Businesses should always be alert and vigilant. Learn more about the future of business security.
The future of business security may seem like a very daunting topic to some, understandably so -with our grasp on technology as we understand it having to constantly evolve with the digital world around us, it is no wonder some of us would rather the world just freeze as it is currently.
No more changes, no more learning new technologies, no more nightmares of robots taking over… But for those of us excited at the prospect of an ever-evolving technological front for business security, please do read on.
1. Someone Always Watching
Much like the sci-fi movies from the late nineties, I personally cannot wait for robots. Robots constantly and vigilantly keeping watch over our companies, keeping us and our employees safe. Robots do not make mistakes like humans do, right? That is the idea anyway. Video surveillance will improve to staggering abilities, we will be able to see next Tuesday coming, well…almost.
2. Evolved Monitoring
Drones, artificial intelligence, and robots (yes, robots again – it will always be robots…) will take over. Figuratively, not literally. Cameras and motion detection systems will start to pick up on the slightest behavioral quirks and tendencies, affording the systems of the future away to predict crimes before they even happen. That might be a little way off still but a business alarm system that effectively and efficiently monitors and reports in record time exists amongst us today already.
3. Integrated Security
The future of business security includes far more integration throughout various platforms. The stakes are higher now than ever with businesses looking for integrated security solutions that have built in policies and artificial intelligence.
Businesses are realising faster and faster, the need to have a fully comprehensive picture of their I.T infrastructure, complete with a real-time understanding and response capability to ensure the protection of vital data and information.
These wants and needs are not company policy alone anymore, but in many countries cybersecurity expectations for companies are being written into law. These cybersecurity laws will soon become the standard across almost every industry and company. Ensuring the personal data of employees and customers or clients is a vital part of any company that survived the digital migration of the last decade.
4. Artificial Intelligence
Business security will improve exponentially once artificial intelligence is perfected for the security industries. We do not just mean robot vacuum cleaners, voice recognition or speakers that play your favourite song as you walk in the door – we are talking about artificial intelligence that is useful for your business or company.
Drones with artificial intelligence programmed onboard and access control panels with super-human facial recognition and A.I data recovery solutions are already being embraced and implemented across the business physical security industries.
5. Access Control Evolution
Access control as we know it will evolve beyond simple cardholder technology. Employees will have identities that will be managed and granted access based on job titles, requirements and pay grades. This eliminates the need to keep card or maintain cardholder databases.
Using identity and access management systems will change the way companies and businesses view logical systems, security systems as well as client relationship management systems. The identification integration will take place across all business related platforms pertaining to that employee or security personnel.
The future of business security does not have to be a terrifying concept or possibility. Rather read up on the technologies as they are developed so you will not end up feeling overwhelmed when business security systems and protocols evolve around you and your company. You do not need to be afraid if you are informed. Embrace the change and the business security revolution.
