place, like locking our doors for example. We can get back to being aware by using these tips to form a safety checklist.
✅ 1. Lock Your Doors and Safes
Just last year our area was plagued with street-side burglaries because people did not lock their car doors when they went inside. If you have locks: use them! You might as well say “come on in” to anyone looking for an easy payday. To take your security to the next level, ensure you have the most up-to-date deadbolts and locking mechanisms on your doors and safes.
✅ 2. Secure Computer and Data Systems
Lack of computer and data security systems is an easy access point for hackers to steal business and digital information, like credit card numbers for example. A data breach on this level would leave your business devastated. You must be proactive to protect sensitive data by using the most current cyber-security measures and effective passwords.
✅ 3. Conceal Your Security Cameras
Don’t let your security cameras be one wire clip away from being useless. Make sure that all your cameras have inaccessible wires, and if possible, use discreet security camera placement – out of sight, out of mind. Check out tip #4 to learn about a discreet security camera!
✅ 4. Have Working Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Detectors
If you have a lack of working smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, then your business and home is at risk. You have a duty to protect your family, employees and customers, so having working detectors is crucial. Did you know that there are smoke detector cameras? Check them out here:
✅ 5. Safe Social Networking
Nowadays it’s easy to follow someone from afar because of how connected we are through social media. Posting that you are going to be gone from your home for an extended period of time is an open invitation to burglars. Make sure you are smart in what you post.
