In the recent past, since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, many organizations’ business systems have been interrupted. While some organizations cannot afford to have their workforce working from home, those that can are being advised to take up remote working so as to slow down the spread of the virus that has been declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). The greatest perceived threat to this new system of working that it could potentially become a cybersecurity nightmare as hackers . However, while cyber attacks are a real threat,
companies are also faced with the challenge of their premises being vandalized.

It is quite clear that most crimes in organizations are an inside job. But what happens when there is no one at work? If there are no security systems in place, this makes it easy for burglars to infiltrate the premises and get away with equipment that is important in the running of the organization as well as sensitive documents. The impact that this can have on an organization is insurmountable. Having a security system in place ensures that organizations are still safe even when their workforce is working remotely.

Having security systems in place is great but you know what is better? Having systems that are monitored 24/7. Burglars are getting bold each and every day. Some are even willing to vandalize your organization even after seeing a security system in place. This is where Optiwatch (K) Limited comes in. The organization has an Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) that can monitor up to 30,000 alarms simultaneously. Having the systems remotely monitored ensures that there is a professional manning the system at all times. In the even that someone tries to break in, the operators can issue a real time verbal warning to the intruder asking them to leave the premises. If they do not adhere to the warning, the​ operator already has instructions on what steps to take next. The next step could be contacting the person in charge of security at the organization or the authorities, or both.

What happens if you do not already have security systems in place? We have initiated our business continuity plan whereby, our field teams are on location and able to provide any support in terms of installations and service and maintenance while taking great precaution to ensure that they do not contract the virus.

Businesses take time and effort to build and sustain. There should be systems in place to ensure that they are not taken down by wrongdoers in a day.
