Creating a Security Plan For Your Business

29 October 2018

It’s important for every growing business to not just create a security plan, but refine it, so you’re constantly improving protection for your assets, staff and customers. That said, you should not rush through this process. Take some time to understand your company’s goals, security needs and how often your security should be updated.

Perform an audit 

No matter how big or small your company is, you should review the security measures you currently have in place. Identify your assets and the information that needs to be protected, including hardware, software, documentation and data. Review the threats and risks that can occur in the workplace too. The goal with an audit is to leave no stone unturned; so do take the time to consider all areas of your business. This could be a monumental task and in that situation it’s best to seek outside help from an SIA accredited company such as Enrova.

 

Recognise your priorities and set deadlines

It does take time to research, plan and create a security plan for your business, so initially it’s best to set out your priorities. You may have some very specific security concerns in mind, such as making sure data and information is kept safe, or perhaps you desperately need to hire or recruit experienced security officers to ensure your customers feel safe and secure at all times. Whatever your priorities are, set out deadlines early on and be very clear on who you’re assigning each task to. 

 

Execute tasks

If there are certain security measure you can put in place very quickly and easily without any outside help, it makes sense to start executing these tasks as early as possible.

 

Monitor and tweak
