The Best Work From Home Cybersecurity Tips

cybersecurity at home

Working From Home Unexpectedly?

Have you been asked (or told) to work from home due to the coronavirus pandemic? How is that going for you? It’s been a few weeks and we sure hope that you have been able to hold on to your job; we do understand that many people have been furloughed, or let go due to loss of business.

  • If you are lucky enough to work for a company that has retained you and asked you to work from home, this is for you.
  • If you are spending time at home looking for a job, or if your kids are at home working on school assignments, this is for you.
  • If you have elderly parents who due to being quarantined are spending more time online, this is for you as well

Remote Working Is The New Normal During This Pandemic

While remote work has been the status quo for only 7% of the US workforce prior to the COVID-19, it has become the ‘new normal’ during this pandemic.

Whole office buildings are empty, and millions of people have scrapped their community to start working from home. Of the 80+ million American school children, 97% are home home, engaged in distance learning through the internet.

These remote workers and students now work at kitchen tables, in bedrooms, basements, or living rooms instead of cubicles and fancy offices and in schools.

Some have families or pets at home who might or might not distract them.

Remote Work Tips From Those Who Have Experience

While many people are experiencing working from home for the first time, navigating and learning what works and what doesn’t, as they go, looking to those who already worked from home for tips is a smart idea.

Who has prior experience, you ask?

Freelancers, creatives like graphic designers and web designers, authors, customer service, sales etc.; whole industries are build on remote workers.

Here is an article filled with 30+ tips from those who have experience as remote workers! These kids can be applied to employees as well as students!

How To Stay Sane, Married and Employed While Working Remote

Now, we all know that due to social distancing and mandatory quarantines, we are spending way more time online than usual. Facebook is reporting that their usage is up by over 50%!

In times of stress and worry, humor is a great way to get relief.

Check out this funny video with excellent tips on how to stay married, employed and sane while working remote.

Cybersecurity Tips For Students and Remote Workers!

Whether you are working from home yourself, or your children are on the internet all day long for distance learning, here are the best tips to keep you and your loved ones safe!

đŸ”„Be aware of phishing scams! Do not click on emails or messages asking you to check or renew passwords and login credentials, even if they seem to come from a trusted source.

đŸ”„Recheck your Wi-Fi connection; update your password. While most Wi-Fi is correctly secured, some older installations might not be, which means people in the near vicinity can snoop your traffic or hack into your system – call us at Strand Security if you aren’t sure!

đŸ”„Reset passwords frequently and if sharing accounts with coworkers, always use a password manager to share passwords, never in an email.

đŸ”„Install anti-virus software and keep it updated.

đŸ”„Use your home security system to keep an eye on your home and your family, but make sure the system itself is secure against hacking!

đŸ”„Back up all important files – we recommend backing up files on both a hard drive as well as in the cloud.

đŸ”„Get into the habit of locking your computer and phone screens. While you are in quarantine with family members, this might not be of huge concern, but if you do have sensitive data on your devices, it’s always a good idea to keep your devices locked.

đŸ”„Stick to HTTPS websites! Do not enter your credit card information unless you know and trust the site.

Don’t forget to share these tips with your elderly parents active online as well!

How To Protect Your Business Assets With a Commercial Security System

protect business asets

Does Your Business Own or Lease Expensive Equipment?

Dentists need chairs to treat their patients.
Average cost: $3000+

Their x-ray machines?
All the way up to $65,000

How about construction companies? They have hundreds of thousands worth of equipment on job sites!

General Crime PRevention Tips for your Myrtle Beach or Grand Strand Construction Site

Say what?

Whether your business needs commercial kitchen equipment, specialized vans or trucks, lifts, computers or tools, this equipment costs money. A lot of money.

Insurance Will Cover Replacement Cost In Case of Loss.

If you lease, rent or have bought expensive business equipment to run your business, we assume you have insurance to cover the cost of replacing these tools and machinery.

