ICT and the Retail Industry
Loss of assets through shoplifting, theft, and burglary pose the greatest risk to the retail sector as it threatens profitability and can impact on the economic viability of the business. Robberies or armed hold-ups present a similar threat, but with the added risk to staff safety.
Premises need to be readily accessible to the general public, yet protected from shoplifters and other criminal elements. Only authorized staff should have access to restricted areas such as stock rooms, and in most cases access should be limited to opening hours to prevent employee theft.
