Copy Machines, a Security Risk?

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the good, old-fashioned copy machine. But, as Armen Keteyian reports, advanced technology has opened a dangerous hole in data security.

The CBS Evening News featured a story about copier security. As we’ve been saying for years, copiers or multifunction printers (MFPs) are at risk for a data breach just like a laptop or desktop PC and CBS proved this by extracting data from MFPs purchased second-hand.

This investigation may have you wondering about the security of the data that has flowed through your MFPs.
