Print security is a marathon, not a sprint. However, that doesn't mean it has to be back-breaking. Here are a few simple workflow solutions that will make print security a breeze!
It's not always easy to know where to start when it comes to print security. After all, there's so much to worry about--like your data, your networks, and your printers themselves, which can all be vulnerable if you don't make print security a priority.
Hackers actually target printers first because they figure smaller businesses haven't done their homework and put solid, reliable solutions in play.
Luckily, you don't have to freeze up because you don't know where to start. Instead, take "baby steps" and try implementing one new workflow solution at a time. That way, you don't have to deal with huge learning-curves, and you don't have to worry about your workflows getting interrupted.
Here are a few solutions to try out!
Follow-me printing is a great way to take control of your printer security, helping make sure that the person who hit print is the same person who picks up the document off the tray. It does this by requiring a code or password at the printer, which helps keep stray documents from falling into the wrong hands.
User authentication is a simple but powerful way to make sure the right people have the right information. It helps keep employees organized, sure, but it also acts as another defense for keeping external threats at a minimum.
Printers are like elephants: they remember everything--everything you print, that is. It's important to schedule regular data sweeps so that your printer doesn't sit there hoarding your information and making itself into a goldmine for data thieves.
