Res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial secu­ri­ty audits are an in-depth analy­sis of your secu­ri­ty mea­sures. A res­i­den­tial secu­ri­ty audit eval­u­ates the home­own­er’s mea­sures to make their home safe and pro­tect it from out­side intrud­ers. On the oth­er hand, a com­mer­cial secu­ri­ty audit eval­u­ates the steps a busi­ness takes to pro­tect the com­pa­ny from exter­nal and inter­nal threats. In this case, how employ­ees are mon­i­tored and trained also mat­ters.

How does it work?

A secu­ri­ty expert con­ducts this analy­sis, com­par­ing your secu­ri­ty mea­sures to pre-set stan­dards or rec­om­men­da­tions. This eval­u­a­tion can take var­i­ous forms, one of the most com­mon being a check­list that com­pares secu­ri­ty mea­sures to guide­lines. If you answer “no” to any of the ques­tions, this indi­cates an area where you can do more to improve secu­ri­ty in your home or busi­ness.

Who can com­plete them?

You can com­plete these audits your­self, as the check­lists are avail­able on the Ontario gov­ern­ment web­site. Sup­pose you’re still unsure how to con­duct a prop­er audit. In that case, you can also con­tact a secu­ri­ty com­pa­ny and ask for a secu­ri­ty expert to com­plete the audit once such com­pa­ny is PROTECTION PLUS ®. With a quick call, we can sched­ule to have an audit con­duct­ed for you.

When can it be done?

The home or busi­ness own­er is free to con­duct a res­i­den­tial or com­mer­cial secu­ri­ty audit at any time they choose.

When is the best time to do an audit?

A good time to con­duct an audit is when plan­ning to move to a new house. Based on the home­own­er’s efforts, a res­i­den­tial secu­ri­ty audit will tell you how safe the home is.

What does the audit tell me about being a busi­ness own­er?

It shows you what you’re doing well and pro­vides guide­lines on what you can do bet­ter.

What does the audit tell me about being a home­own­er?

From a home­own­er’s per­spec­tive, the res­i­den­tial secu­ri­ty audit will inform you whether you ade­quate­ly pro­tect your fam­i­ly and home from exter­nal threats. It reveals areas where you excel and high­lights oppor­tu­ni­ties to improve your home­’s secu­ri­ty against threats.
