Video Surveillance is NOT as good as SECURITY GUARDS

Please Share with your friends and business owners in your area and LIKE our page. THANK YOU
Together we build a stronger and safer country for us all.

Video surveillance is an excellent tool for keeping a site secure, but unfortunately, it’s only as good as the person monitoring it.

Video surveillance is an excellent tool for keeping a site secure, but unfortunately, it’s only as good as the person monitoring it. Having trained security personnel, capable of monitoring CCTV and patrolling the premises can make the difference between a costly break-in and a quiet night.

Imagine this scenario…

Someone is interested in your premises, they’ve noticed security cameras but no security guards. They come back that night, and notice the same… CCTV but no manned guards or mobile patrols. They continue to monitor the premises over the coming days and nights until they’re confident that video surveillance is the only security measure taken at this site.

They return one night, prepared with equipment to break in. Their faces are covered and they’re wearing dark clothing. It’s overcast, with little moonlight - it’s no coincidence that this night has been chosen. By now they are familiar with where the security cameras are facing and can easily slip through the darkness, avoiding, where possible, being caught on camera.

The next morning there’s no lock to open as it’s been cut and is lying on the floor. The CCTV is checked immediately, and whilst two figures can be seen breaking in and trespassing, it’s impossible to make out their faces and they have avoiding being seen where possible. Police are called, but the footage is dark and the figures are difficult to describe - the only evidence to go on from the CCTV is an approximate height.

Imagine this scenario…

Someone is interested in your premises, they spend the next few evenings ‘innocently’ passing by. There’s CCTV in place, and a security guard. The security guard is there every night, all through the night. There’s a sign on the gate reading ‘Carter Solutions & Services Ltd’ - a quick search shows that this is a professional and competent security provider, meaning the security officer will be a highly trained individual. It’s not worth getting caught.

It’s up to you on whether you feel CCTV is enough of a deterrent to avoid a potential crime. But one thing is certain, having a trained security officer on-site will increase the risk of getting caught. Whether they’re doing mobile patrols, manning the entrance, or monitoring CCTV, having someone you can trust at the site will either prevent a crime, or increase the likelihood of an intruder being caught at the scene. The choice is yours.

Personal Theft Safety

Be Aware of Your Surroundings

Robbery can happen at any time. It is important to always be aware of your surroundings but to also know how to protect yourself should you ever be put into a robbery situation.

Always Protect Yourself

Walk with your head up, make eye contact with others, have confidence and move at a steady pace.women behind her shoulder at robber

Stay in well-lit, heavily traveled areas. Avoid alleys, dark parking lots or secluded areas.

If you wear headphones while walking, keep the volume low so you can hear other noises
Avoid texting and walking as your attention is not on where you are going or who is coming toward you.

Don’t walk alone at night. Walk in groups as there is always safety in numbers.

If you are going to a particular destination, let someone know you are on your way and approximately what time you will arrive.

If you are carrying a wallet, keep it in your purse or bag and carry it close to your body. Do not leave personal items unattended at any time.

Vary your route. Take a different path so you don’t become predictable.

What If I Get Robbed?

Don’t panic. Stay calm and breathe and just let the robber have whatever they want. Your personal safety is worth more than anything you may have on your person.

Remember what the robber looks like. Look for distinguishing marks, scars and tattoos. Compare your height and weight to that of the attacker.

If the aggressor states they have a weapon, assume this is true and that they may use it. Fully cooperate with their instructions.

If you see someone else getting robbed, report it to the police immediately, when it is safe for you to do so.


After a Robbery

Watch the direction in which the attacker flees. If they are in a vehicle, get the color, make, model and license plate number.

Notify the police as soon as you can and give them all of the characteristics of the attacker. If your wallet was stolen, notify your bank and credit card companies.

Go to a safe place. If you are not near your destination, go to a public place for help. If you are near your destination, get there and lock the doors.

If there are witnesses, ask them to wait for the police, or obtain their contact information.

Flash Mob Safety

A flash mob describes a group of people who assemble suddenly in a public place to perform an unusual act, such as a pillow fight or singing a song and then disperse. Social media is often used to announce a time and place for the mob to meet. Flash mobs, which are illegal in some areas, can become out of control with upwards of hundreds to thousands of people participating. They can be a nuisance to innocent bystanders and area businesses. While a majority of flash mobs are for entertainment purposes, some have been known to be dangerous.
Key Concerns

Safety of participants and bystanders - Those involved, as well as non-participants, may be injured during the performance.

