New Security Trends for a New Decade: Exploring 2020 and Beyond
Security is an industry that doesn’t hold still. Criminals, terrorists, hackers – all those will evil intent – continuously evolve their attacks. Security professionals must exceed their level of creativity and determination with great resolve of their own to protect the people and places they are responsible for. Here are some trends to watch for in 2020 and beyond.
Keeping a handle on who gets in and out of properties is an area of increasing concern. Badges can be stolen, employees can be careless and social engineering can often enable determined intruders to talk their way past a guard. Tougher to fake is biometrics. The use of fingerprint readers or facial recognition software is expected to rise in the near term.
According to a Forbes report, by the end of 2021, more than one trillion dollars will be spent on cybersecurity globally. The problem is that much of this is spent piecemeal and reactively, throwing money at threats as they arrive. Expert consultation is essential, to develop and deploy a comprehensive cyber and physical security plan that takes into account existing threats and well as anticipating new ones. The plan must include daily prevention as well as emergency response.
No matter where security is needed, remote monitoring provides a solution that keeps properties secure while keeping people safe. From remote outposts to hazardous materials to attractive nuisances, your property can be monitored from a central location 24/7/365. Intruders can be warned away, or authorities notified, depending on the severity of the threat. VirtuGuard™ remote guarding services from BOS Security can give you peace of mind at a fraction of the cost of on-site guards.
