Thought-leadership Cyber security threats and mitigation techniques for multifunctional devices

Every small, medium or enterprise organisation makes use of printers, copiers, scanners, faxes and multifunctional devices for day-to-day operational functions of the organisation. These devices are either purchased outright or obtained on a lease contract. When the device's end-of-life is reached, the devices are either disposed of through donations to non-profit organisations or retuned back to the original equipment manufacturer at the end of a lease agreement contract. Unknown to most IT operations personnel and information security personnel, these devices carry an inherent vulnerability. These devices have secure and unsecure network communications protocols, hard disk drives, volatile memory, and non-volatile memory. All these device specifications are vulnerable to cyber threats and attacks.

  • Determine the extent to which your organisation is expose to the threat of sensitive information belonging to either an organisation or its employees being accessed
  • Gain insight into research that was conducted on such devices
  • Get guidelines on how to safely use and decommission such devices to circumvent the loss of sensitive information
