Cyberattacks against credit unions are on the rise. As such, protecting their networks is top of mind for security managers.
It’s just as critical for credit union facility managers and/or security managers to pay attention to the physical security of their buildings.
Here are some tips to help you protect your employees, your members and your assets:
- Install a burglar alarm system that includes perimeter alarms to detect an attempted intrusion into your facility, vault, safe, night depository and ATM.
- Install IP video surveillance as it is one of main tools a credit union can employ to help detect internal fraud as well as help police investigate a robbery. Internet Protocol (IP) cameras offer resolutions many times higher than analog cameras, enabling you to get clearer images from wider angles. IP cameras also cover more ground in one shot, which means you can save money because you can install fewer cameras to monitor your facility. Install the cameras in strategic locations, including lobbies to monitor people entering and exiting your building as well as moving around inside; behind the teller area to better capture people’s faces; and outside the building. You should also install a purpose-built ATM surveillance camera.
