Integrated Access Control And CCTV Systems – Maintaining Your Site’s Security During a Lockdown

surveillance cameras

Although movement rights normally restricted during a lockdown, a company’s site is, unfortunately, more prone than ever to significant losses in terms of thefts, vandalism and arson attacks, which commonly are crimes of opportunity.

The fact that a company’s premises is potentially deserted and unguarded, with a large number of employees working from home, can represent a potential security threat. However, this can be potentially mitigated by deploying integrated access control solutions and CCTV surveillance systems, which will provide real-time, actionable information about what’s happening on a company’ site – even when security staff is not present.

An organization’s IT department is, without a doubt, it’s most important asset at the minute, as it enables business continuity and helps manage all the remote workers. This is the reason why extra measures need to be deployed in order to protect this vital part of any business.

Such measures include:
