Top tips for finding the best business security provider.

Posted by:

There are a plethora of companies out there who offer security cover in a variety of guises, and many of them are good, but some are not so good, and only a small minority are really great. We want you to have the best security for your business; the knock on benefits of being fully protected and secured are manifold, and easily outweigh the costs of these services.

Thoroughly examine the credentials of any security company that you are considering; alongside the obvious checks on experience, references and membership of the Security Industry Authority, and possession of relevant ISO and BS accreditations, there are a few less obvious markers:

  1. Do their vehicles have trackers? Fully tracked vehicles are safer, more traceable and give you peace of mind that a patrol vehicle can be with you rapidly when you need it most.
  2. How are keys kept when in their possession? Unless the company have a policy of keeping your keys securely locked in a safe within their vehicle, and have a code system for identifying specific keys, you do not want them to look after your keys!
  3. How are they audited, and do they keep records of audits to prove the security and efficiency of their procedures? A lack of systematic records would suggest either total disorganisation, or that there is something to hide.
