Companies across the country are taking extraordinary steps to protect their employees in the wake of the global outbreak of COVID-19. Efforts such as incorporating remote work or cutting back on business hours are allowing people to self-quarantine and practice social distancing.
An unfortunate reality of this temporary transition to remote work, shorter business hours, and closed facilities is the increased threat of crime now facing these under or unoccupied buildings. Remaining people, property, and inventory are all left uniquely vulnerable and will remain at risk until businesses are able to return to the status quo.
There will be those looking to take advantage of these uncertain times, and while these changes to business norms are in effect, criminals will undoubtedly attempt to exploit:
All of which leaves inventory, equipment, and buildings vulnerable to break-ins, theft, and vandalism.
Businesses can take action to protect themselves against these emerging threats. Just as staff may be moving to remote work, so too can security be managed remotely using existing security equipment at a very high level of effectiveness.
By leveraging existing security cameras and making sure that they are functioning, angled correctly, and properly maintained, as well as ensuring the functionality of other security equipment, businesses can guard against these temporary vulnerabilities.
