Is your data at risk?

HP can help conduct an assessment of your printing security.

Printing and imaging systems-and data-can be compromised in a variety of ways.

  • Hard copy theft–Nearly 30% of all printed documents are left at the printer for anyone to take.
  • Hardware theft–Documents sent to HP printers and MFPs can be stored for later printing. A stolen hard disk can expose these documents.
  • Unauthorized changes to settings–If a device’s settings and controls are unprotected, anyone can reroute print jobs and even access vital passwords and network information.
  • Unauthorized MFP use–MFPs can send, fax and even e-mail. Anyone with access to your MFP can also send confidential information to any fax number or e-mail address in the world.
  • Network sniffing–A “network sniffer” can read data traveling between a PC and a printer, exposing the print job, routing addresses and more.

What happens when security lapses aren’t fixed? Every year, millions of dollars are lost due to:

  • Private and corporate lawsuits
  • Government fines
  • Industry violations
  • Employee and customer identity theft
  • Stolen competitive information