Lack of event control - Especially for events in which there is no warning.

Property and/or assets could be damaged or destroyed.flash_mob_safety


Protect Yourself

If you are sent a message to join a flash mob, alert local authorities so they are aware and can prepare to secure the area.

Stay away from the area. People involved tend to block the way of innocent bystanders, causing a hazard.

If you have to be in the area and are aware that a flash mob is set to take place, arrive early and stay in a safe area away from the performance.

Do not attempt to stop a flash mob.


If You are at Work

If you notice an unusually large amount of people gathering around your place of employment, lock all windows and doors and contact local authorities.

Assess if the situation presents a hazard to co-workers and customers. Authorities will work to contain the mob into one area, preventing it from growing larger.

Inform co-workers and customers of what may happen so they are aware of the situation.

Have a plan for what you and co-workers should do to protect themselves and customers if a flash mob occurs near you.


Examples of Flash Mobs

Hallelujah Chorus - Safety hazards include multiple people standing on chairs.

Freeze flash mob - Safety hazards include people who froze at the base of the escalator, blocking patrons. In addition, people had to maneuver their way around the participants.

Mall dancers - This emphasizes the need for bystanders to avoid confrontation unless the flash mob participants are endangering others.

Protecting Your Home

In many cases of home burglaries, thieves enter the house through a door or window that was left unlocked.

The fact is, thieves are “lazy,” and many burglaries can be prevented by using simple strategies to deter them from attempting to enter your home.
Keep in mind that there’s more at stake than your possessions — a significant number of violent crimes that occur in the home are committed during household burglaries.

Following are some tips on how to protect your home and your family from burglars. burglar in a house

Lock all doors and windows, including your garage door, when you leave the house and while sleeping.

Install a dead-bolt and/or a secondary locking system on doors that lead outside. Using a lock that can only be operated from the inside is an extra security measure.

Remember that patio doors with glass panels can be especially vulnerable. Consider installing double-cylinder locks, where you need a key to unlock both sides, so that a burglar can’t enter your home simply by breaking the glass next to the lock. Also, insert a board at the bottom of the door, to prevent the door from sliding.

Be suspicious of anyone who asks to enter your home for any type of “maintenance” reason. There are numerous cases of impersonating electricians or gas line inspectors who turn out to be dangerous. Always demand to see an official company ID.

Install peepholes or wide-angle viewers in your doors.

Replace burned-out light bulbs quickly. Thieves like homes with inadequate lighting. Consider incorporating lighting into your landscaping.

Keep trees and shrubs around doorways, windows and porches trimmed. The bushes that provide privacy also give burglars a place to hide. Dense shrubs can even make for a makeshift ladder, helping a thief into your home through a window.

Get involved in a neighborhood watch group. Local police departments can provide you with information on how to establish a watch group in your neighborhood.

Consider installing an alarm system.


While You’re Away

Use random access timers that automatically change what time your lights go on and off each night. Lighting patterns that vary appear more natural.
Ask a neighbor to park his or her car in your driveway.

Keep expensive items out of view from the yard or the street.

Have your mail and newspapers picked up by a neighbor or held at the post office.

Ask your neighbors to call the police if they notice any suspicious activity. Leave a phone number where you can be reached in case of an emergency.

Top 10 Secure Computing Tips

Don't ever say, "It won't happen to me." We are all at risk and the stakes are high - both for your personal and financial well-being and for the university's standing and reputation.

Tip #1 - You are a target to hackers

Don't ever say, "It won't happen to me." We are all at risk and the stakes are high - both for your personal and financial well-being and for the university's standing and reputation.

Cybersecurity is everyone's responsibility.
By following the tips below and remaining vigilant, you are doing your part to protect yourself and others.

Tip #2 - Keep software up-to-date

Installing software updates for your operating system and programs is critical. Always install the latest security updates for your devices:

Turn on Automatic Updates for your operating system.
Use web browsers such as Chrome or Firefox that receive frequent, automatic security updates.
Make sure to keep browser plug-ins (Flash, Java, etc.) up-to-date.

