Growing Need of Physical Security

2020 has been an unsettling year for everyone around the globe. The need for physical security has grown because of the Covid-19 pandemic. Businesses operating in the digital age are constantly exposed to security threats. With ever-evolving technology, these threats will come from everywhere, reinforcing our belief in enforcing physical protection and safeguarding our citizens and systems against theft and loss. It is difficult to create a stable digital environment without maintaining the physical security of premises and equipment.

Security Fact Check

They were asked about the physical security impacts of COVID-19 as well as the issues facing organisations as they look to reopen their doors.

The Need for Security

The report explains that 75% of the respondents have unanimously agreed to the fact that Covid-19 has increased the importance of physical security in their organizations. Nearly, Sixty per cent of respondents said they see a need for cloud-based technology improvements instantly or are considering it in the near future.

Another reason why physical security has gained momentum in the organizational structure is that several business houses struggled with continuing their operations over the last year. Not having a centralized security solution in place hampered their everyday operations to a large extent.
In terms of technology, 61% of respondents said that integration is their most important target for 2021, and 26% said that technology for implementing touch tracing, social distancing, and safe building enforcement criteria is crucial for pandemic response.
