1. Protecting Your Physical Space
You invested time and money to establish a physical presence for your law firm. Though some or most of your staff may be working from home, this physical space still needs to be protected. A security surveillance system can be your eyes when no one is in the office. A burst pipe that goes undetected over several days could cause thousands of dollars in damage. When you add in damage to client records and other essential documents, it’s easy to see why the sooner you know of a problem, the better.
The other aspect of physical space protection revolves around break-ins. Law firms, like most businesses handling personal data, are being targeted for cybercrime. The sensitive data used for that type of crime is housed on laptops and computers, making your physical space a potential target for thieves.
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 law firm and safeguard your clients’ and your firm’s sensitive data.
2. Protect Clients & Staff
Unfortunately, no business is immune from workplace violence, whether committed by staff or upset customers or clients. With a robust surveillance system, you can view the actions of your staff and clients in and around your office. If an incident were to happen, footage would provide critical information for the police that would expedite the investigation and resolution necessary to get back to your daily operations.
3. Affordable to Adjust to Fit Your Law Firm’s Needs
Security cameras and surveillance systems are some of the most affordable and scalable solutions you’ll ever purchase for your law firm. 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 law practice.
4. Peace of Mind
Peace of mind is priceless! Knowing that you are able to monitor your physical space for possible accidental damage, 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 your practice.
