3 ways to keep your Tech business safe


When you think about security for a tech business, your mind is likely to turn straight away to cyber security and keeping your data (and that of your customers) safe from those with malicious intent. Of course, this is vitally important, as a successful attack can bring a premature end to your business and tarnish your reputation for years to come, but online security is not the whole story.

With cybersecurity becoming a very important concern for businesses of all shapes and sizes, the need to identify and eliminate digital vulnerabilities is critical. Even if you are a business that is looking to move to a new office, you need to make sure that you are hiring specialists or experts for IT asset relocation. The slightest mistake or carelessness on your part can expose your organization to data breaches.

There are some key steps you need to take when it comes to physical security to keep your business and, more importantly, the people who work for you safe as well. While this, understandably, might not be at the front of your mind when you are putting together your budget for the next 12 months, if you choose to overlook this key area, you might well regret it.

Key card entry

In the same way, you might restrict employees’ digital access to areas they have no business being. You can do exactly the same thing with them physically as well. This will only allow people who you want to be in the building (or even in the parking lot) in the first place, making it easier to ensure everyone’s personal security.

This also overlaps neatly with protecting access to your tech because if somebody can gain access to your building, it can nullify any online efforts you may have made. As an added benefit, you will also be able to track your workforces’ movements in the building to help spot any disaffected employees and the threat they pose to your business.

Deter possible vandals

Although groups of people hanging around outside your business are not always intent on vandalism or theft, it can make your staff uncomfortable and does not give a good impression to any customers or potential business partners who have dropped by for a face-to-face meeting.
The technology available from can, once in place, deter groups from congregating at or near the front or rear of your premises. It is a solution that is certainly cheaper than having a security guard or an understandably reluctant employee goes out to move them on, and considerably less confrontational.

Correct lighting in outside areas

Now those areas are free from groups, you still need to do whatever you can to ensure that your workforce can safely get to their cars from the office building. Parking lots are the place where many thefts and assaults take place, so it is important to keep them secure.


As well as restricting entry, it can also be useful to make sure the area is well lit, especially with lighting that is motion-activated. Not only will this deter those that wish harm to your employees, it has the added benefit of cutting down the chances of a trip or fall and the ensuing problems that will cause not only to your employee but also to your business through possible lawsuits.
