4 Security Tips to Keep Your Business Safe This Holiday Season

It’s that time of year again! You’ve had the office decorated, planned the Christmas party, and perhaps even sorted out a gift exchange. But have you taken the necessary steps to secure your business for the holiday season?

Here are 4 tips for keeping your workspace, employees, and customers safe, this festive month:
 

1. Review Your Security Policies

The very first thing you should to when securing your business for the holidays is to review your company security policy with your employees.  Hold a meeting to confirm that everyone is on the same page and fully understands the company security procedures.

Some points you may want to discuss include:

  • Rules about inviting guests to your holiday parties/functions
  • Your security action plan in case of an emergency
  • Protocol for locking up valuables and equipment while everyone is away on the holiday break.
  • Your company’s cyber security policy, especially if some people are going to be working remotely over the holidays.

Remember: Running through your security protocol regularly will ensure that your employees are well prepared for any emergency situations that may occur in the workplace.
 

2. Ensure Your Security Equipment is Working

Once you have gone over the company security policy and procedures, you should test all of the security equipment you have to ensure it’s working properly. This includes:

  • Alarm systems
  • AV and other cyber security software
  • Smart locks
  • Access control systems
  • Panic buttons
  • IP surveillance cameras

After you’ve tested all of your security equipment, remember to check to make sure that nothing will obstruct it (eg. holiday decorations).
 

3. Update Your Alarm Company on Special Holiday Hours

Most businesses operate on a different work schedule during the holidays. It’s important to let your alarm company know when your business is closed, so they can keep an eye out for unusual activity. Also, update your emergency call list: if the alarm does go off, the company needs to have the right contact information.
 

4. Be Smart When Using Public WiFi

Checking your business emails using WiFi is not as harmless as it seems. Doing this can mean that your personal information and confidential business data is left vulnerable to theft.

What you should do: If your employees are working remotely over the holidays, you may want to consider protecting your company’s data with a virtual protected network (VPN). This allows you to retrieve resources from your company network without having to physically connect to it.
