Securing More Than Data

equipment assurance Some time ago, we lost a total station two days after it was released, after paying even an English-style private detective, we ended up deciding to pay property insurance for all surveying equipment that exceeded $ 1,000. I also have a friend who lost whatever amount of Magellan GPS equipment he was distributing by the time Hurricane Mitch hit Central America, he literally lost the coordinates to his mind.

It will sound aloof to some, but talking about asset insurance is not an issue outside of the technology market, especially since the tools and equipment are as valuable as the life of the company.
But why do I think it's worth investing in team safety?

1. The life of the geomatic world is data

There are costs that have no comparison, like being a server that is worth $ 4,000, with programs installed that can reach $ 15,000 but with data that exceeds $ 300,000.
To believe that an antivirus, energy backup, fire wall and backup system are sufficient can be a limited optic in the face of the possibility of a robbery that can often be from the inside and not by a thief with a black trench coat and shirt .

2. Prevention is a healthy measure

The position that could not happen to me ends when it happens to a close friend or family member. Be it an illness, accident, theft or natural phenomenon, lamenting afterwards is an ineffective measure. But also having staff implies thinking about the costs that can have to keep them healthy and protected at all times, it does not matter that we have a certified security code.

3. Nowadays the offer of security services is varied

If we look at the case of a company dedicated to providing security services, we realize that it is not necessary to pay complex insurance in which the soul is sold to the unknown. In addition to this, most of the large insurance companies have local coverage through representatives or reinsurers.

If you do not think insurance is too useful, I can tell you the other part of the story, that of the detective