What business owners forget and frequently run into is that replacing those items in case of a fire, theft, or vandalism, slows down their productivity level and can harm their business in the short or long term, can even financially ruin it.

Insurance Won’t Cover Lost Time and Productivity.

Therefore, it is in everyone’s best interest to PREVENT accidents, thefts, burglaries, and vandalism.

A business that has to take time out to renovate, reconstruct, or reorder/repurchase equipment is a business that’s not productive, not running at their capacity.

How To Prevent Accidents and Incidents in the Workplace

It’s a multi-step process

  1. Training
  2. Technology
  3. Implementation
  4. Inspections
  5. Fix and Adjust Plan
  6. Retraining

The owner or CEO of the company has to understand that time lost is money lost. Money that can be used to prevent incidents with a risk-identifying plan.

In other words, in order to prevent incidents, you have to spend money – on training, inspections and technology.

How To Protect Your Business Assets With a Commercial Security System

How does a commercial security system help protect your business?

Let’s count the many ways!

  1. Security cameras can spot shoplifters, vandals, and loiterers inside or outside your property, prompting you to take immediate action.
  2. Vehicle trackers can help locate your stolen vehicle and products, as well as track the driver’s stats and driving record.
  3. A monitored alarm system alert authorities immediately in case of burglary, fire or vandalism.
  4. Panic buttons help employees stay safe; help is only one push of the button away

Spend Money To Save Money

While this might not be what you want to hear, a solid business plan should reveal to you that this is the ONLY way to go to protect your investment; of time, money and effort in starting and running a business.

Don’t be caught without insurance.
Don’t be caught without a commercial security system.

Protect what’s rightfully yours, so you can keep it and enjoy it.

How To Protect Your Employees With a Commercial Security System

Your Employees Are Your Business

The very last thing you want to hear is that there has been an ‘incident’ at your business.

Whether it is a phone call from your employee, or a call from the police, as soon as you hear this message, you know that you and your business are in trouble.

If you are the owner or CEO of a brick and mortar store, a restaurant, a gas station, a bank, a school, a church or a service provider with a fleet of trucks and a slew of employees, you never want harm to come to your employees, correct?

Regardless of the potential harm and suffering of your employees, accidents also harm your reputation and your pocketbook!

protecting employees from harm

Identify Potential Danger and Risk in the Workplace – Step 1

The first step to giving your employees protection and safety is to properly identify potential problems. This is done by a thorough inspection of your property, as well as an inspection of your safety procedures, followed by an emergency planning and training session!

Here are a few areas to look at

(this may very well not be a complete list – we are not risk managers!)

  • Lighting in parking lots
  • Safety procedures for heavy equipment (signage and training)
  • Locking mechanism to keep employees in and danger out
  • Heavy lifting and storing and stacking products
  • Loading, unloading, and driving procedures
  • Fire safety
  • and more!

Protect Your Employees With Safety Tools and Protocols – Step 2

The next thing on your list after identifying potential risks in the workplace is to give your employees access to tools and training to keep themselves and your customers safe!

That translates to tools and protocols like

To make all this easier to implement, we suggest you rely on technology to help you do all this, as we do in our own business! Check out the third step!

Use Technology To Monitor, Alert, and Call For Assitance – Step 3

We recommend using technology to keep your employees safe from harm. We at Strand Security utilize and rely on these same products, brands, and the same security equipment to keep our own employees (and families) safe from harm!

Here is a list of safety and security products that can increase the overall safety of your employees while they are in your care!

The single best precaution to take is to get a

After that, these are our top choices for additional security!

If you employ even just one person, you owe it to them to keep them safe from harm!

How to Protect The Most Vulnerable Family Members!

protect vulnerable family members

Families Come In All Shapes and Sizes!

Some families are units consistent with 1 or 2 people.

Other families have a larger unit to include several children.

Again other families have multiple generations living together to make up a family unit.

