However, when it comes to a physical security strategy, luck doesn’t cut it. Unfortunately, some business leaders don’t realize how important security is until an incident occurs. We call this the “wait and see approach”.
Some businesses would rather not invest in security tools in order to save some cash up-front. The problem? It’s like leaving the front door of your house unlocked and hoping no one walks in.
You’re better off locking the door. And in the case of business security, you need to be prepared before – not after – trouble strikes.
Don’t Rely on Luck
Forgoing physical security altogether is an invitation for thieves – and they will take notice. Thieves often scout locations before they strike and they’ll be more likely to take action if basic security measures like video cameras, proper fencing and locks aren’t in place.
Additionally, some businesses may wonder if a single security incident will really be that impactful. The short answer is yes: a single incident could make or break a business.
Thieves could steal something as simple as a power drill, or as costly as a brand-new car. Worse yet, they could cause vandalism or damage to the business that could result in downtime while repairs are made, or you could be forced to close temporarily.
Theft has a direct impact on your business’s bottom line, as we saw in our 2023 State of Physical Security report.
