Compliance and Security

Noah Stokes | CannaGuard Security

CannaBusinesses have unique security needs, and state requirements are often insufficient for real security. Did you know that cameras required in order for you to be compliant are largely for operational purposes for the state? Or that a monitored alarm system doesn’t automatically mean adequate protection? Do the research on what is truly needed for your facility, or choose a security company that has done the research for you. There are affordable options available that don’t require expensive hardware, wiring or software to make them work.