Tip #3 - Avoid Phishing scams - beware of suspicious emails and phone calls

Phishing scams are a constant threat - using various social engineering(link is external) ploys, cyber-criminals will attempt to trick you into divulging personal information such as your login ID and password, banking or credit card information.

Phishing scams can be carried out by phone, text, or through social networking sites - but most commonly by email.
Be suspicious of any official-looking email message or phone call that asks for personal or financial information.

Check out our Phishing Resources section for details about identifying phishing scams and protecting yourself.
Tip #4 - Practice good password management

We all have too many passwords to manage - and it's easy to take short-cuts, like reusing the same password. A password manager can help you to maintain strong unique passwords for all of your accounts. These programs can generate strong passwords for you, enter credentials automatically, and remind you to update your passwords periodically. UC Berkeley offers free LastPass Premium(link is external) to all users with a CalNet ID.

Our Protecting Your Credentials how-to article contains detailed recommendations for keeping your password safe.
Tip #5 - Be careful what you click

Avoid visiting unknown websites or downloading software from untrusted sources. These sites often host malware that will automatically install (often silently) and compromise your computer.

If attachments or links in the email are unexpected or suspicious for any reason, don't click on it.

ISO recommends using Click-to-Play(link is external) or NoScript(link is external), browser add-on features that prevent the automatic download of plug-in content (e.g., Java, Flash), and scripts that can harbor malicious code.

Tip #6 - Never leave devices unattended

The physical security of your devices is just as important as their technical security.
If you need to leave your laptop, phone, or tablet for any length of time - lock it up so no one else can use it.
If you keep protected data on a flash drive or external hard drive, make sure they're encrypted and locked up as well.
For desktop computers, lock your screen or shut-down the system when not in use.

Tip #7 - Safeguard Protected Data

Be aware of Protected Data that you come into contact with and its associated restrictions. Review the UCB Data Classification Standard to understand data protection level requirements. In general:

Keep high-level Protected Data (e.g., SSN's, credit card information, student records, health information, etc.) off of your workstation, laptop, or mobile devices.
Securely remove sensitive data files from your system when they are no longer needed.
Always use encryption when storing or transmitting sensitive data.

Unsure of how to store or handle sensitive data? Email us at [email protected](link sends e-mail).

Tip #8 - Use mobile devices safely

Considering how much we rely on our mobile devices and how susceptible they are to attack, you'll want to make sure you are protected:

Lock your device with a PIN or password - and never leave it unprotected in public.
Only install apps from trusted sources (Apple AppStore, Google Play).
Keep the device's operating system up-to-date.
Don't click on links or attachments from unsolicited emails or texts.
Avoid transmitting or storing personal information on the device.
Most handheld devices are capable of employing data encryption - consult your device's documentation for available options.
Use Apple's Find my iPhone(link is external) or the Android Device Manager(link is external) tools to help prevent loss or theft.

Tip #9 - Install antivirus/anti-malware protection

Only install these programs from a known and trusted source. Keep virus definitions, engines, and software up-to-date to ensure your programs remains effective.

Tip #10 - Back up your data

Back up regularly - if you are a victim of a security incident, the only guaranteed way to repair your computer is to erase and re-install the system.

Home Safety and Security Tips

When it comes to home security, homeowners must take a few necessary precautions to keep their households safe. In fact, it is hard to be too careful when preparing for common dangers and threats.

Most home safety tips talk about the importance of preventing fires, preparing against extreme weather and protecting the home from potential burglars. If you are a homeowner and have not taken precautions in any of these areas, the time to act is now.

Yet even though it’s important to prepare for large dangers, most household dangers are more subtle and require smaller fixes. For example, did you know that a carbon monoxide detector is one of the most important tools in protecting against hidden dangers? It alerts homeowners to the presence of a deadly odorless and colorless gas. Without it, residents would never know to evacuate.

Luckily, complete home safety is easy to achieve with a few simple steps. There are many ways to protect yourself, your family and your home from common risks and dangers. To learn more about securing your home and preventing tragedy, review the sections below.
Tip 1: Get a Carbon Monoxide Detector

A carbon monoxide detector is essential to have in every home, no matter where you live. Many homeowners falsely believe that these detectors are only necessary in houses with fuel-burning appliances. However, carbon monoxide (CO) can be present in many situations.

