Why you should start with a clear security budget

A proactive approach to security can keep your business assets safe and considerably reduce expenditure related to a security incident. Creating a robust security budget is important for managing security protocols and setting up the right protection.

In this article, we’ll discuss the benefits of establishing clear security protocols as well as a realistic security budget for your business. Instead of waiting for something to happen, a proactive approach will help strengthen the resilience of your business.

What happens if you wait for something to go wrong?









Security is viewed by many businesses as a box to tick, and most wait for an incident to happen before seriously considering a security plan. By the time this happens, your business will spend a substantial amount of money and time trying to fix the issues and save the impacted assets.

Not having a plan or protocol in place can increase insurance premiums and show a lack of concern to the public. It can also potentially disrupt your customers and negatively impact brand confidence and disrupt income. Not to mention, the immediate costs associated with repairing any damaged goods and property and getting replacements.

Save money with a clearly defined security budget









Allocating a security budget helps businesses to focus on specific security needs. A budget allows for clearly defined goals to be made, saving you money and time trying out solutions that might not be used or needed. Businesses minimise risk when specific security costs are associated with actions, such as implementing new locks or connecting surveillance systems together.

Investing in a singular security protocol can often be overpriced, which is why Wilson Security provides a full suite of solutions for businesses to have a tailored security solution. This helps provide a realistic and effective security budget which fits your business needs.