Whatever your family looks like, we are sure of two things

You

  • love them
  • want to protect them

We are here to offer some insights and help!

Protect Vulnerable Family Members First!

Below find some of the most vulnerable family members as well as ways you can protect them and keep them safe.

Protect the Elderly in your Home!

An elderly person living in your home, or living alone, often spends time home alone.

In case of emergency, we recommend a wearable personal safety button, also called a panic button.

Grandma needs a panic button

 

School Children Coming Home After School to an Empty House

Is there ever a ‘right time’ to leave your child home alone?

How do you know your child is ready to come home after school to an empty house?

We hear and know your concerns.

New Baby? You Need a New Emergency Plan!

Anytime you have a new addition to the family, your family emergency plan should change!

You also need to update your home, to keep your new baby safe from harm as s/he grows and starts being mobile!

Family Security Doesn’t Have To Cost an Arm and a Leg!

Every family should have the peace of mind that comes with having a security system!

We at Strand Security work with families to find a solution that works and one they can afford.

Doesn’t everyone deserve security and safety?

Secure Your Doors as Babies Become Mobile!

As babies grow from infants to roaming toddlers, your families’ needs may change to include locks and alerts on doors, windows and pools!

Installing a home camera system is another great way to keep ‘an eye’ on roaming toddlers!

Got a New Teenaged Driver? Safety First!

Teenagers enjoy the new freedom they get once they have a driver’s license. With that freedom comes new danger and dangerous situations. Keep your teenagers safe from harm. Here are some tips.

Track Your Teenager on the Road for Safety

Did you know we can help you track your new teenager driver (or your elderly relative if need be!)? How about that peace of mind when they are out and about.

While protecting your teenager is great, you are also tracking that expensive car of yours, of course!

Teenagers Don’t Want to Talk To You!

How then, will you know they are doing their homework, chores or if they arrived home safely?

A system like Honeywell Lynx would let you know exactly that!
Security cameras and the system can send you updates in realtime as to their whereabouts and on-going activities in your home! No need to ask them what they are doing; you can just check the cameras!

Last But Not Least, Protect Your Pets!

While pets can help deter break-ins and chase off would-be-burglars, they are still vulnerable.

If no one is home and fire were to break out, these family members need rescuing too!

Side note: How fun is it, to see what your dog is up to while you are at work? Lots of fun! 😉

5 Reasons To Upgrade Your Security System Now

upgrade your security system

Security Systems Need Updating

Say what?

Just like your smartphone, your computer, and any other tech gadgets you may own, your security system needs upgrading too!

In this article, we will look at five reasons to upgrade your security system.

Whether you live in the Myrtle Beach area, on the Grand Strand, somewhere else in South Carolina or elsewhere in the world, technology needs to be upgraded from time to time and upgrading your security system is not just a matter of convenience but a matter of your personal safety and security!

While there may be more than five reasons to upgrade your security system, we are going to look at these five most common reasons to help you decide whether to upgrade or leave it for a bit longer.

Upgrade Your Security System Now If Its Older Than 5 Years

If you have a security system that was installed more than 5 years ago, it’s time to upgrade. Technology advances in the last five years make many devices and some epquipment absolete or outdated. There are newer and better cameras, systems, apps and other updates that will make your system run more smoothly.

Just like your car needs a tune-up, your security system does as well.

We aren’t saying you need to replace your system; upgrading the systems and adding some newer parts and equipment is most likely all you will need.

upgrade your security system

Upgrade Your Security System Now If Your Family Dynamics Have Changed

If you were single or married without children, or married with small children, or married and now are single, or you have babies, toddlers or teenagers – any changes to your family dynamics warrant an upgrade to your security system.

Reason being that new people might be using your system, and you are now monitoring different areas of your home.

If your elderly parents have moved in, you might need to upgrade the system to include a panic button, just to name an example.

upgrade your security system

Upgrade Your Security System Now If Your System Depends on A Landline

This is a tricky one but important reason to upgrade your system.

