Take Copier Security to the Next Level
There are many methods that businesses are implementing to further increase the security of their copiers. If copy equipment is left unsecured, important data such as employee information and client data can be extracted. Aside from this information, there is a multitude of data stored on your copiers that includes everything from billing information to your most confidential files. Leaving your copy equipment unsecured is risky and could lead to compliance issues down the road. It is up to you to ensure that your data is as secure as possible.
Here are some tips to ensure your data is safe:
- Erase Data Periodically: Copiers and multifunction printers have built in hard drives to store data. Clearing this data will prevent anyone from viewing it.
- Remove All Data Before Returning: If you lease your equipment or are planning on selling current equipment, ensure your data is completely cleared off and the device is returned to factory settings before sending it out of the office.
- Secure Your Network: An unsecure network poses a number of security threats and allows users from outside your company to find and exploit your internal data.
