When a company has a security breach or a close call, it’s often times a call-to-action to implement a new or upgraded security or surveillance solution. The challenge isn’t in deciding to become more secure, but rather, determining exactly what solution will fit your company’s needs.
A comprehensive security solution will contain both physical and technological measures that are designed to keep your information and premises safe and secure. Video surveillance and access control, along with traditional technology protections will serve as a comprehensive, multi-network defense mechanism.
An excellent article from industry leader Allegion outlines the boxes that must be checked when upgrading or installing a security solution. A thorough approach to security will contain elements of prevention, detection, investigation, and compliance.
The prevention component can include facets of access control – how limiting a company is about physical access to the facilities – as a means to enhance security. Additionally, IT departments use firewalls and other security measures to limit and monitor access to their information systems.
Having a state-of-the-art surveillance system that captures and stores video images is crucial in the detection portion of a security solution. Being able to monitor the comings and goings of a facility from anywhere has become mandatory for companies concerned with detecting a security threat. A good system also includes alerts when a camera is offline or if there is a computer threat or hack.
Investigating a breach or a hack after the fact is made much easier by having software and systems installed to provide evidence to authorities after the fact. This could come in the form of stored video surveillance images or a computer trail of log-in attempts from an unauthorized source.
Finally, a solid security solution will include systems that allow schools and healthcare facilities the ability to comply with government regulations and maintain patient confidentiality. Student attendance tracking and monitoring provide data that can be submitted to government agencies and hospitals and clinics can better monitor their patients progress more efficiently.
