It is important to remember that your business is not just vulnerable from the thieves on the outside, but is also just as vulnerable from their own employees or suppliers.
Apart from the actions of a well-established thief, when personal finances are limited, temptation rises with the need by many otherwise honest and loyal personnel, to want to retain a certain lifestyle for themselves and their family, and what might begin as something quite petty as far as theft is concerned could escalate into an organised team of thieves within the workforce.
Security is not always a priority that many businesses take seriously until it is too late. It is generally thought of unnecessary expense and placed at the lowest rung on the priority ladder.
Your goods represent your profits, your means to employ your workforce, and of course your own source of income. Investing in various forms of security makes sense, and once in place is a good investment providing you have the right equipment for the job.
