Digital Photocopiers Loaded With Secrets

How a digital copier can become a treasure trove for an identity thief, because they have a hard drive which permanently store all images which have been digitally printed, scanned, faxed, emailed or copied on that printer. Storing images on the hard drive can be a huge threat to the security of an organization and a serious breach to the privacy law when these printers need maintenance, needed to be returned at end of a lease period or simply retired without erasing the data from the hard drive.

Due diligence of erasing the data before an identity thief gets their paws on it is squarely falls on the shoulder of the organization who owns the digital printer.
