Security Matters – Know Your Visitors

Security Matters – Know Your Visitors
Employee Employee ‎11-02-2011 09:30 PM

You run a small business and you like to keep things casual… people coming and going, but you also handle confidential information.  So it’s important to protect your data… and equipment from breaches and possible theft.  If you are in an office setting or operate a retail shop it’s important that you and your employees keep an eye on these contractors, shoppers, vendors, and/or visitors.

 

Watch what happens when the character in the video lets his guard down and grants the ‘plant lady’ full access to his office.

 

 

 

 

In an office setting, should visitors need access to your company facility consider these guidelines to help secure your data and help protect against theft:

 

  • All visitors must be signed in (consider issuing a visitor’s badge) and escorted around by an employee while on the premise. Be sure to escort the visitor out the door too.  If you do issue a visitor’s badge be sure they are returned at the end of the day.
  • If you don’t see a badge or recognize the person, find out why the person is there or call security.

 

Security is everyone’s business.  If you missed the video on the importance of password click here and click here for the video on the importance of encrypting email and or data.

 

Feel free to share any security issues you may have experienced and what steps you took to prevent it from occurring again.
