Over the last two years, many retailers have shut up shop. Some have moved from a physical to online retail space. So, it is not surprising that the latest statistics from The British Retail Consortium have shown a 50% increase in cyber attacks.
Furthermore, out of the £1.2 billion spent on crime prevention, over £160 million was spent on cybercrime prevention (BRC,2021).
The pandemic’s effect on UK businesses is everlasting. Even as we transition back into pre-COVID-19 normalcy. Leading to the question, what are the benefits of retail Security?
Whether physical or online, retail security is crucial to loss prevention. However, having a retail security officer present offers more value than just a theft deterrent. Seeing an authoritative figure at an entrance and on patrol in a store will automatically put customers and staff at ease. Should any threats arise, they’ll be there to handle the situation.
