 The staggering statistics prove that no commercial business is immune from crime. Nearly 30% of businesses reported an increase in “physical security incidents” in 2022. That matches the same 28% jump in business crime reported in 2021, which followed a 20% gain in 2020. According to the FBI, cargo theft is estimated to cost trucking companies and retailers at least $15 billion to $30 billion a year.

Unfortunately, criminals are seldom easily deterred by a single layer of perimeter security, guards, or video surveillance. They are opportunists who regularly participate in organized crime and are prepared to adjust their methods to achieve their criminal objectives.Most businesses focus on adding better locks, barbed wire, keyless access systems, enhanced employee background checks and video surveillance to their facilities.  While these are effective solutions, experience tells us that criminals fear integrated and multi-layered solutions. Logic dictates that when you remove the opportunity, thieves will go elsewhere.

In this webinar, we will disclose how commercial organizations can improve their overall security posture. Our experts will discuss key takeaways that can be quickly implemented to help reduce and mitigate the risks of theft and protect your security investment. We will also share real-life customer use cases of how they effectively implemented a layered solution that deterred potential theft or eliminated theft entirely.
