Conversations about GDPR and print security can be pretty awkward, or at the very least a little uncomfortable. So let’s make this quick!
The first perception is that GDPR compliance for businesses involves costly investment. But this does not necessarily have to be the case. And it certainly doesn’t have to be as clumsy and awkward as our good friend Dave!
GDPR and printing – some simple tips
Brother’s SMB laser printer range has a host of embedded security features that can be deployed to ‘serve and protect’ a business from GDPR’s heavyweight penalties. And while every business should have suitable firewalls and anti-virus software running to protect their core business systems against hackers, printers are an easily overlooked, but easily fixed consideration too.
With a pull-printing solution, such as Brother’s Secure Print+, you can provide employees with PINs or key cards that ensure print jobs can only be released once the user is at the device. This prevents any sensitive documents being left unattended.
If you want to take your security to the next level, look no further than Brother’s Secure Function Lock feature. Administrators can limit users’ access to device functions, such as access to settings, so even if their credentials fall into the wrong hands, interlopers are still barred from tampering with the device.
Make sure you change the default passwords on your printers. Plus, frequently update firmware and drivers. And if/when you do decide to upgrade your printers, choose devices that use secure protocols such as TLS (the successor to SSL) and SFTP, while encrypting all data.
