We ran a great webinar on cyber security awareness.
Here's what we discussed.
There is a security blind spot that many IT departments are not addressing, your printers. Often, we get blank stares when we broach the topic of print security and the vulnerabilities that come with printers. It is common for us to hear, “my printers are behind my firewall, and for that reason they are not a vulnerability”. This assertion could not be further from the truth—your laptops, servers, users, and network are also behind your firewall.
An unfortunate reality is that many organizations conduct vulnerability testing on their networks, but printers are often not part of these assessments and are overlooked. Why should you care? Some of the most important information in your business interacts with your printers, including confidential documents and user information such as passwords. Malicious actors know that printers are an easy entry point and the damage that can be done is significant.
Webinar attendees learned many things.
Here are 3 of the main takeaways:
- Most common security vulnerabilities associated with printers
- Hacker tools used on printers
- Best practices for securing networks from printer related vulnerabilities and threats
