"Industries of all types have already started shoring up their defences and reshaping the way they handle data, yet all that hard work is likely to be undone by something as seemingly innocuous as a printer."
"Print security obligations under GDPR remain one of the most misunderstood areas of the new regulations, potentially creating a blind spot that could not only lead to a data breach, but also substantial fines for non-compliance."
"As with any device that's connected to the internet, MFPs are susceptible to unwanted snooping. Without effective security protocols, unauthorised users are able to gain access to a printing network and any document that has been sent to a machine. What's more, most machines also make use of facilities such as scan to email, scan to cloud, or scan to internal storage, which could all be compromised to either steal sensitive data in bulk, or reroute future correspondence to external addresses."
"Maintaining the security of an MFP network is a daunting task. The sheer number of potential weak spots on your system, not to mention the various differences that exist between printer brands, makes performing regular manual checks for vulnerabilities unfeasible."
"As with other IoT devices, there are tools available that provide a complete overview of your system, and cut down on a lot of the hard work."
