He added that the covid-19 pandemic has left great consequences (such as lack of employment, business closures and layoffs) that have affected dozens of formal and informal businesses in Mexico, since the size of these does not allow them to face similar situations, since their resources are limited and their daily activity is what keeps them afloat.
Ángel Kociankowski, commercial director of Corporativo Ultra, commented that, in the last 18 months, the pandemic has brought with it an episode of terror and anxiety, and it is the increase in insecurity.
“The use of technology and the human factor have become the dynamic duo of today, since they go hand in hand with each other. Today everyone needs to have from their mobile devices the image of the security cameras installed in their homes and businesses and it is not for less, the perception of insecurity of Mexicans indicates that 73% of them fear living in their cities, said the executive.
After these alarming statistics, “we can conclude that on many occasions the federal, state and municipal authorities cannot cope or have (on many occasions) the capacity to offer a solution, since they do not have the personnel, the equipment, or the technology necessary to counteract crime and offer us the security we demand as a society ”.
