8 Serious Security Threats Your Copier Poses To Your Business

Bet you never thought twice about the many documents that you are sending to your office machine every day. Well, in a recent blog post, we alerted our readers to the fact that your copier is actually storing every document that it processes on a hard drive. This obviously poses a great security risk to your business, as all your confidential information can be accessed by malicious parties.

But that’s not it. Because today’s office machines operate almost like a computer with features such as data storage, operating systems, CPUs and, in particular, networking, they are vulnerable to a host of other security risks too:

Default Passwords: A default password for all administrative accounts means that everyone has access to everything. Using the same standard password on your copier means that all stored data is available to view and configure, both locally and remotely.

Unencrypted Data: Every document that is scanned, copied, printed or faxed is stored on the hard drive of your machine and is therefore vulnerable to be captured. All sensitive paperwork that is not encrypted can be accessed and exploited.

Outdated Operating Systems: As with any computing device, if the software is not updated regularly, it is possible for others to take control of the device remotely and access the stored data on your machine.

Maintenance Personnel: Be aware that every time your machine is serviced, you are giving access to those working on your machine.

Disposing Of Your Machine: Whether you sell on your device, or you send it for refurbishing or warehousing, all the data stored on the hard drive of your copier remains accessible for use and exploitation.

If these don’t scare you, read on to see how your machine can be made unavailable to you if you do not take the necessary precautions:

Unauthorized Use: If not configured properly, your office machine will process any job that is submitted to it, regardless of the origin or lack of authorization. This can result in a waste of paper, toner and ink.

Denial Of Service (DoS): Without proper protection, your office machine is vulnerable to a DoS attack – a malicious attempt to make your device unavailable to you.

Alteration Of Passwords Or Settings: If an unauthorized user accesses your machine and alters the passwords, you will be blocked from using your own device.

Security breaches are expensive in regard to both business finances and reputation. It is your responsibility to ensure that your machine is not compromised in any way.

Prevent Paper Jams – Top Tips for Paper Storage and Handling

printer paperLooking after your printer or copier also means caring for the paper you feed into it. Preventing jams and damage to your office machine begins well before you hit the green button; it starts before you even load the paper into the input tray. Follow the tips here for the correct way to purchase, store and load your office paper and save yourself headache and hassle with your new office machine as well.

• The #1 biggest enemy to your paper is damp, humid or moist conditions. Make sure the packets arrive completely sealed, and they stay in this condition till as close as possible to time of use. Once the packet is opened ensure the humidity of the environment will not damage the paper. (If you live in a humid climate, leave paper in the tray for only a few hours at a time and store the paper in a sealed plastic bag when it’s not being used)

• Using quality paper will also enable a smoother and less problematic printing experience. High quality paper will have some grain to it, so that’s not completely smooth to the touch. This allows the copier or printer to hold onto the paper properly and send it through the machine without “losing its grip”. Generally, the heavier the paper weight, the more grain it will have. Use a minimum of 20lbs paper weight in any copier or inkjet printer and 24lbs. in a laser printer.

• Paper should be stored entirely flat and free from any risk of getting wrinkled, warped, or curled. Papers in such conditions are a recipe for causing paper jams in the machine.

• Paper straight out the packet might be slightly stuck to one another as a result of the pressure and compression during manufacture when cutting and stacking the sheaf. Make sure the stack of papers you load into the tray are not stuck by loosening the sheets by fanning them or roll the stack gently, diagonally, in opposite directions.

• Paper should be placed in the same room as the copy machine at least 24 hours before its use in the machine. This will allow the paper to acclimate to the temperature and humidity of the environment and will help it to perform better.

Pull the tray completely out of the machine when loading the paper and make sure that any sliders are aligned properly to fit the size of the paper you are using. Don’t overload the tray with more papers than the specified capacity.
