Security measures are of little use if they are not enforced. A security audit assesses how effectively your organization’s security policies are being implemented. Audits will show where gaps and vulnerabilities exist in current systems and procedures. Security audits also play an important role in internal investigations when anomalies are discovered or wrongdoing is suspected. Although there are a million good reasons a physical security audit is important, perhaps the most relevant to all people everywhere, regardless of data or regulations - is bodily safety.
Many times, security is an afterthought that only gets attention after a break-in. Conducting regular security audits can help keep security a priority at all times. In your business, security audits can help understand their role in keeping the building and its contents secure. You can update employee control systems, give or revoke access privileges, and remind everyone of your established security protocol. Whether you’re securing home or business property, security audits can help you catch small problems before they become big security issues.
