Passwords and Their Importance

Passwords are important, and you know that, but did you know that passwords can potentially hold the key to the life or death of the business?  I bet you have several different passwords to various places on the internet, and if so, you probably do not even know half of them. If you do know your passwords, then how secure are these locks?

Creating an inconvenient password for you means putting a brick wall before your enemy. For those who wish to steal company secrets, this irritating password will be the very thing to deter them. Let them try for hours to decode your security system, it just isn’t happening. Take your time, find the most inconvenient password for yourself and virtually block every online thief in their tracks. When your company is fully protected by this move, you will understand the importance of the password and the role it plays in business security.

Security Cameras

Sure, it’s the oldest tool around, but it works. Say you have an incident that occurred when you were out. With the tape from the security camera, you can see detail by detail, what occurred within the establishment while you were away.  If money is missing, the thief can be caught on camera. If merchandise is stolen, the criminal can be swiftly brought to justice. With the security camera, you can save your business from failure, due to many reasons. Basically, the security camera is a way to see when there are no human eyes available.

Security cameras can be placed out in the open or they can be concealed. Some businesses, believe it or not, prefer the cameras to be left out in the open to deter criminals from doing the deed. Other businesses, however, rather play incognito and catch the bandit red handed. Whatever is preferred, the security camera is one of the best ways to secure the business.

Erase Hard drive Evidence

At some point, your company will need to invest in a new computer or copy machine. When this happens, you should take care to erase the hard drive. The hard drive of the computer holds useful information which could ultimately destroy your identity and company. Copy machines, when making reproductions of documents, store this information in their hard drives as well. Information that can be found in these machines include: military documents, personal finances and medical records. All this information is very personal and can be used to steal your identity. This is why both copiers and computers will need to be wiped before thrown out.

You love your business and you enjoy the fruits of your labor. After building your business and while watching it grow, make sure you fully protect your gold mine. If not, you may watch all your hard work go to waste. Secure the business and continue to be fulfilled by your success!
