When trying to improve the security profile of a premises, it is important that you understand the risks the premises is under. A big corporate office, with customer information, or even privileged information in a law office, requires vastly different security products and procedures than a retail premises, with them requiring technological support which is both more advanced and more difficult to subvert.
This is not to say that security isn’t a big issue for retail premises; in fact the quantity of risk is likely far higher, but the quality is typically lacking. Disrupting any thieves or vandals is the primary concern of any retail premises; which is actually solved rather simply. Through the use of a few different products, you can quickly make the retail premises inaccessible for many nefarious people:
Security Shutters: This is something you’ll see in the front of many businesses when they are closed. It isn’t something which you’ll want in use when you’re open, as it will disrupt the view for people passing by, but it is essential for when you’re closed, as it will act as a first-line defence against any vandals seeking to graffiti on the building or damage your windows.
Surveillance Systems: There is a massive variety of surveillance systems out there, but all you need to be certain of is that you can record the data (preferably for long periods of time), and that their can be multiple cameras hooked up to the same system.
Alarm Systems: This is necessary as well, as it allows you to get an immediate response from the police. You can get a system which is hooked up to the surveillance system, so that it is alerted whenever you’re not there, or you can have a system which allows you to manually alert the police when you are there.