Landlines used to be the standard way to install your security system, but criminals have learned to simply identify and cut landlines, leaving your home, and you, vulnerable.

Instead, your system should run on mobile technology on a secure and password-protected network you manage for all your computers and technology.

If you still have a system on a landline, call your security provider today and switch to a new system!

upgrade your security system

Upgrade Your Security System Now If You Have No Security Cameras

Security cameras have come a long way.

Security cameras used to be ugly, bulky and huge. In 2019, the choice is yours! Security cameras are sleek, small and hard to detect.

Adding cameras to your home or business is a smart way to monitor what goes on when you are away, from your smartphone or tablet!

upgrade your security system

Upgrade Your Security System Now If You Are Planning a Trip

Nothing like upgrading a security system right before a trip. Especially if it a long trip, or a far-away trip. Servicing and upgrading -where-needed before a trip will give you complete peace of mind while you travel.

If you get the right system installed, you will be able to monitor from afar, no matter where you are in the world, as long as you have Wifi! You could be Tahiti, Hawaii or Australia and still know and see what’s happening in your home or business from your device!

upgrade your security system

Are You Ready To Upgrade Your Security System?

We at Strand Security can upgrade your system, whether you are a current customer, or not (yet). We’d love to help you navigate the world of security, making sure you get the right equipment, the right system and perfect security set up for years to come!

3 Ways To Protect Your Business Property From a Hurricane

protect business during hurricane

Hurricane Preparations Start Now!

If you live in the southeast, you should have a hurricane emergency plan.

Hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 every year and while most hurricanes are active in September and October, a hurricane could develop in the other months.

Hurricane prep for your family, home and business should start now, while the skies are blue and the sun is shining and most people are enjoying the beach.

Doesn’t matter whether you read this in June, July or August – Hurricane prep should be done weeks if not months before a named storm heads your way!

Protecting Your Business Property During a Hurricane

Besides your home and family, your business property will also need looking after during a hurricane.

What steps can you take today, to make that happen and how can you best protect your business property when a hurricane comes to the Grand Strand, or to the place where you reside?

Let’s look at 3 ways you can make an impact today, that will help you secure your business property later!

1) Create a Hurricane Prep Plan For Your Business

Much like a family emergency plan, and a hurricane preparation plan for your family, your business needs one as well.

This written plan should layout how to prepare your building for a hurricane, different scenarios depending on the severity and strength of the hurricane, who will be in charge when the hurricane hits, whom to contact after a hurricane (electric company, water company, contractor, insurance agent), your insurance paperwork and suppliers information and other important details you will need, to keep your business afloat in times of inclement weather.

  • Lists are your friend when things get hectic.
  • Lists will help you stay focused in a time of chaos.
  • Lists can keep you on track to complete all tasks.

You see, panic sets in once the local news stations merely hint at a possible storm, and supplies will be gone before you know it.

As business owners who’ve lived on the Grand Strand nearly 10 years, we’ve seen a few storms head our way and we’ve seen business owners (as well as local residents) be ill-prepared.

Don’t get caught without a plan!

2) Set Up Remote Monitoring For Your Business Property

How scary will it be if you have to evacuate and leave everything you know and love behind?

Super scary! We know first-hand.

However, there are ways you can still keep an eye on your home and business property in case of a storm when you need to hunker down or evacuate; remote monitoring!

We offer this service to monitor your business year-round to

now add

  • monitor during a hurricane

as another reason to get a remote monitoring system installed at your business property!

With this system in place, you can watch in real-time what is happening.

This monitoring becomes vital after a hurricane has come and gone as flooding and looting are two concerns that pop up afterward!

2019 hurricane guide for South Carolina

3) Order Hurricane Supplies Now

Last but not least, do the following as soon as you can, before any storm hits the Atlantic waters and stirs up the Grand Strand!

