Improving Communication Between Business Owners And Security Professionals
One of the hardest things as a security professional is to communicate the benefits that you bring to the business owner. Often, security professionals are seen as a necessary cost, or worse, the barriers to good business.
Fortunately, there are several things you can do to drastically improve your value in an organization that relies on improving communication. Other than that, you need to have the best security equipment like commercial CCTV and access control systems to be accurate at work.

The first thing you need to realize is that communication is a two-way street. Too often we feel misunderstood and we blame others for communicating bad or offensive.
One of the best things you can do to build a strong foundation of communication is to look at how you communicate your thoughts and ideas to others.
One way to communicate an idea or thought is to write it and share it with interested parties. As they read, write the main points you are trying to make. Once they are finished, ask them what they think is the main point.
If what you are trying to say in accordance with the main points they read the message, then you communicate well. If what you write is not in accordance with the main points of interest for your readers from your message, then it is a good indication that you may have to practice how you communicate your thoughts and ideas.
