Cyber Bites

Printers and scanners

Printers and scanners are often forgotten devices that are important for your firm’s cybersecurity. Did you know there’s a feature on some printers or scanners that can be set to retain a copy of everything it processes?

You should disable the option to keep data or ensure data encryption otherwise anyone who has access to the machine has access to the private data it processed (unauthorized user, repair, sale, theft).

Take a picture of the configuration panel and put it in your cyber folder as evidence of risk prevention.
