Protecting your business

Are you doing as much as you can to protect your business from crime?

Business crime isn't always planned - in fact, crimes against businesses often happen when someone sees an opportunity.

Look at your business through the eyes of a criminal:

  • how easy would it be for someone to break into your premises?
  • could someone walk into your office/s and steal property? 
  • are your employees vulnerable?
  • are your vehicles and outbuildings safe?
  • do you have procedures in place to stop fraud or theft by your employees?

Think about these risks and consider putting extra security in place where necessary.

By taking even simple steps to protect your business, you can help to avoid becoming a victim of business crime.
