Kardo Locksmith had an office rekey project in Los Angeles CA. The business manager called for an office rekey with an updated master key system which included rekeying the filing cabinets since they had some new employees. We responded to their request for a locksmith Los Angeles and scheduled a convenient appointment time as the business owner was looking for a commercial locksmith. We were able to completely rekey the offices, the filing cabinets and provided them with an updated master key system for their office location.
Every business wants to maintain the security of its facilities, employees, and valuables. Despite advancements in technology, there is no more effective way to keep your facility physically safe and secure than with locks and keys. Setting up the most effective and secure key control for your business includes a few different components, and one of those is your master key system. Master keys give high-level access and efficient key management for business owners and employees who need to be able to open many doors easily.
Having a master key system can allow key holders to carry fewer keys and gain access to multiple areas or doors where others can't. The most important thing to maintain security for your business with a master key system is to guard them closely. Your master key system should be thought out and secure as the rest of your key control. Master key systems can help you set up and maintain security throughout multiple facilities. Here are a few elements of a master key system you will need to consider for your business.
A vital part of a secure master key system is the use of keys that cannot be copied without consent. Restricted key blanks are not available on the open market, so if your master keys are restricted, they cannot be duplicated by your local locksmith or hardware store, and they can only be duplicated with authorization given to your key provider. In the event that you are not using restricted master keys, you open your business to security threats and have little control over how to handle those threats.
Lessen your master key holders
The best thing to do across all your lock systems is to lessen the number of individuals who have keys to only those who need individual access to specific entry points. Think about how you can group access to specific entry points, single locations, or organizational groups to lessen the cases of a single master key having total access across your organization. When creating a master key system, consider how you can limit master key holders to only the right people while allowing more specific and restricted access to other key holders.
Be ready to rekey
Losing a master key is a major security risk that should be addressed quickly to ensure no security breaches are made. In the event that a master key is lost, a quick response is significantly more vital since you need to change the key on every entry point associated with that master key, which comes with a high price. The best thing to have are rekeyable locks so you can avoid expensive lock replacements.
Key tracking software
Monitoring keys in your business can be tedious or easy, depending on the approach. While a spreadsheet or paper trail may work for smaller organizations with fewer keys to monitor, larger organizations with multiple key holders and levels of access need more comprehensive key tracking capabilities. Cloud-based tracking software is the ideal approach to track your keys.
