Top Four Reasons Why Your Financial Services Office Needs Surveillance and Security Cameras

By Higher Information Group | Financial

Do you currently have video surveillance set up at your financial services office? Financial institutions more than likely have video surveillance set up. But what about your financial planning services office? Maybe you thought a security system with cameras wasn’t really necessary - after all, you’re not selling merchandise from a storefront. But as you’ll learn in this post, there are several compelling reasons you should consider a professionally installed and maintained video surveillance system where you conduct financial services and financial planning.

1. Proactive Crime Prevention

Because of what’s inside your financial services office, it could be the target of a break-in. Customer/client records contain account numbers and other sensitive, personal information. Burglars may be looking to steal laptops and physical files with the ultimate goal of selling that precious data on the Dark Web.

The good news is that a security system that includes an alarm and surveillance cameras has been shown to be an effective deterrent to burglary. According to research from UNC Charlotte, 60% of the burglars who were interviewed stated that the presence of an alarm would cause them to seek an alternative target altogether. It was also revealed that if burglars discovered there was an alarm during entry, many would stop the attempt to carry out a crime.

The takeaway here is that the mere presence of a security system may be all you need to prevent a crime! This is one of the simplest measures you can take to protect your financial services office from break-ins.

2. Protect Patients & Staff

Another aspect of security is ensuring the protection of those in your building. If a crime happens, you want to have evidence and helpful information to report to the police. Security cameras and surveillance systems provide your customers/clients and employees with a sense of security. You never know when an incident will occur, and having footage of any instance will expedite the investigation and resolution necessary to get back to your daily operations.

3. Affordable to Adjust to Fit Your Financial Services Needs

Security cameras and surveillance systems are some of the most affordable and scalable solutions you’ll ever purchase for your financial services office. If you are growing, or downsizing, you can easily add or remove cameras, or aspects of your systems. Typically, installations are quick, simple, and affordable. With all the current options and features of modern security systems, there is one to fit any business, including your financial services company.

4. Peace of Mind

Peace of mind is priceless! Knowing that you are able to monitor your physical space, reduce the chance of crime, and provide valuable information if a crime occurs puts your mind at ease and allows you to enjoy your time away from work.
