Are You Forgoing Physical Security at Your Business?
While firewalls and antivirus protect you from hackers, you must have some sort of physical security system in place to combat thieves. Recently, a law firm gave their confidential information to a con artist who bought a Comcast Cable shirt off of eBay. He then played up the part and entered the office building asking to view their modems. Once inside, he stole their passwords. If anyone had thought to ask for ID or call Comcast Cable, then this could’ve been avoided.
Don’t let this happen to you. Here’s What You Can Do:
- Set up a security camera system to run 24/7. You’ll be able to see who’s accessing what parts of the building as well as monitoring for thieves in the night. We can help with this!
- Require identification when guests arrive. You may even want your staff to have a company badge. This will help them when they’re going to clients’ offices.
- Create a company policy for visitors detailing what parts of the building they’re allowed in or not allowed in.
- Set up card authentication doors in the office. If you’re worried about an insider accessing your server room, then create code or card authentication. This will also help if you have a rogue employee who’s trying to access information to either steal or sell to another company.
