Cybersecurity

Here at Business Security Camera of Orange County we know that a lot of business owners already have cameras setup watching their employees and businesses. But during this tough time most businesses are shut down and the employees are working from home, which brings up more cyber fraud and hacking. 

 

 

Canadian Security has created a blog post, Cybersecurity for the home-based worker

 

“So now’s also the time to also send communications to employees reminding them about basic cyber hygiene best practices, including how to spot social engineering scams – unique to COVID-19 and otherwise – that may appear in inboxes as fraudulent emails, links, or attachments and what steps to take if they encounter one. I’d encourage companies to reach out weekly to their remote workforce with cyber education material and reminders on guidelines put in place to help them remain safe while remote.”

 

Some questions this post poses are:

  •     What should IT departments tell their employees about virtual work/cybersecurity at this time?
  •     Is home Wi-Fi secure enough to handle potentially sensitive workplace info?
  •     How can IT departments equip staffers for home work, especially on short notice or with limited resources?
  •     What are businesses doing if they are not currently set up for mobile work (i.e. using desktops or terminals vs. laptops)?

 

Can you answer those questions?

Why You Should Consider Both Indoor and Outdoor Cameras for Your Business

If you already have indoor cameras in your business, you only halfway serve your workers and customers. Exterior cameras are equally important for keeping the perimeter of your business safe. Discover why your business needs both indoor and outdoor cameras, even if you work in a high rise or don't have direct street access.

Why You Need Interior Cameras

Interior cameras help with protecting your inventory from theft or to show evidence in case of criminal acts inside your store. You can even use security cameras to see if unauthorized persons enter forbidden areas.

These security cameras only cover half the space around your business. While most businesses have interior cameras, not enough consider the need for having outdoor cameras, too.

Why You Cannot Neglect Outdoor Cameras

Outdoor cameras do more than just watch the door to your business. Of course, you want to see who comes and goes through your business's entry points, but you should also have cameras watching the parking lot and space outside your business.

For example, if your business has dumpsters behind the building, you should have cameras watching that area to keep workers who take trash out safer. Additionally, if criminals use the space around your dumpsters for their deeds, you can provide footage to the police as evidence.

If you have a parking lot, security cameras watching the area can provide information to law enforcement in case cars get broken into or people get assaulted. The cameras will make the area outside your business safer for both your workers and customers.
