Here are some easy business security checks to help your business bring in the new year.

As the new year begins and we all look for ways to improve our personal and professional lives, many people forget to consider adding some new business security measures as one of their resolutions. However, it’s an incredibly low-effort high-impact resolution to make! Here are some easy business security checks to help your business bring in the new year.

Do You Have a Business Security Plan in Place?

If you don’t already have a business security plan in place, now is the perfect time to make one. Determining a perimeter security plan involves assessing the four following factors:

  • Assets—What you need to protect (anything of value that you want to guard or keep safe).
  • Vulnerability—Any weaknesses that your business or the assets have, whether it is the lack of a fence or flooding.
  • Threat—Anything that could have a negative effect on one or more of your assets.
  • Safeguard—A way that you can protect those assets by decreasing the vulnerability and potentially eliminating certain threats.


Thankfully, there are many different technological security options to help protect your business’s assets. Your perimeter business security plan can include any combination of the following:

  • Sensors—These can be placed between two different lines of fencing to track any motion. These are not ideal for a business that is surrounded by a lot of trees, shrubbery, or even a lot of wildlife. All of those can lead to a lot of false alarms that will end up annoying you instead of keeping your business safe.
  • Sensors with Buried Cable—These work well when motion sensors aren’t appropriate and the climate doesn’t get too cold. If your climate gets permafrost, these aren’t the best option for you.
  • Lighting—Lighting does many things when it comes to business security, including letting you see any potential intruders and letting them know that you see them.
  • Fencing—Fencing is another crucial part of business security. High security fencing can visually and psychologically make a potential vandal or criminal move on to an easier target.