  • hire a contractor or handyman to cut boards for your business property windows
  • buy a generator
  • test your current alarm system
  • purchase extra batteries from your security company
  • get your hands on sandbags (Amazon is great for that!)

We’ve been through several hurricanes since moving to the Grand Strand area from Maryland and each one is as unpredictable as the next.

It’s not just the wind and rain you have to account for, but also flooding afterward!

What Are the Best Security Cameras for Your Home?

best security cameras for your home

Does Your Home Need Security Cameras?

We assume you want (and need) safety for your family above all else.

You have

  • locks on your door
  • locks on your windows

You do not want uninvited ‘guests’ to join you in your home unexpectedly, correct?

Besides putting locks on doors and windows to keep unwanted guest out, what else can you do?

A security system would be next on our list, and with a good security system comes security cameras.

That leaves us with the following two questions; Does your home need security cameras and if the answer is ‘yes’, what are the best security cameras for your home?

When Your Home Needs Security Cameras

Here are some reasons to have security cameras. We think some of these reasons might resonate with you.

Your home is in need of security cameras if you

  • live in a rural area
  • live in a suburban setting
  • live in the city
  • have no nearby neighbors
  • live in a high crime neighborhood
  • don’t have family nearby
  • live alone
  • travel often
  • leave the house for work every day
  • have small children
  • have teenagers
  • have elderly parents that live with you
  • have pets that are left unattended during the day

Do any of these apply to your living situation?

What Are the Best Security Cameras for Your Home?

It is tough to say what the best security cameras are for your home.

Your security alarm dealer can help you figure out what you need, but here are some parameters to work with.

All these factors what type of cameras you need and where they should possibly be installed.

Security cameras are a deterrent to criminals Myrtle beach

How Many Security Cameras Does Your Home Need?

The best person to ask this question to is your alarm system dealer. They have experience with this and can give you an estimated number of cameras needed to monitor your home, depending on the size, location and your needs.

The best part is that if you currently have an existing system without cameras, it is fairly easy to add cameras, and even easier to add additional cameras at a later date since you’ll be wired already.

How Can You Get The Best Security Cameras For Your Home?

Here are your steps.

  1. Write down the reasons you need cameras
  2. Research online for camera brands
  3. Set a budget
  4. Research your local security system companies
  5. Reach out to your local and locally owned alarm system dealer
  6. Have them install, monitor and maintain your alarm system and cameras
  7. Relax and know you and your loved ones are protected!

7 of the Most Common Business Security Issues

How To Keep Your Business Secure and Your Employees Safe

What could go wrong in your business?

The better question to ask is ‘what could not go wrong?’

Everything and anything can happen to your location, inventory, reputation, and staff – things that you should value the most if you’ve invested in your business.

We’ve collected 7 of the most common security and safety issues we see on the commercial side of our business and we also have some solid solutions for you to implement, stat!

via GIPHY

1) Personnel Safety

The safety and security of your personnel should be priority #1 for you.

We at Strand Security value our employees, and so should you. That includes giving them direct access to emergency help when needed, lights in parking lots, and a safe working environment.

2) Fire Hazards

Fire safety starts with leadership. You as the business owner can not pass inspection for your building without adhering to fire safety codes. Keeping everything in working order and up-to-date is important, as well as going over fire safety procedures with your staff.

Last but not least, installing a security system that is monitored and fire alarms that are hard-wired ensures that help is on the way, no matter the circumstance.

common commercial security issues

3) Equipment Malfunction

Whether you own a butcher shop, a grocery store, an office or something in between, hazardous machines can be found everywhere in a work environment.

Making sure that all equipment passes inspection and having a first-aid station ready to go, as well as an alarm system in place to call for help when needed, are great ways to keep your employees safe. It goes without saying that routine safety checks and training for new hires address this potentially hazardous equipment

4) Drugs & Vandalism

No matter how hard you try, sometimes you hire the wrong people. You can’t always be aware, so installing and monitoring security cameras is a huge help in detecting vandalism and theft. Security cameras are both a deterrent as well as a solution.

