Flatirons Locksmiths: Rekey Your Business Regularly For Better Security
If you’re a business owner, you probably had your establishment rekeyed whenever you took possession. Since that time, you may not have thought about rekeying your locks much. That doesn’t mean it’s not recommended, as there are several instances that would warrant rekeying the locks, even if you haven’t moved to a new location.
The biggest reason to rekey your locks would be a turnover in personnel. If a manager who had access to the keys recently quit, or even worse was fired, you should change your locks. This is true even if that person turned in his or her keys upon leaving, as you still cannot be sure if extra keys might have been made and retained.
If you’ve given keys to a contractor so that certain work could be performed, you may want to think about having your locks rekeyed as well. Unless you plan to allow access on an ongoing basis, you need to protect yourself against the possibility that your business keys may have fallen into the wrong hands, and could be used for illicit purposes later.
Should your business suffer a loss, and lock tampering has been ruled out, this could also be an indication that an unauthorized individual has gained access to your keys. In this instance, you should have your locks rekeyed right away, and may want to consider limiting access to your new keys in case the incident was a result of an inside job.
You may also want to rekey your locks in order to provide master keys for certain individuals or to ensure all the locks in a particular department are keyed alike.
