Don’t Overlook Physical Security as Privacy War Continues in Silicon Valley
The War on Terror has come to Silicon Valley in the most unlikely way – through an Apple iPhone. A federal court recently issued an order for Apple to reset the iCloud account of one of the San Bernardino shooters. Apple is fighting this order, expressing concerns about violating a citizen’s privacy and revealing product secrets to competitors. Now the government believes they will be able to unlock the phone without Apple’s help.
As the legal battle continues, it seems as if the victims are forgotten. The truth is you can’t protect everyone; however, there are several ways to help protect your employees, customers and business associates from attacks:
- Hire a physical security company to assess potential threats.
- Use uniformed officer receptionists to demonstrate armed security is present at your location.
- Hire mobile security officers who patrol the entire business park or property to make a physical presence as conspicuous as possible.
- Schedule Bay Area security patrol for extra coverage during critical times, such as closings, bank runs, and other periods of security vulnerability such as random nightly patrols to keep criminals from getting to know a security routine.
The presence of uniformed security serves as a deterrent to minor threats, such as vandals and thieves. It also reduces the likelihood that your business will be targeted by armed intruders or serve as the site of workplace violence as anyone planning an attack will likely choose an easier target that does not have trained security on-site. Although no company can guarantee safety, and violence in our world will always be governed by an element of randomness, you can deter unwanted behaviors by hiring a qualified, professional security team. In the event of an incident you will have the peace of mind that you have done everything in your power to protect the people that you rely on and that matter most to you and your business.
