Copiers Pose Huge Security Risk for Business
We recently became aware of a news item that has potential staggering implication for the safety & security of your business information including personnel & financial records; literally anything that has ever been run through your copier.
The risk comes from the hard drive that is an integral part of any digital copier. Typically, an image of each and every document that has been run through the machine may be stored on this hard drive. This includes documents that were copied, printed, faxed or scanned.
At the end of your lease when the machine leaves your possession these document images remain on the hard drive within the copier and are easily accessed by anyone with the correct software, available for free on the internet. This information is potentially damaging to your business and a boon for anyone involved in information theft. In cases of protected information like medical records & credit reports your business may be in violation of statues and subject to fines.
Delta Protective Services is taking the necessary steps to ensure that your information on our business machines is properly protected and will NEVER be released accidentally.
