From Cost to Revenue Center in the Wake of Increasing Crime Rates

As the importance of physical security continues to rise, organizations must shift their perspective and view it as a revenue center rather than a cost. Industry leaders are already starting to understand the value that physical security can provide, in both direct and indirect ways, and this trend is expected to continue in the future. By utilizing crime statistics and optimizing security processes, organizations can decrease maintenance expenses while increasing operational efficiencies.
