Here are some general suggestions that may increase your security:
Install key-card access systems at main entrances and on other appropriate doors.
Issue access control badges, with recent photographs, to all employees and authorized contractors.
Upgrade perimeter control systems with intercoms and closed circuit monitoring devices.
Keep master and extra keys locked in a security office.
Develop crisis communication among key personnel and security office involving intercoms, telephones, duress alarms or other concealed communications.
Have a back up communication system, like two-way radio, in case of phone failure.
Locate executive offices near the inner core of the building to afford maximum protection and avoid surveillance from the outside.
Arrange office space so unescorted visitors can be easily noticed.
Have staff follow strict access control procedures, don' t allow exceptions.
Keep important papers locked in secure cabinets.
Keep offices neat and orderly to identify strange objects or unauthorized people more easily.
Empty trash receptacles often.
Open packages and large envelopes in executive offices only if the source or sender is positively identified.
Keep closets, service openings, telephone and electrical closets locked at all times. Protect crucial communications equipment and utility areas with an alarm system.
Avoid stairwells and other isolated areas. Try not to ride the elevator alone with a suspicious person.
Don't work late alone or on a routine basis.
Keep publicly accessible restroom doors locked and set up a key control system. If there is a combination lock, only office personnel should open the lock for visitors.
