WHAT IS YOUR SECURITY AWARENESS IQ? 

Your awareness of the need for security, is the best place to begin a discussion on physical property security.

What is security awareness? Our definition is multi-faceted, and includes the ability to identify known and unknown threats, being aware of the technologies, products and services that can defuse those threats, knowing how to operate the products and systems you have, and most importantly the awareness that these systems must be used, and must be used all of the time.


CRIME PREVENTION TIPS

  • Identify and document how entry was attempted or gained.

  • Repair building damage, or point you to who can.

  • Repair or replace damaged locks and security systems.

 

CHOOSING YOUR SAFE

Choosing the correct safe for your needs, can be a complicated task, there are many different kinds of safes in the marketplace. Safes are designed and built to provide specific protections for the items you want to place in them. Choices include burglary safesdepository safesfire/record safesmedia/data safesgun safeswall safes and even more.

 

FAQ’S FOR CHOOSING THE CORRECT SAFE 

  • If you keep your business documents and records, in your home or at your place of business, you need a fire safe. Statistics show that if a company’s records are lost in a fire, 17% can no longer furnish a financial statement, 14% suffer a reduction in credit rating and 43% go out of business completely. No home or business is safe from fire.

  • If you keep cash or valuables at home at your place of business, or in a safe deposit box, you may want to consider a burglary safe or high security container.

  • If you have a high traffic retail business, where a lot of cash is handled, you may benefit from a depository safe, or skim safe, to control the who has access to your cash and for how long.

  • If you keep computer media on your premises, it should be stored in a media safe.

AUTOMOTIVE LOCKOUTS

There was a time, in the not so far distant past, that cars were not very difficult to open when the keys were locked inside. That is no longer true, with the increased emphasis on security, manufacturers have made cars increasingly difficult to open. Many more lockout tools and new techniques are required.

When cars were not hard to get into it was common for local police or fire departments to make lockout services available. With the higher degree of expertise needed to unlock today’s automobiles, and the increased chance of doing damage to in the door electronics or air bag systems, many municipalities are no longer willing to assume the liability of unlocking your car.

Each year when the new cars hit the market, lockout tool manufacturers will study any new locking systems that have been introduced, decide how best to unlock them, and then will make and sell new tools that are designed to unlock those systems without doing any damage. Professional locksmiths will attend industry classes and learn to use these tools correctly.

Kent Reeve Locksmithing studies the new cars when they come on the market, and takes classes when offered to be sure we are up to speed on any new locking systems, we buy the new tools and learn to use them correctly. If you want your car unlocked, without damage, call us or another professional locksmith.

 

YOUR HOME IS YOUR CASTLE

Lets start with the really simple things to check. Did you have your locks rekeyed when you moved in? Do you know how many keys fit your doors, and who has them? If you answered no to either of these questions, you should contact us, for a discussion on key control and/or key control systems.

 

PERSONAL SECURITY AWARENESS

Identity theft can happen many ways, the risks are very real, however with the formation of a few judicious habits, we can go a long way toward prevention of this crime of opportunity.

  • Cut down on the number of credit cards you carry, and never give the number over the phone or Internet, unless you have purposely initiated the transaction.

  • Never give out your social security number.

  • Buy a paper shedder and use it to shred all personal trash from your home or business.

  • Never include address information on your key ring.

  • By very careful with the personal information you give to anyone you don’t know, it takes very little information for the unscrupulous people in our midst to start building their new identity to match you.

 

ATM SECURITY

 

INTERNET FRAUD

  • Never open an email attachment from someone you are not familiar with, or were not expecting to receive.

  • Never give personal information on a web site if you did not initiate the contact via a link you have used to contact that company before. I get at least 1 or 2 scam emails a day, that look exactly like the real thing, no matter how convincing they sound, almost no legitimate company or financial institution will ever send you an email asking for account numbers or any other personal information, most will not ask you to clink a link within that email. if they ask you to contact them, be sure you enter a link you trust.

  • If you accept credit cards over the internet, be very wary of multiple orders from the same person using different cards, they are almost always stolen.
