So you have state-of-the-art security software and hardware rolled out in your environment, a great security and privacy policy adhered to in your organization and you have taken every step to protect your organization’s data and the privacy of your employees and customers? Think again.

What about copier machines? Did you know that almost all copier machines have a hard drive built into it? Yes? No? Watch this interesting video to learn more.

Key go-do’s:

  • Find out how many copier machines in your organization have a built-in hardware or other data storage.
  • Figure out how to clear the images saved on that hard drive
  • Document a process for discarding/repurposing used copier machines – just as you would discard computers. Make sure wiping the hard drive is on the list.
  • Make sure data on the hard drives is wiped before these machines leave your premises for repairs and maintenance.
