If you don't have questions about how to improve the security at your business, that's not a comforting sign — especially before holiday shopping ramps up.
With technology transforming the world of safes, alarms, surveillance systems, and other essential physical and electronic security features, there's plenty for jewelers to ponder. Couple that with how to improve procedural security by educating staff and there's an abundance to consider.
A lapse in security at any point during the year creates unnecessary risk for your jewelry business. Given the impact holiday shopping has on your year-end results, weaknesses in your security program become even more dangerous.
That's why David Sexton, vice president of loss prevention at Jewelers Mutual Insurance Group, covered four areas jewelers need to focus on in the webinar Holiday Security for Jewelry Businesses.
If the crowds of Black Friday made you worry about your jewelry store security, you might be in for a surprise.
Business Insider reported that "Super Saturday" (which falls on December 17 in 2016) will have more shopper visits than the post-Thanksgiving pandemonium. Also, in terms of sales, Black Friday is one spot behind Super Saturday again - but both fall behind the Friday before Christmas, December 23.
So what does this mean for the security of your business?