5) Stealing

Theft! Oh boy – whether it is your employees or your customers who steal, it is extremely disappointing. Having instant access to security footage  – a live feed – can help you detect patterns and catch a thief in the act.

6) Roberries

Not all robberies happen at banks. Other businesses can also be targeted – having a panic button for your employees to keep them safe is a must – just read this story of Heather who survived an armed robbery. This traumatic experience has made Heather a force to be reconned with as she is now spear-heading Myrtle beach Self Defense, but the sad part is that she has already begged her employers to install panic buttons for the safety of herself and her staff and they had simply refused.

Talk to us about protecting yourself and your staff.

7) Informational and Cyber Security Breaches

Last but not least, security breaches also involve internet breaches, WiFi hacking, and other online dangers. While we do not have a solution for cybersecurity at Strand Security, we do want to help raise awareness of this growing threat against your business. Not having a secure Wifi system leaves you open for all sorts of misery.

The Best Location for Your Outdoor Security Cameras

where to place your outdoor security cameras

Do You Currently Have Any Outdoor Security Cameras?

If you have security cameras in and around your home, let us ask you some questions!

  • How often do you check your camera?
  • How often is there maintenance done on your security cameras?
  • When was the last time your cameras were serviced?
  • Do you know how to clean around your cameras?
  • How old are your cameras?
  • Did you check your camera settings after the last hurricane?

If you are a bit baffled and don’t have all the answers, no worries. Many people are of the belief that’s it is best to install-and-forget!

We don’t agree and we will tell you why, in this article today!

What Are you Protecting Outside Your Home?

At some point, you decided you had a need for outdoor security cameras and purchased them. Someone installed them for you because we know that DIY jobs are not the best choice when you deal with security.

Are the needs you had when you purchased your security cameras the same as your needs now?

Families change. Business change.

Shouldn’t your security plan change, too?

If you’ve never had any cameras installed, something must have happened that you are reading this and inquiring about getting security cameras for your home or business!

What Are You Protecting Inside Your Home?

How about inside your home? Who and what are you protecting?

As babies grow into toddlers, then kids, and then teens, the need to monitor certain areas of your home changes.

If you’ve not thought about the position of your security cameras for years, it’s a good idea to update your security plan. Work with your local security systems dealer to upgrade, update and (re)install cameras that work for your current needs!

One example might be that while you had small children, you had a camera installed in the playroom, but now you might want one in the garage or game room; whichever spot your teenagers hang out!

Not All Outdoor Security Cameras Are Created Equal!

Just know not all security cameras are created equal and they do need an update now and then.

We have several resources for you to check things out.

What is the Best Location for Outdoor Security Cameras?

Now that you have a better understanding of what security cameras are capable of and how they work, here are the places you should consider installing outdoor security cameras.

?Front Door

Around 34% of burglars enter through the front door; place the camera at the second-floor level so that the burglar can not reach up and disable your camera.

?Back Door

Most backdoors cannot be seen from the street. Place a camera pointed at the backdoor to spy on possible intruders.

? Backyard (Gates)

Animals, pets, neighborhood kids and burglars might be using the backyard and a backyard gate to approach your home. Keep on eye on your kids and pets with your camera; keep an eye out for intruders, too.

? Basement Window and/or Stairs

If you have a basement, or outside stairs to a second-floor landing, you should be placing a camera pointed at those stairs.

? Ground Floor Window

Any ground floor window not accessible from the yard and not in full view of the street could be used as an entry point. Place a camera near every such window.

Additional Location Ideas for Security Cameras

Sometimes you want to disguise your cameras, especially if the cameras themselves would be a target to get stolen.

Disguise your cameras and hang them in/on

  • large trees
  • barn gabels
  • garage roofs
  • porches
  • dog house
  • roof of playset
  • flagpole
  • large (potted) plants
  • outdoor shower area
  • pool deck
