Businesses: Copier, Scanners & Faxes Are Overlooked Security Risks

Most companies shred documents and protect secrets with confidentiality agreements. However there are also risks associated with Copiers, Scanners, and Fax Machines. These machines typically  save the information to their internal hard drive when employees scan, copy, or email documents. This creates an opportunity for theft.

Theft can occur by accessing the device remotely or physically acquiring the hard drive when the company sells or returns the equipment.

Consider the HR private information that gets copied on copiers, company numbers and strategies.

IT specialists can help by installing encryptions or memory swipes. Ask your copier maintenance company for assistance.
