In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months. This is when many of us take a hard look at what worked and what did not, complete performance reviews, and formulate plans for the coming year. For me, it is all of those things plus a time when I u...
Business Security: What Needs to Be Covered and Why
Businesses of all sizes have something within their premises that has significant financial value

Businesses of all sizes will have something within their premises which will have significant financial value. The typical office will have a number of computers, a server, numerous items of hardware such as mice and keyboards, a printer and plenty of office furniture. Protecting all that is imperative for any business, but it will take a variety of steps to keep everything safe.

Aside from what can actually be seen in an office, there's all the files stored within each computer or on the office server that need to be protected too, as well as all the pieces of paperwork which have plenty of worth. To keep all that safe, you need to consider doing the following:

Keep safe in the cloud
Although a recent innovation, cloud computing is something which a growing number of companies are using in order to communicate with clients, work remotely and to collaborate on important projects. The cloud has become integral to the way in which many businesses work, but in terms of security, some of the kinks have yet to be fully worked out.

When using the cloud, some providers have stated that in order to keep safe, a physical solution is required. CEO of cloud computing firm Egnyte Vineet Jain said just that, and also implored businesses to consider file encryption, use of two-step logins and installing a comprehensive anti-malware program on every single device in order to keep every file on the cloud from being stolen.

Labeling effectively
At first glance, any labels which are placed upon any business's most important pieces of technology might seem ineffective, but that's not the case at all. Asset labels can prove to be surprisingly useful in keeping all your company holds dear safe from the threat of loss, damage and theft. They're useful for more than just computers - printers, scanners, servers and even furniture can use them.

The main reason why asset labels are useful from a security viewpoint is their ability to be traceable in the event of theft. As each label has a unique code on it, it can be tracked as soon as it goes missing. Using void labels can be effective too as they can indicate even minor tampering. They have two layers - one being a typical holographic label, and the other saying the word ‘void' repeatedly.

Install an alarm system
An alarm system should be a feature of every office, shop, warehouse and storage space. As deterrents against thieves come, they're among the most effective. Having an alarm system which covers every inch of a business's premises is imperative, but on its own, it might not be all that effective, and may need beefing up to some extent.

To do that, adding a CCTV system to work alongside the alarm could be important. Providing that someone's monitoring the CCTV at all times, it's possible that any unwelcome intruders could be caught out before they manage to enter the premises. Reporting to the police will be easier too, as it's possible to get video proof of an attempted break-in.
