Visitors are a common sight at corporate workplaces, factories, schools, hospitals, housing societies, and many more facilities to count. In the case of places like recreation centres, malls and other retail outlets, visitors are the main focus of the business – generally encouraged.
Considering the wider scope of the visitor entry in the urban settlements, there are potential risks associated, if a complete visitor management system is not in place. Let us look at those risks in brief.
Unknown Visitors Could Be A Threat
When we talk about visitors in general, there may be new faces entering a facility for the first time. This is a common scenario seen in every small to large facilities. When we talk about an unknown visitor, they may be genuine or illegal.
Now, how an unknown visitor with bad intentions may get entry into a facility? Unknown visitors may enter false information about themselves including their name, workplace or residential address at the gate and even provide false information as to whom they want to meet. Especially, when manual visitor management systems are in place, unknown visitors may enter their information in the logbook in illegible writing. Or, they may ignore to sign out while distracting the security guards. There are companies and corporate offices that issue gate pass to the visitors. In such cases, illegal visitors may misuse gate pass to gain access to the facility and use it repeatedly.
When illegal visitors gain access to facilities these are the general risks that have actually been reported to have taken place in different parts of the country.
- Incidents of theft and loss of valuable assets from all types of small to large private/public organisations and residential apartments.
- Child abuse and child abduction in schools and housing societies.
- The lifting of newborn babies from hospitals.
- Loss of sensitive patient information from hospitals.
- Physical violence and terrorist attacks in malls and other public facilities.
Furthermore, it is important to remember that security breaches do not happen suddenly in a single attempt. Thieves, sexual predators, criminals or terrorists conduct surveillance of visitor entry systems before targeting them.
