Cannabis: 5 security best practice tips for grow operators

In April of this year, we presented a security best practices session for grow operators at O’Cannabiz 2019, held at the International Centre in Mississauga. Our vice-president of sales and business development for cash services, Rob Murray, and our business development director, Adolfo Proietti, discussed five ways in which cannabis producers can safeguard their high-value products. Here are 5 security best practice tips they shared for grow operators:

The security provider should have the expertise to help you identify gaps in your current security measures and create an action plan to improve your physical security by building safety and fire prevention practices.

The work of a Security Guard requires a respected enforcement authority and good self-control.

When choosing a security supplier, inquire about the firm’s experience in installing systems for heavily regulated industries and familiarity with Health Canada requirements. According to Adolfo, “It’s not a good idea to do the bare minimum to get the approval from Health Canada; just because you get clearance from them doesn’t mean you should stop there because people can still rob you.”

Train your staff for the worst-case scenario by using proven methods for reacting in an active shooter or bomb threat situation.
