As you close out the year with holiday celebrations, time spent with family and friends, and strategic planning for 2024, it is also important to freshen up on the theft trends, review best practices and evaluate your 2023 security strategies. Here are the top five blogs to help guide you:
1. The Unexpected Pitfalls of Commercial Property Insurance
You’ve got insurance, so you should be covered if your business is targeted for theft, right? Not so fast. A single commercial property insurance claim can increase premiums by 20%. Not only could you see a spike in your insurance premium, but you may end up paying multiple deductibles if more than one asset is taken and in the event of excessive claims, you could be dropped entirely. These shortcomings prove that relying on your commercial property insurance isn’t an effective solution to recovering from theft.
2. Security Best Practices for Trucking
Cargo theft continues to rise, threatening the profitability and smooth operation of trucking companies across the country. Not only is cargo theft costly, but it can tarnish the reputation of a company if shipments are delayed or missing and endanger the lives of truck drivers. This blog explores methods for keeping your trucks safe in transit through route planning, anti-theft systems, and more. We also provide a quick checklist for drivers to keep cargo safe on the road.
3. Business Process Adaptability 101: Adopting New Security Practices
Introducing new processes and technology can be difficult for any organization, but change is necessary for growth. Whether your business is making a seemingly minor change like implementing a new time-card system or a larger lift like overhauling your security practices, getting employee buy-in is often the hardest part. The key to getting your employees to adopt new processes positively and quickly is easing the pain of change. With these steps, you can help your business scale for long-term success without resistance from your staff.
