It may sound paranoid, but it’s true: The machines you use every day around the office could be spying on your data. Copiers and multifunction printers, particularly, are some of the leading causes of business data breaches. When you consider it, it makes sense.
They’re among the only devices on the network that rarely have their default password changed. But these advanced copiers and printers often house images of all the pages they’ve ever scanned on an internal hard drive, making them the perfect target for thieves. Make sure to change the password from the default on every network-connected device in your office. This one simple step can save you a costly headache down the road.
