Did You Know Your Printer Is One Of The Hackers High-Value Targets?

Want to keep your data safe – don’t overlook your printer. Most printers are set up using the default password…people forget, printers are computers to. We’re no longer in the dot matrix world of direct connect printers – these network devices are often wireless, computer driven, and left wide open for hacker to control. It’s also a fact that many printers and copy machines record images and store them as you make copies of financial records and other highly sensitive data. Check with your security administrators to make sure your printers are locked down – and before selling or disposing of one, be sure the data has been completely wiped from these devices.

Warning! The Internet Isn’t As Private As You Think It Is…

It’s important to think before putting something online.

That goes for email, social media posts, and of course, your company data.

The attached article shows how easy it is to take data, seemingly anonymous, and to attach names to it.

In this news report, medical information was put online (In the cloud).

Computers were then used to search the internet, looking for public information that matched the medical records – in a short amount of time they had names to go with each medical entry, exposing one’s entire medical history.

You can’t control what your doctor puts in the cloud, however you can limit your personal information.
