What is a Security Systems Integrator & How Do They Improve Business Safety?
Business safety should be one of the biggest priorities for every organization. For many companies, this can be difficult because having effective business security requires thorough oversight of elements of physical security, cybersecurity, and workplace safety alike. Because of the extensive nature of maintaining business security, having a qualified onsite team that monitors, maintains, and updates all your company’s security measures can get expensive quickly.
Coordinating all your various forms of security can be an extensive task, and the responsibility of oversight can go far beyond many business administrations’ capacity. This is where security system integrators can help.
What is a Security System Integrator’s Job?
The role of security system integrators is to deploy a wide variety of evolving products, services, and strategies to ensure the safety of an organization. Their main objective is to coordinate and link various security systems to counter physical and cyberthreats. To do this, integrators need to have a deep understanding of hardware, software, networks, and specialized security equipment.
Even when security systems integrators are located offsite, their expertise in coordinating security systems can help amplify a business’s security.
Why Security Integrators are Essential for Your Business
There’s no denying that having proper security measures in the workplace is one of the most crucial business needs. When effective physical security measures like surveillance cameras or access control are implemented, organizations can protect themselves against enterprise theft, vandalism, and violence. However, only effective physical security measures aren’t enough.
The Importance of Security System Integrators and Cybersecurity
According to the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of a data breach in the US in 2020 was $8.64 million dollars, yet only 15% of information assets are protected by insurance companies. On average, organizations take 280 days to identify and contain a data breach. 52% of these breaches are caused by malicious attacks. Physical security and cybersecurity are seen as one cohesive unit thanks to IoT (Internet of Things), everything from your business climate control system to its stored sensitive data is vulnerable to cyberattacks.
Many companies today work under remote work methodologies. This makes managing network security and device safety a logistical nightmare! Every new connection brings new vulnerabilities. Suppose you rely on emails or web-based platforms like Zoom or Google to maintain digital records or use an online network for business processes. In that case, you need to implement the best physical and digital safety measures.
