Printer Security Often Overlooked

All
printer security

Printers have been often overlooked when it comes to security despite being vulnerable to hacking. Printers can be hijacked as a weak point to attack an organisation's network, steal sensitive documents, and store pirated files. Hackers can also cause a printer's fuse to continually heat up to cause further economic damages for victims.

Organisations are advised to adopt the necessary tools to maintain information security and compliance to security standards.
