Top 5 physical security threats
Natural Disasters: Natural disasters have increased by five over the past 50 years, primarily fueled by climate change. With these disasters only expected to worsen and happen more often, companies need to prioritize more useful security systems to keep their employees and assets safe.
Back to Work / Hybrid: When the pandemic started in early 2020, millions worldwide transitioned from office to home. Suddenly, keeping people safe on the job also meant protecting employees while in their own homes. With some going back to in-office work and others permanently working from home, the physical security of an organization’s employees and their assets has become more complex and requires more attention.
- Crime/Theft: Companies of all sizes are more at risk of burglary, robbery, vandalism, shoplifting, theft, and fraud. An unfortunate trend supporting this increase is the rise of “flash mob” style burglaries.
- Workplace violence: Workplace violence ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and homicide. The four types of relationships that can cause workplace violence typically are worker-on-worker, customer/client, personal relationships, and criminal intent.
- Biosecurity: Once health and safety teams who were more concerned about appeasing The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have now become novice epidemiologists, keeping up on the latest COVID strains and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations. Companies can have security systems that utilize all data inputs for enhanced contact tracing to combat and prevent major pandemics like COVID-19 and the flu.
