How do I protect my small business?

Business Insurance

By Anne Valentino | November 2, 2017

If you are a small business owner you are most likely heavily invested in your company – financially emotionally and timewise. A lot of toil and sweat goes into getting a venture up and running. You want to make sure everything that you have put into it is protected. There are several important things that you can do to safeguard your small business and its assets. Below are just a few steps you need to take to give you the peace of mind that comes with knowing your company is secure.

Physical Protection

Practically speaking securing your office and/or work environment is critical. You’ll want to protect all assets including your data stock or inventory building and of course the people. The amount and type of protection required will vary by company and industry.

Start by following the building codes and outfitting your office with the appropriate alarms for smoke and CO and providing fire and first aid equipment. This will help ensure that your property – and people – remain safe in the event of a fire or gas leak.

You’ll also want to protect access to things like computers files and inventory. Locks alarms cameras fences and even security guards are all options.

Finally make sure everyone is aware of the processes around security. It’s not much use to have an alarm system and locking door and gate if employees don’t set or lock them!

Protecting Your Small Business with Insurance

Nowadays you simply can’t be in any sort of business without having the right insurance coverages. Traditionally businesses would getcommercial insurance policieswhich cover property and assets as well as liability coverage that is necessary to protect against legal and/or medical issues that arise as a result of injury or property damage.

Another type of insurance that you will want to look into to protect your small business iscommercial vehicle insurance. If you have company cars or use your own for such work-related tasks you absolutely need to make certain that they are adequately covered.

As we live in an increasingly digital society more and more small businesses are realizing the importance of having cyber insurance. Essentially this covers your company against data breaches and hacks which can in turn expose personal information such as credit card numbers.

Cyber Security

Having cyber insurance is one thing you can do when it comes to getting a better handle on your small business’s digital and technological safety but there are also practices and software that you can use to help prevent against the cyber vulnerability. Many actually outsource their cybersecurity; working with a firm that specializes in protecting your data is definitely a wise move. On your own you can look into encryption software storing personal information on a cloud-based server and also maintaining tight internet usage and site access policies amongst your staff are all good practices to institute.

The key is to keep your small business safe in all aspects. As far as the insurances are concerned you may want to start bytalking to your brokerand finding out which policies and coverages might be best for your company.
