Hackers are always looking to get access to sensitive information, and one of the ways they do this is through printers and digital copiers. Many of these devices have hard drives on them, and they can be easily accessed just like any other computer.
As such, deleting data from your printers and copiers is a must for any organization that stores sensitive information and aims to protect it.

Because Sensitive Documents are Everywhere
As a business owner, it’s your legal responsibility to safeguard your company’s sensitive documents and maintain reasonable procedures that will protect company info, and personal consumer information from the risk of identity theft. This is especially true when you have networked multifunction devices since they can be easily accessed and compromised by cybercriminals. Specific compliance obligations for a particular industry may also require you to abide by certain data security requirements. Such information, when fallen into the wrong hands, can be used against you and your company.
Copies of these documents can be found in printers, photocopiers, networked copiers, and other digital devices. Protecting sensitive information is essential to secure not just your company’s reputation, but also your clients and employees. Therefore, it’s crucial to have your printers and copiers regularly wiped off by a professional servicing company to guarantee that all sensitive data you no longer need is gone for good. Experts will use a particular software that can detect and delete every trace of this information.
Unfortunately, sensitive documents are everywhere, and these may include things like:
- Credit reports
- Consumer information
- Legal documents
- Financial statements
- Employee background screens
- Patient medical records
How Digital Copier Stores Data
Digital copiers are today’s most common workplace tool that’s considered a smart innovation. It does more than copying. It can print, copy, fax, scan, and even email documents. The machine helps manage incoming jobs, as well as workloads that need to be shared with other companies.
However, not all its security features are always reliable. You may not be aware of this, but generally, information is stored in the Hard drive disk space, which is also used to hold the operating system, utility software programs as well as other data. When a digital copier’s life cycle ends or a leased copier’s return date approaches, it will be returned to the leasing company. Without you knowing, all the data you’ve printed, scanned, or copied before leaves the building too. This means that every document you have printed to the machine is at risk of being accessed by unauthorized persons. The hard drive where you store information can be stolen, whether by remote access or extraction, once it has been removed from the machine. A digital copier will store scanned documents or any other digital content permanently or for a specific period.
Regardless, this poses a chance for hackers to easily exfiltrate sensitive data. This is especially true with digital copiers connected to a network.

Innovative Utility Software Programs Built to Secure
Oftentimes, business owners wonder what they can do to best protect their critical data. You could try overwriting existing data or perhaps removing the digital copier hard drive on your own. However, these hard drives frequently include needed firmware that allows the device to function. If the hard drive is removed and destroyed without the ability to replace the firmware, this makes the machine inoperable. The best way to protect your networked copier data from potential exposure is to use a highly reliable utility software program that can detect and remove any traces of information on digital copiers, scanners, printers, and other office devices.
