4 Common Mistakes Businesses Make When It Comes to Security

When we say “At PGC we’ve got you covered” it isn’t just a catchy phrase – it’s a promise that we take seriously. We take it seriously because the importance of security can’t be overstated.

Yet, when it comes to security, businesses often find themselves making these four common mistakes.

4 Common Mistakes Businesses Make When It Comes to Security

Here are 4 common mistakes businesses make when it comes to security.

1. Underestimating the importance of physical security

With everything online and in the cloud,  it’s easy to become fixated on cyber threats and overlook the significance of physical security. 

Your business premises, equipment, and assets are valuable and need protection too. 

From access control systems to video surveillance, we offer a range of solutions to safeguard your physical space, ensuring your peace of mind.

2. One-size-fits-all approach

Your business is unique. And that extends to what you need for security too. 

Relying on a one-size-fits-all security solution might leave gaps that opportunistic threats can exploit. 

Our tailored approach involves understanding your requirements and designing a comprehensive security strategy specifically for your business.

3. Failure to regularly update systems

Security isn’t a one-time fix; it’s an ongoing commitment. 

Outdated security systems, whether physical or digital, can quickly become ineffective against evolving threats. 

At PGC Security, we prioritise regular system updates and maintenance to ensure that your defences stay ahead of potential risks. You can read more about the importance of security system maintenance here.

4. Ignoring the importance of risk assessment

Not all risks are created equal, and blindly investing in security measures without a proper risk assessment can lead to wastage of resources. 

Our experienced team can conduct thorough risk assessments to identify any potential vulnerabilities of your business. This means you can then allocate resources strategically and more effectively.

At PGC Security, we understand that every business has its own security needs. That’s why our approach is rooted in collaboration, assessment, and tailored solutions.
