TIPS FOR DOOR SECURITY

  • Make sure that any registered master key holders are properly trained and keep the number of those key holders to a minimum.
  • Use an intercom system to communicate with guests prior to allowing them access to any secure areas.
  • Make use of lights for your doorways. Keeping locked doors illuminated makes it more difficult to approach the building undetected.
  • Use cameras where applicable to keep an eye on the approach to doors and the hallways immediately inside exterior doors.
  • Consider adding an alarm for after-hours security.

TIPS FOR INTERIOR SECURITY

In addition to tactics that can secure the entrances and exits, many businesses benefit from internal security. To help keep your confidential projects secure and to ensure that visitors do not accidentally find themselves wandering into confidential information, try these tips.

  • Implement keycard access inside the building to segregate high-security areas—especially areas with technological vulnerabilities like server farms.
  • Implement interior cameras to monitor any doors or checkpoints erected to safeguard those confidential areas.
  • Use escorts and visitors’ passes to ensure that guests in the building find their way without worrying about their access to confidential information.
