It is easy to overlook security risks associated with printed documents and company printers. However, unsecured printed documents can be read by anyone, anywhere. Think about what could happen if unauthorised people gain access to confidential financial statements and reports, competitive plans and strategies, or employee personal information. That is why it is so important to print only what is necessary and to keep printed documents secure.
Many attackers use malware, printer attack tools or other methods to compromise printers through network connections. Once a hacker succeeds, that breach can be leveraged for many purposes. The most common aims are gaining unauthorised access to any information being sent to that printer, and using the printer as a starting point to infiltrate other district systems.
Given these risks, businesses should take stock of printer-related concerns and develop a realistic plan to address them.
