What do Big Security Companies do For Me?


We all know that there is plenty of personal security out there for you and your family. You can have a security system installed in your home (and most do) so that you know that there is a group of people paid to keep an eye on your home twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. We’re even happier when our devices allow us to monitor our home (and our kids) personally! But, is that all there is to it? Many people see security guards and believe that they are just acting for the “big guy” at the top. Is that true? Let’s take a look into what these big security firms offer:

Concierge Security

Has nothing to do with your right? Wrong. If you have a condo in a high-rise or even live in an apartment building, they need someone at the front desk. That’s right, they hire concierge security. These people are the ones that likely jump to mind first as they’re the ones that help you right where you live!

Corporate Security

What could corporate security have to do with you, huh? Well, chances are that if you work somewhere outside your home, these guys are watching out for you. They work in office buildings to protect companies, but they’re also there to protect the employees that work in that skyscraper, as well. So, if you work in one of those buildings, that means you!

Armed Transportation

How could armed transportation affect you in anyway? You drive a car, not an armored car! True, but the reason why they’re driving that armored car may be more complicated than you think. They’re transporting money from banks and major financial institutions.They are also willing to put their lives on the line to do it. Where do you put your money? In a bank and they are there to protect those hard-earned wages that you work for every day!

Mobile Patrol

This seems pretty far removed from our personal every-day worries, but this service does protect all of those buildings that we work in, keep our money in, even shop at! Everyone might joke that a break-in or other form of vandalism might just give them a day off, but worse things can happen without security: Imagine if you’re work burned down and you had no work to go to at all!

Events Security

Being in a big, celebrating crowd has a greater sense of danger now after recent world events, and that’s why security companies are at their most valuable here. They help to make sure that things run smoothly at a game or concert, and most importantly, they make sure that everyone stays safe. Whether you’re at a music concert, a football game, or a major convention, this is a time when you want security there to protect you.

Institutional Security

The worst thing that can happen to you is finding out that someone you know has been in an accident, has cancer, or is otherwise sick. You get that terrible call that your mother, father, or another loved one in the hospital. Of course, you want to know that they are safe and secure in their rooms day and night. That’s also why security matters. Not only that, but they are also hired to protect buildings that have your information like your Driver’s License and other personal information!

Neighbourhood Protection

Now, this one is probably pretty obvious to you. If you live in a gated community, or one that needs someone to keep an eye on it, that’s where this service comes in. Let’s be honest, there are cities and neighbourhoods where the police can be spread a little thin. This service adds that additional layer of protection to ensure that you and your entire family is safe, and who can think of anything more important than that?

Security Consulting

So? This can’t possibly have anything to do with you, right? Well, any event requires protection and prevention, which means that you have to plan ahead. None of this happens with people simply walking through the door and showing their ticket! Security consulting is that planning to ensure that events go off without a hitch, or a disaster. Good consulting means better protection, and that means better protection in all the areas we’ve listed above!

As you can see, on the surface of it, security people always just seem to be around, which makes you think of them as having no impact on your life, whatsoever. However, I hope you’ve realized, through this article, that security has far more to do with improving your life and keeping you safe, then you thought. So next time you see that security guard, smile and let them know they’re appreciated. You might just even want to thank them!
