Old Copiers – Be Afraid, Be Very Afraid….

by | Jul 6, 2010 | jahlberg

Not sure if you have seen or read anything about copier related security breaches, but it seems to be the talk of the town lately. Nowadays, copiers have hard drives and every copy, scan, and print job that is done is stored on that drive. Sell or give away your copier and you give away all of your copier data as well. I would think that most hard drives hold months, or even years worth of data, so this could be a huge security concern for a lot of companies.

Definitely something to worry about when getting rid of an old copier.

Waident’s Director of Managed Care Bob Green wrote something on this topic last month which can be seen here. His article also includes a link to a good CBS News story on the topic with some real world examples. https://www.waident.com/blog/viewpost/459
