The first step to protecting the data and files inside your office is having an access control system. However, one mistake many business owners make is thinking their system is good enough to protect them for many years and they don’t have to change or upgrade it. The more ex-employees you have, the greater your security risks are. That’s not saying all former employees have malicious intentions, but if you don’t change your access control system, then they could steal some information if they wanted to. This is just one example of why you would need to change your system and here are some other situations to consider.
Security is a Concern
Security may be a concern if you had a malicious employee that was recently fired, had some keys lost or if your current system doesn’t have a way to track who enters your building. In situations like this, your current access control system may not be working how it should, since it doesn’t prevent the most likely threats to your organization. There are many different options available to alleviate these security concerns, which can be explained thoroughly by access control technicians.
Your Company is Growing
Growth is almost always a good thing for companies, as long as you can keep up with it. Some organizations that have old access control systems have to wait for their provider to generate access keys for new employees. This doesn’t necessarily lead to any risks or vulnerabilities, but it doesn’t make you look the most professional and innovative. Keep up with the growth of your company and evaluate whether your access control system is prepared for it.
You Have Too Many Keys To Carry
No one wants to come into work with as many keys as a janitor, unless you are the janitor. Having a different key for every door is a good security measure, but it’s also unnecessary. Upgrading your access control system may mean using key cards instead of traditional keys. You can program the cards to only allow authorized people into specific rooms. No more having to juggle multiple keys to find which one goes to the right door.
Your System is Old and Experiencing Problems
Your access control system should be one of the most reliable systems you have in your organization. So if you’re having trouble with access cards or fobs not working how they should, it may be time to upgrade your technology. Having access control technicians out to your property to evaluate your current system is a good first step to determine whether your system is sufficient for your needs.
