Document Security for In-Plant Printing and Enterprise Fleet Management

Hardly a day goes by when headlines in the news media don’t remind us that data security breaches are happening everywhere.

Huge troves of private and proprietary information are being compromised either because of carelessness or as a result of malicious attacks. One clear point of entry is through the devices that enterprise fleets and in-plants use to get their document production done.

For one thing, this equipment has open output trays from which anyone—data thieves included—can pick up sensitive documents. Additionally, they have hard drives full of retrievable information from previously printed jobs. And this equipment is connected to potentially hackable networks.

A new white paper from Canon Solutions America serves as a guide to shielding enterprise copier fleets, in-plant printing operations, and other document centers from losses due to data breaches. It will outline the scope of the problem; discuss the legal and regulatory aspects of data management for document producers; review best practices and solutions for loss prevention; consider the needs of selected vertical markets; and offer guidelines for teaching document security awareness.
