Keeping Important Items Safe

In recent years, the security measures employed by both commercial businesses and government agencies have come under increased scrutiny due to their failure to keep important information secure. These days, it’s a challenge to keep important documents and other items from falling into the wrong hands. In this blog, we’re going to take a look at a few ways to keep those documents or items safe.
• Surveillance- A watchful eye deters theft. Situational awareness is the first and most important means of stopping a document from walking out the door. A closed-circuit television surveillance system (CCTV) is the best way to make sure there are eyes on important areas even when people can’t physically be there. Importantly, in the event that a theft occurs, a properly placed system of cameras can ensure that the culprit is identified, and the loss can be recovered quickly. In the past decade or so, prices on CCTV systems have come down drastically, they are so affordable that, despite being developed for commercial use, many homeowners have chosen to implement them as well.
• A Safe- Safes are an age-old means of keeping their contents, well, safe. There are certainly different factors to consider when purchasing. Do you need it to be waterproof? Fireproof? Bolted down? Hidden? Safes come in all sizes and variations, so whether storing a few papers or an entire jewelry cabinet, your needs can be accommodated. A safe can have various means of entry as well; they can use keys, combinations, pin codes or fingerprints to be opened. Safes are difficult to crack, but unfortunately, few are impenetrable. They are, however, an important part of a plan to keep items secure.
• Limited Access- By limiting who goes where you can help eliminate the possibility of a person slipping away with something kept to limited access. If, for example, you only allow those you trust to access a given room or area that houses confidential documents, those documents are much less likely to disappear, if they do, you start with a short list of who may have taken them.
