Before hiring a security company, there are several different questions you should ask first to determine whether or not a security firm is the right fit for protecting your business. It is important to make sure that the company you choose has the resources and know-how to effectively secure your place of work. Before signing any contracts, you should ask any security companies you are considering the following questions...
How Do They Incorporate New Technology?
Any security company worth their salt will constantly be integrating cutting-edge technology into their existing security strategies as new equipment is developed. If the company you are considering is not up to date with the latest advancements and technology, they will be unable to protect your workplace as effectively as other security firms.
When you do find a security company that prides themselves on staying up to date with security technology advancements and using state-of-the-art equipment, the next question to ask is whether they provide consulting services. It is important to discuss what security technology should be set up in your building with a security consultant so that you can determine how to best protect your business together. Make sure you check whether or not any security companies you are considering provide consulting and implementation services such as:
- Safety and Security Consultation
- System Planning and CAD Design
- Turnkey System Installation
- Fire/Commercial Alarms and Detection
- Life Safety and Communications
- CCTV Surveillance Systems
- Access Control Systems
- GPS Services/Interactive Services
- Central Station Monitoring
- Data Network Infrastructure
Do They Offer Security Training Services?
In order to ensure that your business is as secure as possible, you should consider having your employees trained for various security threats. If one of your employees does not have ample computer security training, they may unknowingly leave your system vulnerable to cyberattacks. Some helpful types of security training for your employees that you should ask potential security companies include:
- Active Shooter
- CPR/First Aid
- Automatic External Defibrillators
- Computer Security Training Programs
- Social Networking Sites Training Programs
- Personal Protection/Self-Defense Training
- Travel Security Training Programs
What Type of Companies do You Have Experience Serving?
Some corporate security companies specialize in protecting certain types of businesses. The same strategies that work for residential security will not be as effective when protecting a hospital. If the security company you are considering typically only offer security solutions for hotels, then they might not be the right fit to protect your business.
