The security of our businesses, assets and ourselves

We value our businesses, cherish our assets, care for our own well-being and that of our
customers and work colleagues (well, most of them!).

I have become ever more security conscious, partially due to the recent rise in crime, but
because my business is more than a source of income, it’s my child and its security is non
comprisable.

Each year, crime against small firms in the UK costs more than £12 billion ANNUALLY!

It’s easy to see why business owners like me are looking to increase their security.
There are many security providers out there who provide a full range of security solutions,
but who can you really trust and put your full confidence in?

Security Industry Authority – Approved Contractors Scheme

Using a security provider who holds approval to the Security Industry Authority (SIA)
Approved Contractors Scheme (ACS), gives the confidence which consumers are searching
for.

The SIA is the organisation responsible for regulating the private security industry in the UK,
in accordance with the security act 2001. The SIA carry out annual assessments, ensuring
that the standards of the security providers they certify, remain at a consistently high level.

Holding SIA ACS approval provides independent reassurance of the security providers
commitment to providing a quality service and that operates professionally – therefore, a
provider which consumers can trust and have confidence that their requirements and high
expectations, will be continuously met.
