When it comes to preventing criminal robberies, always, that is, in 100% of cases, it turns out to be cheaper than trying to recover the loot taken.
One of the most important factors: maintenance
This infamous work, often left aside, ends up being one of the main Achilles heels of any system. It is useless to have sophisticated and innovative security systems if they do not have their preventive maintenance.
When the time comes to act, it is very likely that equipment without maintenance does not work properly, causing its effectiveness at the time of frustrating a real situation to drop considerably.
To keep the systems current, it is recommended to take the following measures:
- Carry out periodic performance tests: carrying out simulations will let us know if the systems will respond to a real unforeseen situation. These trials must be carried out periodically and must have a formal record. In the tests, all the personnel involved must participate and the entire community must participate to understand the protocols to follow. The absence of these tests, the only thing they guarantee is improvisation, which is one of the main enemies of security.
- Carry out the scheduled periodic maintenance suggested by the manufacturer: Physical security service providers indicate, within the specifications of each device, the time in which maintenance must be carried out. These procedures are preventive in nature. This is because given a real situation, the functionalities must be operational with their due registration. It is the responsibility of each internal operations department of each organization to request and keep up-to-date with periodic maintenance. In addition, if a piece of equipment is not operational with its maintenance, this could cause effects regarding the responsibilities, guarantees and policies associated with the infrastructure or protected assets.
Equipment failures are common, but easily reversible. A neglect in periodic maintenance is a vulnerability that you must correct.
At Steel and Security we take care of carrying out maintenance at the appropriate times to ensure that security devices or systems are 100% operational and functional.
Another important factor: information filtering
When a worker colludes with organized crime, things get more complicated. For this, it is important to prevent the handling of information from the beginning. It is not possible for the security information to be freely accessible to anyone in the organization. You must be rigorous in handling this confidential information, clearly defining those responsible for handling this sensitive data.
Change schedules, shifts, information on when the systems are under maintenance, alarm system passwords, is confidential information that must be safeguarded. And although it seems quite intuitive, it is very common to see signs with the passwords stuck on the walls, or workers who handle knowledge that is not their responsibility, leaving the main vulnerabilities visible.
