As we move further into the 21st century, the world becomes an increasingly dangerous place. With new technologies and ways for criminals to exploit them, it’s more important than ever to be aware of the physical security threats that could affect your business in 2022. In this blog post, we will discuss five of the most likely physical security threats that your business will face in the next few years. Stay safe!
The top five security threats detected in 2022 are workplace violence, crime/theft, natural disasters, biosecurity, and the push to move employees completely remote.
Workplace violence is always a security concern, but with the current political and social climate, we will likely see an increase in violence in the workplace. In 2022, employers should be on the lookout for signs of potential workplace violence and take steps to prevent it.
Physical security and preventative measures can assist when reducing workplace violence. Some security solutions to consider are security cameras, security guards, and panic buttons. Having a security protocol in place will help keep your business secure, while
Crime and Theft
Crime and theft are always major concerns for businesses, but as technology advances, so do the ways criminals can exploit it. In 2022, businesses should be particularly aware of cybercrime and data breaches. Physical security measures like security cameras and alarms are still important, but they must be backed up by strong cyber security measures.

Natural disasters can strike at any time, and often without warning. Businesses should have a plan in place for how to deal with natural disasters, as well as security measures to protect their employees and property. In 2022, we will likely see an increase in natural disasters due to climate change.
Some security measures you can take to prepare for natural disasters are installing security cameras that can withstand extreme weather conditions, having a backup power source, and investing in flood insurance.
With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging on in 2022, biosecurity will continue to be a major concern. Businesses should take steps to protect their employees from the virus, as well as any other potential diseases that could spread.
Some security measures you can take to protect against disease are providing employees with personal protective equipment, increasing cleaning and disinfecting procedures, and implementing temperature checks.
The Push to Move Employees Completely Remote
With the COVID-19 pandemic continuing into 2022, many businesses will be forced to move their employees completely remote. This poses a whole new set of security concerns, as businesses will need to find ways to secure their data and prevent cyber attacks.
Some security measures you can take to protect your business when moving employees remote are investing in a VPN, using two-factor authentication, and encrypting all data.
As the dynamic of work changes, the way we approach security has to change too.

Security cameras, security guards, and access control systems are important but not enough on their own. To be fully protected, businesses need to take a holistic security approach that encompasses all aspects of security: cyber, physical, and people.
