Who’s at Risk and Why?

It has been estimated that 10% of all potential threats come from current or future customers who visit your property. That represents 1 in 10 people who have or will commit a theft through intrusion, burglary or shop-lifting a product of some kind.  It is also estimated that 30% of all non-violent crimes are committed by persons with some type of disorder; depression, psychological or social issue. Unfortunately these potential threats could be coming from your employees and customers. These statistics are scary considering the sheer numbers involved and the vulnerability all business owners face in the mist of this crisis. So, with all this mounting evidence what are the steps every business owner should employ to meet these challenges. First, review your existing security system to identify any opportunities to upgrade or remain what we call “security sound” with the sophistication now being employed to hack or counter-manned your security measures. Second, identify any breaches or system weaknesses that might exist, especially in the form of the communication links and ongoing monitoring structure.  Third, have an independent, commercial security expert, a third-party, review your security design and provide you with additional measures or add-on products that will enhance your security protection. The majority of business loss is due to theft, internal and external.

Video Surveillance and Videofied Products

All effective security strategies begin with a proper threat assessment to include areas where a possible security breach might take place. Since most businesses operate within a premises structure, (brick and mortar) securing within and without is the first step. Video Surveillance protection and monitoring is one way to determine the areas of traffic that could involve a vulnerability. Secondly, video also provides a real-time monitoring structure employees and customers alike can readily identify with causing all to be on their best behavior because their actions are being monitored. At ESI we have seen first-hand the incidences of theft being reduced by the installation of a video/CCTV product being employed by our customers. At ESI we have worked in every type of industry providing security protection by our highly trained and experienced technicians. For all after-hours protection, we have employed the new video and motion detector product called Videofied. This motion detector activates a real-time, live video feed, so that when triggered, the detection can be verified. Since 90% of all activated alarms are false alarms, this is an incredible way of identifying and verifying a non-false alarm is in progress. This is especially important for commercial properties who have limited security measures in place after-hours such as construction sites, all brick and mortar facilities, transport sites, distribution and warehouse perimeter security.
