5 Security Challenges Facing Wineries & Breweries

Wineries and breweries are especially vulnerable to fraud and theft—and simultaneously have unique assets to carefully monitor, such as agricultural areas, containers, tasting rooms, product-making areas and temperature-controlled storage facilities. Protecting these assets directly impacts your bottom line. CameraScan designs, installs and maintains video surveillance systems for wineries and breweries in Washington, Oregon and California to help protect your people, profits and property.

In our 25+ years of experience, here are the 5 biggest security challenges facing wineries and breweries:

Employee Monitoring
A panel of law enforcement and business auditors at the Wine Industry Financial Symposium recently told wineries to wise up. “Fraud is pervasive in business”, said moderator Jim Petray, a CPA at Burr, Pilger & Mayer. “Most disturbing, it can happen from a person who is a well-trusted individual” — someone whom you’d never normally suspect of theft.” Video surveillance is one way to monitor employees to protect your profits and boost productivity. Read more.

The right cameras in the right place
CameraScan technicians work with you to design a security system with specific cameras placed at locations to monitor key activities and detect equipment that needs repair or is operating in an unsafe/inefficient manner. Read more.

Liquor Liability
Liquor liability cases can be a serious problem for anyone who serves alcohol. If a bartender over serves drinks or serves drinks to minors, you need to protect your business! Video surveillance is one of the best ways to catch and deter employees from this issue.

Liquor Documentation
As a winery or brewery owner, you are responsible for cooperating with workers’ compensation, slip-and-fall claims, and the parties and attorneys involved. It is imperative that you can protect your business and provide documentation. Video surveillance can save you thousands in fraudulent claims.

Monitor operations anytime from any device.
