A lot of business owners lock down their computers and mobile devices because they do not want to deal with cyber criminals. However, a lot of people will overestimate their safety with digital copiers. These machines may seem like they are protected perfectly, but sensitive information gets scanned to the hard drive almost every day. Security should be at the forefront of your mind when you go to purchase a copier because a data breach can cost you thousands or even millions of dollars.

To strengthen your security, create a security policy that your employees follow to increase the safety at your company. If you have a security kit with overwriting or encryption, we recommend overwriting your data on a weekly basis, depending on how often you use the copier. When it comes to securing your corporate infrastructure, you have a few things that you can do. For example, you can use a PIN-pad access point that will ensure you regulate the copier. Also, look for a copier that uses intelligent network cards to block unauthorized devices from gaining access. These are some security tips that can help your company to strengthen your copier’s security.
