If your business handles extremely sensitive information, both digital information as well as hard copy, you want to make sure that there are stringent security procedures in place. You don't want non-employees to get into any information or into any location they shouldn't be in; nor do you want employees to handle things that they aren't cleared for. There are ways that you can use that will make information and locations as safe as you can. One way that you can do it is to use biometrics as an integral part of your security system.
Biometrics refers to using parts of a person's body as an authentication confirmation tool. There are certain parts of your body that are completely individual to you, and you can be identified using any of those parts. They include your fingerprints, your earprints, and your retina. Your retina is measured by the blood vessels in your retina. No one will have the exact same configuration in your retina as you do.
Your retina and fingerprints are the most commonly used identifiers with biometric systems because they are generally the most easily accessible. Fingerprint scanners don't have to be very big and can be used on everything from file cabinets to doors, while retina scanners are generally larger and usually get used to unlock secure doors.
Biometrics work really well in multi-level authentication systems. Multi-level authentication systems require more than one way to certify that you are who you are. The more levels of authentication there are the more secure a door, computer, or file is. The authentication systems usually depends on something you know and then something you have. For example, if you have multi-level authentication set up for your email, you will need to know your password and then you will need to either provide a fingerprint, if the system uses biometrics, or a code sent to a smart device. Only if you have both of those things can you get into your email. You can combine a password, code, and fingerprint to even get into the computer to log into it to get information for a secure network.
You can do the same thing for a door. For example, you may have to use a PIN or keycard to start the process and then provide biometric information to get into a secure room. The PIN or keycard could get a person into certain rooms while they need a retina scan to get into the next level of security. That would be something that the security company would program into the overall controlling programs for the security system.
If you want to make sure that documents and information is as safe as possible, biometrics is one way to do it. For more information, contact A Tech / Easy Living Store or a similar company.
Many homeowners focus their home security systems on the home itself but neglect to cover the other structures on the property and the property itself. Do you have an outbuilding, shed or garage that you use to store things in? Do you put those expensive inflatable decorations out in your lawn each holiday? There are probably several things outside of your home that warrant protection as much as the things that you keep inside of your home. This blog will show you the security measures that you can take to ensure that everything on your property is protected as best as it can be.
