Business security is the focus of the Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce’s first Business-4-Breakfast networking seminar of the fall series.

Warren Smith, rural programs co-ordinator with the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP Safe Communities Unit, will give a general overview of business security risk on Wednesday, Sept. 14.

The networking seminar will take place at Glad Tidings Church  Hall, 2570 Pleasant Valley Road. Doors open at 7 a.m. with breakfast served at 7:15 a.m. Smith’s presentation runs from 7:30-9 a.m.

Smith will speak on aspects of business security. Topics covered will include risk avoidance, risk reduction and risk spreading. The presentation will also include information on best practices for security systems and procedures.

All aspects of available physical security measures will be discussed.  Learn how to identify what are areas of risk for your business, and discover simple steps that can be taken to avoid making yourself a target.

“This will provide an educational opportunity  to our members and local businesses designed to assist them  in ensuring their businesses have addressed any security issues they may have,  while providing important networking opportunities,” said Armstrong Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce president Sandra Starke. “We look forward to having Warren join us and address questions facing area businesses.”
