The print security blind spot

The work to ensure your printer is secure starts the moment you take it out of the box.

Most modern, networked printers run a full OS, handle sensitive data and have a trusted relationship with the internal network. However, they are not necessarily treated in the same way as assets like workstations and servers, and patches and updates are often ignored.

How a printer can compromise your protection

Even the seemingly value-less documents that businesses use as part of their standard operations can be useful to cybercriminals when it comes to committing fraud, so keeping this documentation safe from creation to deletion is vital.

How cybercriminals operate today

A lot of people still have a perception of hackers as hooded criminals or teenagers in a bedroom, when in fact they work a 9-5 shift, a lot like us. They’re globally dispersed and use sophisticated collaboration tools to exchange information that can be leveraged for financial gain.

The information hackers target

Criminals follow the money. Once they’ve broken in to your business, they look for ways to authorise payments, perhaps through payroll staff or suppliers. In the worst cases, they could interfere with M&A activity involving very large transactions.

How cybercriminals could use your printer to steal from you

A lot of sensitive information, for example HR records or financial statements, are printed for internal purposes, and the information stored on the printer can be extracted by criminals. That information can then be used to circumvent your protection, impersonate you or even send rogue invoices so they get paid instead of you.

Protect documents against tampering

By no means a sophisticated security threat, the ramifications of document tampering could have a devastating impact. Poor toner adhesion can lead to data security breaches and irrevocable reputational damage.

Brother Genuine Supplies are the easiest way for you to protect your business from document tampering – text or numbers from confidential documents cannot be altered without your knowledge, safeguarding your business from the risk of fraudulent activity.

Enhance your security settings

Limit internal data threats with robust user authentication functionality. Brother’s Secure Print+ NFC authentication allows you to request that all users release documents through a PIN or ID card.

Organisations are also able to tailor machine functions in line with user permissions and requirements. Through Brother’s Custom user interface solution, administrators are able to restrict certain features and functions to ensure that safe printing practices are adhered to.
