The cost of burglary to your business
In the wholesale and retail sector, shoplifting accounts for 63% of all crime, with the average median cost per victim being £500. But, regardless of the nature of your business, if you use, store or stock expensive goods or equipment at your premises, then unfortunately you can become a victim of burglary.
Burglaries to businesses can be carried out in various ways, the more common methods are usually physical such as smash and grabs, opportunistic and sophisticated burglaries. But with technology being commonly used in all aspects of business, cyber crime can also be a threat. Burglary is not only a loss of stock or equipment, but it is a loss of security to employees and a loss of time to rebuild and replenish following the incident. Sadly, 12% of businesses experience burglary every year with an average cost of £3,986 per incident – that’s why it’s so important to make prevention your priority.
