Why is business security important?
If you own a small to medium-sized business in the Oxford area, you might not be too worried about the risk of break-ins and burglaries? Unfortunately according to a recent report, wholesale and retail businesses with 50 or more employees experienced over 280,000 incidents of crime per 1,000 premises in 2017 alone. On average, this equates to each wholesale and retail business with 50 or more employees experiencing over 5 crimes per week. These are worrying figures that are predicted to rise with cuts to the police force and other public services.
Luckily, there are plenty of preventative measures that you can easily put in place that will safeguard your Oxfordshire business. The more you invest in improving your business's security, the less likely you will be targeted by opportunistic or organised criminals. Let's look at 5 key security measures and why incorporating them into your business security plan will make all the difference in avoiding criminal attacks.
