The outer perimeter of your premises is your first line of defense. We would all rather stop criminals before they get into our yards. Perimeter security is both physical and operational and consists of either natural or structural barriers this ranging from a hedge, high fence, guard patrols, motion sensors or just a good lock.
The following are ways to secure your perimeter:
Security checks: always go around your perimeter to check for weaknesses or spots were your fence or wall has developed a weakness; particularly gaps were an intruder can gain entry. This is so you are the first to notice and hence take steps to secure those positions.
Electric fence: these will deter criminals and can be connected to your alarm or rapid response control room for detection as soon as someone attempts to get into your premises.
Security Signage: signs in strategic places that note the area is monitored or that security is on site is an effective perimeter security tool in terms of deterring burglars.
Engage Employees: Employees will realize a stranger is on site almost immediately, but will do nothing about it unless they have been inducted on what to when they do find themselves in that situation. Do they report the visitor, or do they hold open the door and allow access to your building.
Anti-climb fence: These make it impossible for a burglar to climb over your fence and gain entry into your yard.
Security beams/outside sensors: these are intrusion detection controls as we assume that if someone wants to get through the outer perimeter, they will. This means we need to supplement our fence with intrusion detection technology that would notify you that there is an intruder in the yard before they get into the building.
Security is an ongoing process that needs to be reviewed time after time as trends and technology changes. Remember SECURITY BEGINS WITH YOU!
