Recession – what does it mean for your security?
As fears rise about the UK amongst other economies plunging into long term recession we consider what, if any, impact this may have on your security. It may be doom, but not all gloom.
When the economy goes in to recession we all cut back, tighten the belt, reduce spending, concentrate on essentials. This is exactly when the security industry becomes most important. If you’re eliminating luxury, or discretionary spend, to meet budgets then the one essential you can’t afford to be without is security.
Why? Because when things get tough crime rises. It affects all areas of industry, commerce and even residential property. Business are reportedly taking advantage of the work from home trend to close buildings, reduce their property portfolio, and hand back buildings they don’t own to landlords who may struggle to re-let. Left unattended these empty properties attract the unwanted attention of thieves and vandals. Happy to strip out your fixtures and fittings for their scrap value. Or to trash the place for “fun”!
It’s particularly to have a robust security system in place to prevent this happening. An advanced perimeter system can keep your property secure starting at the perimeter. Don’t let unwanted visitors on your property and they can’t get in to your property.
