You are happy with your Lanier product, so you want to make sure that it has an extended life and continues to produce diligently. To ensure that your Lanier copier is not compromised you should learn how to secure it.
Your Copier Is a Computer
You Lanier copier is not just a machine makes copies. It is, in fact, a smart machine or a computer. Inside of it is a hard drive that stores information from the scanning and print jobs it has completed. Without proper protection, this data is vulnerable to be stolen.
Before and After Acquisition
When you get a new copier, it’s important to notify your IT staff. They will want to make sure they know how the hardware works and how to integrate it with your current network.
If ever the time comes that you need to return or dispose of your copier, remember to have a plan for the hard drive. You can ask a technician to remove it for you, removing it yourself can cause damage to the machine. The other option protecting your data is to have the hard drive wiped clean, this option works if you no longer need the information.
Take advantage of available security features on your Lanier copier. An easy step to take is implementing a passcode that only allows authorized users to access print jobs. Always make sure to overwrite the entire hard drive once a month. Another easy way to secure sensitive information is to place the copier in a high traffic area instead of a secluded corner.
Investing in a Lanier copier is a step towards increased productivity for your office. Don’t let a security breach be the reason for shut down of operations.