This is why every home safety checklist must include a CO detector. CO is a colorless, odorless gas that can be deadly in large amounts. CO originates from many sources, including:

Wood stoves.
Fireplaces.
Wood-pellet stoves.
Oil, propane or natural gas appliances.
Furnaces.
Space heaters.
Gas and diesel sources, like cars and generators.

A carbon monoxide detector measures the amount of CO in the air. Some small levels of CO are normal in houses with fuel-burning appliances. However, long-term exposure to high levels of CO causes residents to feel ill and may lead to death.

As with smoke detectors, residents should install one CO detector on each floor of the home. Other suggestions include one detector outside each sleeping area of the home in a common hallway. It is also a good idea to place a CO detector in the basement or the garage, especially if there are fuel-burning appliances in those areas.

Avoid installing a carbon monoxide detector in areas of high humidity, like a bathroom or sauna. It may give false readings or become defective. Also, do not install a CO detector anywhere that it could overeat, such as in the path of direct sunlight. Finally, keep CO detectors at least 5 feet away from cooking appliances.
Tip 2: Home Security Alarms

Home security alarms alert homeowners to potential intruders, burglars and other emergencies. A home security system comes with video cameras, motion sensors and wireless communication devices that provide complete protection.

DIY home security systems are ideal for homeowners interested in installing, connecting and monitoring their home security devices on their own. Rather than scheduling an installation with a team of professionals, they can purchase the system, order the equipment and begin the installation themselves.

There are many home security systems on the market, each one with unique features and various types of monitoring services. Some DIY home security systems involve monthly fees for professional monitoring. Others are completely self-monitoring, meaning the homeowner is responsible for viewing video feeds and recordings.

When purchasing a home safety and security system, you should keep these features in mind:

Mobile app: This lets you monitor your home no matter where you are. Receive push notifications, alerts and emails when something is amiss.
Connection type: Choose from wired or wireless connectivity. Wireless systems typically come with multiple sensors that communicate with one another.
Monitoring: Decide whether you want professional monitoring or would rather monitor your system on your own. This can save you money in monthly fees.

Tip 3: Install a Fire Alarm for Home Safety

A home fire alarm can be the difference between life and death. This makes fire alarms essential in every household. Homeowners should install at least one smoke detector on each floor of their house. It is best to install them inside or close to bedrooms. If several bedrooms share one common hallway, one smoke detector in the middle of the hallway may suffice.

Some home fire alarm systems are a bit more high-tech. Rather than beeping to alert residents to presence of smoke, the system will speak loudly over an intercom system. This is ideal for residents who tend to be heavy sleepers.

Aside from installing smoke detectors, homeowners should devise a home safety fire evacuation plan and share it with all members of the family. Households with young children should practice the plan to ensure all members remember the important evacuation steps, like staying away from hot door handles and crawling on the floor to avoid breathing in smoke.

Be sure to check the batteries on smoke detectors twice a year. Faulty smoke detectors do nothing to protect your family from fire. Some detectors beep when the battery begins to die, but do not rely on this warning sign. Schedule regular maintenance once every six months.
General Safety Tips

Home security is a broad subject that covers a wide array of tips and techniques. It is more than just installing a few devices and leaving the rest to technology. Homeowners must remain vigilant and take extra precautions to avoid common household dangers.

Many tips for home safety focus on preventing illness and injury in children and babies. Households with babies and young children must take time to baby-proof certain areas of the home for extra protection. This includes:

Locking medicine cabinets.
Keeping cleaning agents and poisonous chemicals out of reach.
Cover sharp corners with foam or soft padding.
Installing gates near staircases.
Covering door handles with childproof slips.
Keeping blind cords tied up top.
Anchoring heavy furniture to the walls.

Other home safety tips include suggestions for keeping the exterior of the home secure. These include:

Ensuring all locks and bolts are tight and secure.
Hiding spare keys in clever places.
Keeping garage doors closed.
Looking before opening the door.
Securing sliding glass doors with wooden or metal poles.
Keeping drapes or blinds shut.
