As a large corporate or blue chip company your premises are likely to have a great deal of expensive equipment and tools. Whilst this can make you more successful, unfortunately it can also make your property a prime target for thieves.
Investing in state-of-the-art security has many benefits; deterring criminals, safeguarding staff and equipment, reducing insurance costs. At Turner Security Group we have worked with a number of large companies across the UK and are fully skilled and experienced to help your business benefit.

Managing staff and visitors
Whether it is tradesmen, staff, clients or other visitors, it can be difficult for larger corporations to keep track of everyone on site at any given moment, which can also unfortunately lead to difficulties in keeping the premises secure.
Security guards and receptionists can be helped in keeping track of staff and visitors with access control, CCTV and turnstiles at entrance points.
Discovering any insider threats
While your corporate company might be at threat from outsiders visiting or breaking into your premises, there is also the unfortunate reality that often such break ins can occur due to someone already working within the building – either directly or by association.
With CCTV internal security staff can benefit from an insider view of the premises and can easily work out the weak spots when it comes to your on-site security.
High volume of visitors
The higher the volume of traffic around your premises, the more likely it is that there may be either an internal or external threat of theft or break-in and the harder it is to defend against it. A highly successful way to be proactive is with visible CCTV and secure door automation so trusted staff members can view and control access to visitors.
If you have NDAs, classified files etc. this is vitally important.
How is a break-in damaging to your business?
A break-in on your corporate premises can be damaging for a number of different reasons. Here’s some of the costs that you can incur as a result of a break in.
- Expensive equipment on site
- Disruption to day to day productivity
- Data protection
They can also result in increased insurance rates and a loss of trust from clients.
Expensive equipment on site
No matter what your level of insurance cover is, you are always likely to incur costs that amount to equal or more than that you are covered for. Not only this, after a break in you can expect your insurance cover to go up in price substantially as a result. You’ll also need to be able to prove that you have taken adequate measures to ensure the very best security across your site, as there may be grounds for no payout whatsoever.
Typically equipment in a large corporate office can cost between thousands and hundreds of thousands, so you’ll want to ensure that this expensive equipment is being kept as safe as is possible.
Disruption to day to day productivity
It’s not just the level of expense required to cover the equipment within the office that has been stolen or damaged either. A break in can cause serious negative implications for day to day business. These include;
- Having no equipment to work with
- Time required to replace and reinstall equipment
- Lost work that cannot be retrieved
- A negative impact on employee wellbeing
In the immediate short-term, your employees will have no equipment to use to do their jobs. Equipment will need to be replaced and software reinstalled, and work may be lost if it has only been saved to a hard-drive. Certain systems that your staff may be used to working on may also be only available (at least in the short term) via the work computers.
It is also important not to underestimate the impact a break-in can have on employee wellbeing. Your employees want to feel safe and secure in their workplace. They also want to feel like they can leave their property on site without the possibility of it being stolen, whether this is in lockers, drawers, other storage or even in communal areas.
Perhaps the most damaging effect of all from a break-in is the possibility of a data breach. Data is the most valuable asset that a corporation can hold, and a data breach can have extremely serious implications for you and your business.
Since the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), protecting the data you hold and your client’s data has become of utmost importance. There is also the further consideration that your sensitive data – product launches, marketing plans – whatever it may be, could get into the wrong hands.
Which security is right for your business?
Large corporate and blue chip companies have complex needs. For large corporate premises we therefore recommend a full range of different protection to ensure that you are as protected as you can be against the costly damage of a break-in. To ensure you have the best security we recommend the following;
- Access Control Systems
- Intruder Alarms
Access Control Systems
Ask your visitors to swipe a card or for their fingerprint upon entry, and have easy control and set up from a single source. At Turner Security Group, we have a number of Access Control Systems options that can be tailored to you and your business.
If an intruder does manage to break-in to your large corporate premises you’ll want to ensure that the authorities and a select number of contacts are alerted as promptly as possible. Our Intruder Alarm Systems are fitted with a 106db (decibels) alarm and a blue flashing strobe light.
Additionally we also recommend that you install CCTV cameras. As it can be difficult to spot unusual activity on a site with large numbers of people coming backwards and forwards, CCTV can both help with detecting any unusual activity around your premises either during or outside of working hours.
At Turner Security Group,we offer the very latest CCTV technology; high definition, energy efficient, and available to view on any device at any time, anywhere, it’s the CCTV solution that every business should have.
