Im not sure what surprised me most in this video by CBS News: Copy Machines, a Security Risk? That so many people are not aware that MFP’s (multi-function printers) keep a copy of what you copy; Or, the fact that someone paid just a few hundred dollars for a copier that looks similar to a white elephant we lease for a princely sum.
Well, it’s the first point that is important: There are hard drives in those MFP’s. CBS did a good job explaining the security risk and their segment is worth watching. Especially if you are concerned about sensitive or regulated information like files that might fall under compliance requirements.
